Financing the 101st Station Workshop.

The State of California has authorized $200 M in cost-sharing to build 100 hydrogen fueling stations to meet the initial needs of the market for light duty hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. Seventeen stations are now in full retail operation and additional stations are opening at the rate of nearly one per week. It is expected that the number of retail stations may total 40 by the end of 2016. Approximately 400-500 stations will be needed in California alone by 2030. Without government funding, stations currently being completed or under development will not create enough revenue for investors, and even with government funding they are likely to lose money for quite a few years. This workshop will convene a group of experts to develop breakthrough concepts for building the hydrogen infrastructure primarily with private capital. This group is going to figure this investment conundrum out, and determine pathways to create a viable financial plan. The broader vision for hydrogen energy extends to power generation, grid management of intermittent renewables, energy storage and goods movement including fuel cell lift trucks and heavy duty freight.
