On April 7, 2017, the CHBC submitted comments to the Air Resources Board in response to the Volkswagen Investment Plan. The CHBC voiced it's concern over the one-sided investment into battery electric infrastructure without consideration of hydrogen fuel cell technology and infrastructure. See CHBC's comments here >>
On March 24, 2017, the CHBC released its comments on the California Energy Commission's (CEC) 2017 IEPR and EPIC Investment Plan. These comments serve to inform the CEC of the importance of Power-to-Gas and its potential to enable high levels of renewable energy production while maximizing economic value and providing a large-scale, cost-effective solution for storing excess energy.

On February 14, 2017, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) released a report on the 2016 Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Ports Workshop, which was held on November 10, 2016, hosted by the Port of Los Angeles and co-sponsored by the Port of Long Beach. The report summarizes the presentations and discussions at the workshop, highlights challenges and outlines the next steps that were identified. See the CHBC report here >>
CHBC Releases White Paper on Power-to-Gas and Hydrogen Energy Storage
Document outlines high potential energy storage technology option able to provide renewable zero-emission baseload power, fuel, and heat for California
Los Angeles, CA – October 8, 2015 – Today, on National Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Day, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) has released its official White Paper “Power-To-Gas: The Case For Hydrogen”, outlining the feasibility and economics of energy storage solutions using hydrogen and methane as energy carriers. The White Paper is a project spearheaded by the HydrogenEnergy Storage Group in the CHBC and member companies.
To support the integration of ever-increasing amount of intermittent renewable generation, California is faced with a growing need to deploy utility-scale storage solutions. The White Paper is intended to provide policy makers and other interested parties with an overview of the concept and potential of hydrogen-based energy storage. It covers key aspects of this technology, including needs for grid scale energy storage, power-to-gas solutions, economic analysis, use cases and existing projects. Access the White Paper here >>.
California is where hydrogen gets down to business. And the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) is the vital link between hydrogen-technology developers, businesses, energy leaders, government, and infrastructure providers. A 501(c)(6) non-profit organization, members share a common vision of clean energy and transportation fueled by hydrogen.
