Hydrogen Energy Storage and Renewable Hydrogen

California has bold climate objectives to reach 100% renewable power by 2045 and hydrogen is key component of this transition, as a method of storing and distributing renewable and low-carbon power. The CHBC Hydrogen Energy Storage and Renewable Hydrogen Sector Action Group seeks to educate stakeholders, mainly policymakers, by providing information and resources on hydrogen production, delivery, and energy storage technology. The CHBC participates in public forums to describe how California’s strong renewable energy goals can be cost-effectively reached with reliable hydrogen and fuel cell technology.
