Hydrogen and Clean Air Technologies: Preparing for the Future
The mobility dialogue is the fourth of six brand-new conversations for 2022 on subjects critical to the Inland Empire’s transportation future. Through this video conference, experts will go through how hydrogen can help create cleaner air and a more sustainable fuel source in the future.
The series is free and open to the public with platinum-level support from HNTB Corp., Ontario International Airport, and San Bernardino International Airport.
Speakers of the Session
Speakers for this session include:
- Matt Gregori – SoCalGas’s clean energy technology scout.
- Tim Sasseen – Ballard Power Systems’ director of market development and public affairs in North America.
- Al Burgunder – Linde Inc.’s director of clean hydrogen.
- Foothill Transit’s Roland Cordero – director of maintenance and vehicle maintenance.
Advancement in the Transportation Industry
The transportation industry is about to undergo a significant transition as a result of the current focus on new, cleaner energy technologies.
Although hydrogen has been used as a fuel since the 17th century, new technological developments make hydrogen an attractive alternative to fossil fuels for transportation. They are responsible for climate change and air pollution.
Even though not all hydrogen is created equal, this fuel can offer an alternative that is cleaner, safer, and perhaps even cheaper for energy-intensive transportation.
Transportation can include long-distance freight, fleets of public transportation buses, and even passenger cars.
Kimberly Collins, the LTC executive director, said, “We are energized by the tremendous success of our first four years, and we invite anyone interested in being part of the conversation and solution to join us for this year’s innovative and engaging series.”
After the presentations, there will be a conversation where participants can voice their problems. They can contribute their suggestions to panelists, industry experts in the field of transportation, decision-makers, students, and each other.

The Leonard Transportation Center, a part of CSUSB, brings individuals together to provide the facts, discuss pressing concerns, and attempt to find solutions. The center is dedicated to the idea that including individuals from all walks of life in the talks will increase the likelihood of finding answers to Southern California’s mobility concerns.
