We Covered this in our Weekly Wire Roundup
Core Purpose of the Program
The Clean Transportation Program of the California Energy Commission (CEC) announced the availability of up to $7 million in grant funds for projects. These funds were used to design, engineer, build, install, test, operate, and maintain a hydrogen facility in California that will produce 100% renewable hydrogen from in-state renewable resources.
Once completed and operating, the plant will be a 100 percent renewable hydrogen source used as a transportation fuel. When distributed at a station, the hydrogen produced will fulfill California standards for usage in on-road fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), both light-duty and medium-/heavy-duty.
The CEC also reserved the right to raise or decrease the amount of money available under this solicitation at its sole discretion.
