This solicitation has two goals: 1) to develop infrastructure necessary to dispense hydrogen transportation fuel; and 2) to provide needed Operation and Maintenance (O&M) funding to support hydrogen refueling operations prior to the large-scale roll-out of Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs). Funding will be provided to construct, upgrade, or support hydrogen refueling stations that expand the network of publicly accessible hydrogen refueling stations to serve the current population of FCVs and accommodate the planned large-scale roll-out of FCVs commencing in 2015. This network will support alternative transportation fuel and vehicle technology goals of the State of California, such as the Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) regulation, which requires 14% of certain auto manufacturers' model year-2015 fleets to be zero‐emission vehicles, and the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, which is designed to reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels by 10 percent by 2020.
