DRIVE: California's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program

Projects

LINDE, INC. – WEST SACRAMENTO AND LAGUNA NIGUEL HYDROGEN REFUELING STATIONS

<< Return to Projects

Linde, LLC. (Linde) is in the process of designing and procuring equipment for the construction of two new hydrogen fueling stations. The stations will be located at retail gasoline stations in Laguna Niguel and West Sacramento and they will have the capacity to dispense over 150 kilograms (kg) of hydrogen daily This capacity can fill roughly 20 fuel cell vehicles that fill up with 7 kg of hydrogen.

Grant Amount

The Energy Commission is providing $3,396,209 in Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Transportation Program funds.

Match Funding

Linde, Inc. will provide match funding of $1,110,721.

Project Benefits

FCVs produce zero tailpipe emissions and will reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by 44 percent compared to a conventional gasoline vehicle, depending on the percentage of renewable hydrogen dispensed. This project exemplifies California’s commitment to commercializing zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) that use hydrogen as a fuel and it supports California’s plan to diversify transportation fuels. Automobile manufacturers plan to roll out hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) in the 2015-2017 timeframe, and this project is part of California’s vision to expand the network of hydrogen fueling stations to 100.
