Implementation Strategies for Production of Renewable Hydrogen in California

Senate Bill 1505 (Lowenthal, Chapter 877, Statutes of 2006) requires that, on a statewide basis, no less than 33.3 percent of the hydrogen produced for, or dispensed by, fueling stations that receive state funds be made from eligible renewable energy resources. To meet future demand, more sources of renewable hydrogen are expected to be necessary.

To inform a future renewable hydrogen production solicitation utilizing Emerging Opportunities funding, staff will seek stakeholder input on:

  • Current inventory and future demand for renewable hydrogen transportation fuel,
  • Renewable gas and electricity projects that are candidates for renewable hydrogen generation systems,
  • Optimal siting and capacity of a renewable hydrogen generation facility, and
  • Existing and future options for generating and distributing renewable hydrogen.

California Energy Commission staff will hold a public workshop to discuss strategies that can lead to increased and more cost-effective in-state production and distribution of renewable hydrogen transportation fuel. The workshop will include presentations and discussions.
