Thread of highlights for CA's #ZEV Strategy. Obviously includes FCEVs and BEVS and I'll focus on #hydrogen. I say this not to be snarky but the word "efficiency" did not make an appearance while "resilience" popped up 10 times-Simply put large market for both FCEVs & BEVs 1/18
200 Hydrogen stations by 2025 up from 140 total previously announced
1.5 million ZEVs by2025
Timely deployment of H2 and Charging stations to support 5 million ZEVS by2030
Timely deployment of ZEV stations to support 100% zero-emission new sales of passenger ZEVs by 2035
Ongoing Targets:
Customers can access ZEV fuels that are cleaner and less costly than fossil fuels
Timely deployment of charging and fueling infrastructure to support medium-, heavy-duty, and off-road vehicle and equipment
Workforce that can meet timing, scale needs 3/
Four Market Pillars:
1. Vehicles:
Well known light and heavy ZEVs plus construction, mining, materials handling, industrial operations, agriculture, recreation, and other industries and high-speed rail, locomotives, marine vessels, and aircraft. 4/
2. Infrastructure:
Fueling infrastructure to support all ZEVs to include H2 and Charging stations and the energy systems that them. Vehicle-grid integration and grid integration of fueling systems (e.g., hydrogen produced through electrolysis) are important components to... 5/
cost-effectively expand renewable energy penetration, improve resilience, and drive charging and fueling value for end users and the grid. Shout out to @ElectronComm for so elegantly discussing the importance of resilience in systems on multiple occasions. 6/
+ Includes the supply chain to enable infrastructure build out that offers the opportunity to fuel a ZEV at a lower cost than conventional fossil fuels. 7/
3. End Users:
Consumers, riders, eet operators, transportation network companies, car dealers, drivers, transportation planning agencies, program administrators, ports, regional and local governments and communities, trucking companies, fuel providers, and more. 8/
4. Workforce:
The human workforce, including supply chains, needed to design, manufacture, sell, construct and install, service and maintain ZEVs, ZEV infrastructure, ZEV distribution systems, dealerships, energy systems, networks of charging and fueling stations and other... 9/
ZEV-related build. Also includes those at third-party support companies whose work with ZEV focused institutions is critical to operating and expanding the ZEV market, such as marketing and advertising, roadside assistance companies, financiers, insurance agencies, and recyclers
Other notable info:
California embraces all zero-emission pathways.
With respect to hydrogen, many of today’s stations have multiple dispensers, can dispense four to eight times more hydrogen than those initially deployed just 5 years ago while being built at half the cost. 11/
With supportive policies, experts project that green electrolytic hydrogen and renewable hydrogen produced with organic material feedstock can be cost competitive with gasoline by the mid-2020s. With volume, FCEV costs are estimated to rapidly decrease... 12/
with high expectations for delivering additional value especially in larger size classes and for drivers with longer daily driving needs. This underscores the complementary nature of BEVs and FCEVs, both of which are needed to achieve a 100 percent ZEV future. 13/
Electricity Rates:
that are aligned with the CPUC principles of rate design, promote VGI and electrolytic hydrogen fuel production at times that are bene cial for the electric grid over the long term, while also protecting ratepayers and ensuring rates remain affordable. 14/
Electricity and hydrogen providers are keystone players in the market. Reliable, affordable, renewable energy delivery systems will serve to expand the market. 15/
Public and investor owned electric utilities:
Identify available capacity for ideal interconnection locations to provide grid bene ts at lower cost for charging infrastructure and electrolytic hydrogen production, and refueling and refueling facilities. 16/
Gas Utilities: Develop strategies for natural gas pipelines to become H2 carriers such as: accelerated interconnection process for H2 injection into the gas grid.Identify ideal interconnection locations to enable green H2 injection from electrolytic H2 production facilities 17/
I'm glad to be living in one of the #cleanenergy epicenters of the world, here in California, and glad to see how things have continued to develop with hydrogen and specifically the push for #greenhydrogen. End 18/18
