    Source: CaFCP: 1,000 H2 stations enabling 1M fuel cell electric vehicles on California roads in 2030 - Green Car Congress

    The California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) released its 2030 vision for California, The California Fuel Cell Revolution. The vision document describes a self-sustaining market in 2030 for fuel cell electric vehicles and renewably hydrogen, and the strategic priorities necessary for realizing it.

    The CaFCP document envisions 1,000 hydrogen stations enabling upwards of 1,000,000 fuel electric vehicles on California roads in 2030. The vision document also explores the synergies between light-duty and heavy-duty fueling infrastructure, the opportunities for renewable hydrogen and the role of hydrogen in the increasingly renewable electrical grid.

    A vision of the future where it will remain, always.

    The CaFCP's vision of the future continues to diverge more and more widely from reality.

    According to their predictions, there should have been over 100 H2 fueling stations open and running in California a couple of years ago. There are now, what? 35 or so?

    1000 H2 fueling stations by 2030... yeah, and we'll all be riding unicorns by then, too! :rolleyes:

    Hopefully this "hydrogen economy" boondoggle won't last many more years. Hopefully by 2030 the number of public H2 fueling stations will be shrinking every year, not growing.

    Well that was an odd read, at least they understand costs need to come down dramatically.

    Still seems like a hell of a lot more work than building EVs and installing fast chargers.
