The California Fuel Cell Partnership announced that it has changed its scope to become a national organization and is now the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Partnership (HFCP). The expanded scope of the government-industry partnership, which has been active for 23 years in California, is aimed at further enabling government, private industry, universities, and other stakeholders to take lessons learned from successes achieved and challenges met in California to other states and communities across the U.S.
The Partnership has also put forward a new national hydrogen mobility strategy, seeking to accelerate the expansion of national hydrogen production and distribution to support heavy-duty trucking and light-duty vehicles across the U.S. The strategy will enable the necessary links between ports, key commercial and urban centers, and hydrogen hubs across the United States and ideally, North America. The organization will leverage its earlier roadmaps and policy experience, along with national laboratory and state transportation models.
