Black & Veatch and FirstElement Fuel Inc. are working to rapidly bring hydrogen fueling stations to consumers in California who want a zero emission option for their cars. FirstElement Fuel selected Black & Veatch to engineer, permit and construct 19 hydrogen refueling stations across California.
The project represents the first stage of a comprehensive program for constructing a statewide True Zero hydrogen network. It is the single largest deployment of hydrogen fueling stations in the United States. The project is backed by grants from the California Energy Commission and by loans from Toyota and Honda.
“Black & Veatch’s experience in building electrical vehicle charging infrastructure and distributed energy facilities makes it an ideal provider for this program.”
Joel Ewanick, CEO, FirstElement Fuel Inc.
