If you're interested in learning more about the future of fuel cell vehicles in the Golden State, the California Fuel Cell Partnership would like to present you with a couple of options: an infographic with facts and figures or a report called "A California Road Map: The Commercialization of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles" (which you can get either as an overview and technical versions).
CaFCP's infographic has got more visual appeal and is more likely to reach consumers than the white papers. Here are some of the data CaFCP would like to share:
- Fuel cell vehicles have zero emissions, can go 250 to 400 miles per fueling, and only takes five minutes to refuel.
- Hydrogen can be domestically produced.
- Initial H2 stations are being deployed into key markets with connector stations joining these clusters into regional networks.
- 68 stations are needed by the beginning of early commercialization in 2015 to push the technology forward. So far, a little over half (41) of the fuel station icons have check marks (which means they are operational or in development).
- $65 million is needed in additional funding to build out these 68 stations.
