Shell wants to develop, build, own and operate a multi-modal hydrogen refuelling station in California – and it’s believed to be the world’s first.
The oil and gas company, through its Shell Oil Products US subsidiary, on Wednesday (August 11) received a $4m grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to support the development which aims to more than triple standard station capacity.
Further to that, the capital will support further hydrogen fuel cell demonstrations in rail and marine applications at ports across the sunshine state.
“Shell is grateful for grant funding awarded today from the CEC. We are excited to develop, build, own and operate the world’s first multi-modal hydrogen refuelling station, in California,” the company said in a statement sent to H2 View.
Once operational the station will serve hydrogen fuel cell-powered cars, heavy-duty trucks and locomotives.
