California Air Resources Board (CARB) annually completes an analysis of the current progress and projected future development of California’s hydrogen fueling station network and deploying fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). CARB completes these annual analyses based on information provided by auto manufacturers, station developers, and collaborating state agencies. Analyses characterize the past year of progress and identify opportunities for future hydrogen fueling network development.

Specifically, annual reports discuss the location and estimated number of FCEVs currently on the road and projected for future deployment, the coverage and capacity provided by the currently available and future hydrogen fueling network, and recent developments in hydrogen fueling station technology and standards. This year’s report “2021 Annual Evaluation of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Deployment and Hydrogen Fuel Station Network Development” has a significant focus on the impact of new grants for station construction recently awarded by the California Energy Commission.
