Merging the Electric and Transportation Sectors with Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Join YPE LA at the San Antonio Winery for networking and a panel discussion on the future of fuel cell technology in the electric and transportation sectors . Thank you to FuelCell Energy for sponsoring this event.


FuelCell Energy Direct FuelCell® (DFC®) power plants solve energy, environmental and business-related power generation challenges by providing ultra clean, efficient and reliable distributed power generation. The fuel cells combine a fuel such as renewable biogas, directed biogas or clean natural gas with oxygen from the ambient air to efficiently produce ultra-clean electricity and usable high quality heat via an electrochemical process. Virtually no pollutants are emitted due to the absence of combustion, benefiting public health. The high efficiency of the fuel cell power generation process supports the affordability of the DFC solution, and producing both electricity and heat from the same unit of fuel further supports favorable economics while also promoting sustainability.

Electric Fuel Cell cars powered by hydrogen are critical to meeting California's goals for Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs). Some of the world's largest automakers including Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, and Mercedes-Benz are mazing fuel cell vehicles the cornerstone of their zero emission vehicle strategy. Governor Jerry Brown signed an executive order calling for at least $1.5 million ZEVs on California roads by 2025. The California Air Resources Board's most recent Advanced Clean Cars Program builds upon the Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) mandate to increases numbers of ZEV technologies such as hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric vehicles and stipulates that by 2050, 87% of cars on the road will need to be full ZEVs.

California SB1505 states that at least 33% of hydrogen produced in California is produced from renewables creating unprecedented bridges between the transportation and the distributed generation sectors.

FuelCell Energy DFC®H2 technology generates electricity, heat and hydrogen using high temperature fuel cells with renewable fuels such as anaerobic digester gas (ADG). This technology is gaining momentum and is positioned as one of the most promising solutions to meet the ambitious California goals for renewable hydrogen.
