Shell has opened its fourth hydrogen station in the San Francisco Bay Area, the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) announced on Tuesday (12th Jan).
Located in Berkeley, at 1250 University Avenue, the station has a larger capacity and more fuelling positions to meet the needs of the growing fuel cell passenger car market in the Bay Area.
Open 24 hours a day, CaFCP said the station’s capacity is 560kg and has two fuelling nozzles at H70 pressure.
With two fuelling nozzles, two cars are able to fuel simultaneously, increasing the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
The station—and the three Shell San Francisco stations—offers 100% renewable hydrogen from biogas.
California requires that at least 33% of hydrogen fuel come from renewable sources.
For stations that qualify for the Low Carbon Fuel Standard ZEV infrastructure credit, that amount increases to 40%.
Did you know that CaFCP has a mobile-friendly website, Station Operational Status System (SOSS), that shows station availability and provides other station information, including hours of operation, address, H2 station operator and developer, etc? Check it out here.
