Liberty has become the first electric utility to join the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP).
Engaged in renewables, including the advancement of hydrogen, Liberty provides water, wastewater, gas and electric services to more than 800,000 customers in communities across the US.
This wealth of utility experience will provide additional perspective to help advance the CaFCP’s efforts.
Formed in 1999, the CaFCP is an industry-government collaboration aimed at expanding the market for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) powered by hydrogen to help create a cleaner, more energy-diverse future with zero emission vehicles.
The Partnership comprises auto manufactuers, energy companies, fuel cell technology companies, government agencies and others that work together to further commercialisation of FCEVs and hydrogen infrastructure.
“Protecting our environment is an important priority for Liberty, and we want to continue finding opportunities like CaFCP to be at the centre of the sustainability and energy transition conversation,” said Travis Johnson, Vice-President of Operations at Liberty.
“Joining the CaFCP gives Liberty a seat at the table to engage in important discussions about decarbonisation and clean, sustainable energy with other like-minded organisations.”
“We value collaboration and look forward to working with fellow members of CaFCP to create a more sustainable environment for future generations of Californians.”
