New roadmap provides guidance on actions needed to launch and scale the California renewable hydrogen production sector to advance state policy goals

The Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) recently completed a roadmap for the scaling and build-out of the renewable hydrogen production sector in California to serve a broad range of applications in the energy and transportation sectors.

Renewable hydrogen can be a key foundation in decarbonisation strategies, serving as a flexible source of renewable energy available on demand and storable in massive quantities.

“The roadmap, which is grounded in extensive research, stakeholder input, and quantitative analysis, projects that California can achieve a self-sustaining renewable hydrogen sector by the mid 2020’s, meaning one which grows without special subsidies,” said the report’s principal author Dr. Jeff Reed, APEP Chief Scientist for Renewable Fuels and Energy Storage.

The effort focused on extracting insights from the first set of renewable hydrogen production facilities under development in California to establish current cost and system performance levels and then projecting forward through 2050.
