California Energy Commission Approves $8M Grant for Hydrogen Fuel Cell
Station at Port of Long Beach
November 9, 2018
California Energy Commission voted approved an $8 million grant to
develop a high-capacity hydrogen fueling station to service and promote
the expansion of zero-emission fuel cell electric Class 8 drayage trucks
at the Port of Long Beach. Drayage trucks transport freight from a port
to a warehouse or other location.
Promotion of fuel cell electric Class 8 drayage trucks can address the
use of older vehicles with little or no emission controls that operate
at the port. Promoting the use of zero-emission vehicles will help
reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution at the nationís second
busiest container port. The station will source hydrogen from 100
percent renewable biogas.
The Energy Commission also approved a plan outlining actions that
California can take to improve clean energy access in the low-income
multifamily building sector. The Clean Energy in Low-Income Multi-Family
Buildings (CLIMB) Action Plan also creates a foundation for long-term
change in accelerating the adoption of distributed energy resources in
the multifamily housing sector.
The plan was developed through a collaborative effort between the Energy
Commission, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and other
partner agencies. The plan implements recommendations from an Energy
Commission Low-Income Barriers Study.
Energy Commission also approved a recommendation allowing the cities of
Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and Riverside, and the Los Angeles
Department of Water and Power, to enter a power sales contract to
procure energy from an 840-megawatt natural gas facility called the
Intermountain Power Project Repowering Project. The natural gas energy
procured will replace electricity procured from a coal fired plant. The
Intermountain Power Project Agency in western Utah operates the project.
The Energy Commission also adopted the Renewables Portfolio Standard
2014-2016 Retail Sellers Procurement Verification Report. This report
provides the results of the Energy Commissionís verification of
Renewables Portfolio Standard claims submitted by retail sellers for
2014 to 2016. After adoption, Energy Commission staff will provide the
final adopted report to the CPUC to complete verification and compliance
findings for retail sellers.
