Hydrogen Fueling Station Readiness

Hydrogen fueling stations are becoming increasingly common in California, serving both passenger and commercial vehicles. They operate under robust codes and standards, with approval from local building, planning and fire officials.

Please refer to our Hydrogen Station Permitting Guidebook for information and best practices for hydrogen station development. The California Fuel Cell Partnership also has a Hydrogen Refueling Station Buyer’s Guide.

For more information on hydrogen station permitting, please click the video thumbnail to watch the GO-Biz presentation from our ZEV Permitting Workshop at the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) from March 2020.

The State of California aims to have 200 hydrogen refueling stations by 2025. The map below displays the total number of hydrogen refueling stations open and planned across California. It is updated quarterly as part of the California Energy Commission Zero Emission Vehicle and Infrastructure Statistics dashboard.

If you have hydrogen refueling stations to add to the count, please submit them through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) webform.

If you are looking for a refueling station near you, or if you want to identify refueling stations for your next road trip, you can utilize the AFDC Station Locator, the California Fuel Cell Partnership Map, or a variety of other hydrogen refueling station map applications.
