California’s Assembly Bill 8 (AB 8) requires the California Air Resources Board (ARB) to assess the size of the current and future Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) fleet annually, based on vehicle registrations with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), auto manufacturer responses to ARB surveys of projected future sales, and current and future hydrogen fuel station locations and capacity. This information informs the State’s decisions for future funding of hydrogen fuel stations, including the number and location of stations as well as minimum technical requirements for those stations. The 2016 Annual Evaluation provides ARB’s latest assessment of California’s on-road fuel cell electric vehicle fleet, auto manufacturer projections for future deployment volumes in California, and progress in development of California’s hydrogen fueling station network. ARB’s analyses and recommendations for new station locations, capacities, and technical capabilities are also discussed in the reports.
