Sacramento—Air Resources Board staff today re-noticed the Clean
Fuels Outlet regulation for consideration by the Board. While
legislation to achieve this goal through the use of incentives is
presently pending in Legislature, the measure will otherwise
ensure the availability of clean alternative fuels necessary for
zero emission vehicles, specifically those powered by hydrogen
fuel cells.  

“We prefer to see an incentive based mechanism, such as that
included in legislation now before the assembly and senate,
ensure the supply of hydrogen for these vehicles,” said Air
Resources Board Chairman Mary D. Nichols. “But we must achieve
our air quality and greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals, and
re-introducing the Clean Fuels Outlet regulation now simply
provides a backstop in the event those measures don’t pass.”

The Advanced Clean Car program, approved by the Board last
January, will drive a shift from gasoline powered vehicles to
those powered by electricity and hydrogen beginning in 2017. The
Clean Fuels Outlet regulation is part of this program, and is
intended to make sure those fuels are readily available as those
vehicles enter the California market in larger numbers. The Clean
Fuels Outlet regulation requires the oil industry to support
hydrogen fueling stations synchronized with arrival of those new

The Advanced Clean Car program is one of a suite of greenhouse
gas emissions reduction programs created under the Global Warming
Solutions Act (AB 32). The goal of AB 32 is to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. The Advanced Clean Car
program will address a large portion of emissions from the
transportation sector, which is responsible for approximately 40
percent of all greenhouse gas emissions in the state.
