Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure

This page last reviewed July 20, 2016

Infrastructure is essential for the successful deployment of zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) in California. The availability of electric vehicle charging and hydrogen fueling infrastructure in California continues to expand through industry and California government policies and programs that prepare the state for increasing numbers of ZEVs. Here you will find information about infrastructure progress and programs in California.

By the end of 2017, California is expected to have 50 hydrogen fueling stations open to the public.

The California Fuel Cell Partnership's (CaFCP) hydrogen fueling station map provides details and status of all hydrogen fueling stations in the State.

Their California Road Map describes the infrastructure that will be needed to successfully launch the commercial fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) market.

Under AB 8, ARB annually reports on an evaluation of the deployment of Fuel Cell EVs and hydrogen fueling stations in CA. In order to identify areas of greatest need for fueling infrastructure, ARB has developed the CA Hydrogen Infrastructure Tool (CHIT).

The California Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) Collaborative works to prepare the state for the deployment of PEVs.

California's PEV Resource Center provides extensive resources about PEVs, including charging information.

The Governor's Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Action Plan outlines State strategies to increase ZEV infrastructure and prepare California for ZEVs.

ARB is evaluating public and workplace charging infrastructure to find models that work best for increasing the purchase and use of PEVs, as well as increasing the use of clean energy sources for transportation.
