ZEV Station awarded
$4M CEC Grant
Press Release: June 1st, 2023
ZEV Station awarded $4M CEC Grant for a Multimodal MD/HD Hydrogen Station and $1.6M CEC Grant for Rural EV Charging
CEC awards ZEV Station with two grants: innovative medium/heavy duty hydrogen fueling and rural EV Charging.
PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — ZEV Stations, Co. (“ZEV Station”), a B-Corporation with a novel approach to bring high-throughput hydrogen fueling and electric charging at the same location, received a Notice of Proposed Award (NOPA) for $4 million funding grant by the California Energy Commission (CEC) to design, build and test a first-of-its-kind multimodal medium and heavy-duty hydrogen station under the GFO-22-502 – “Innovative Hydrogen Refueling Solutions for Heavy Transport” Solicitation. The first scale station will serve both fleet vehicles and public fueling off the I-10 highway in Palm Springs.
When completed, the station will be capable of dispensing up to 5 tons per day of green hydrogen for Class 6-8 MD/HD vehicles. The station initially will be a testbed for hydrogen fast fueling on par with diesel fueling (targeting 8-10kg/min) to serve as a basis for a rollout. The first phase is planned to be gaseous hydrogen fueling (35MPa & 70MPa) and later subcooled liquid hydrogen (sLH2) fueling will be added.
ZEV Station, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), plans to develop optimum standards and evaluate a scalable platform for HD hydrogen fueling through simulations and correlation with real-world fueling station data.
This is the second CEC award received by ZEV Station following the $1.6M NOPA announcement in August 2022, for GFO-21-604 – “Clean Transportation Program Rural Electric Vehicle (REV) Charging” to support ZEV Station’s future site with EV fast charging up to 350kW. Both projects strive to support California’s goal to achieve NetZero.
“We are honored to receive the grants from the CEC. With LD & HD fossil fuel vehicle sales ending in California by 2036, we see a clear path that EV Charging & hydrogen together will replace petroleum.”— Jesse Schneider, CEO/ CTO ZEV Station
About ZEV Station
ZEV Station, with main offices in Palm Springs California, is on a mission to remove the vehicle from the carbon equation™ with ultra-fast, carbon-free fueling for all Zero Emission Vehicles off the highway. To drive this conversion, ZEV Station is combining fast electric vehicle charging with high throughput hydrogen dispensing . ZEV Station has deployed a test EV Class 6 ZEV fleet with FedEx ISPs with DC Fast Chargers. ZEV Station’s goal is to bridge the gap between two transportation megatrends- electric and hydrogen for heavy duty transport – to accelerate the replacement of petroleum.
