Colorado Hydrogen Fleet Working Group

May 8, 2021
Drive Clean Colorado, Northern Colorado Clean Cities Coalition and the Colorado Hydrogen Network all hold the common goal of advancing clean transportation and sustainable mobility through Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEVs). We are working together to inform fleets of the availability of an array of fuel cell trucks and buses as well as the development status for Hydrogen Fuel Stations.  This Working Group will connect the companies and municipalities with vehicle providers as well as with funding support to encourage the adoption of FCEVs.

ZEVs include both Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs).  Powered by hydrogen derived from renewable electricity, FCEVs benefit consumers seeking similar performance and convenience as the petroleum vehicles that they already own: specifically, fast refueling and range largely independent of cold temperatures, towing, and freight load.  BEVs are better suited for short trips around town to school, work and shopping.

Moving beyond the current market, we recognize that both FCEVs and hydrogen fuel stations (HFSs) must be developed together.  And such is the mission of the Colorado Hydrogen Network.  A key part of building this future market requires simultaneously engaging with both fleet owners (such as those with commercial trucks and buses) and HFS developers in order to coordinate their efforts and investments.

We are in a crucial decade for addressing climate change.  And with such a strong imperative to decarbonize transportation, Colorado is the right place and now is the right time to deploy FCEVs.  Colorado enjoys favorable electricity rates and increased generation from renewable sources.  Consequently, green hydrogen can be priced competitively versus gasoline.  Additionally, Colorado’s cold weather, topography, central location, and recreational demographic speaks well for the benefits inherent to FCEVs.  Recognizing these attributes, the State of Colorado passed the Zero Emission Vehicle Ruling to incentivize automakers to sell FCEVs in the state.   As a result, the Colorado Hydrogen Network stands ready to fulfill its mission by promoting hydrogen fueling alongside future fleet owners of FCEVs.

The Colorado Hydrogen Fleets Working Group consists of the Drive Clean Colorado and Northern Colorado Clean Cities Coalitions plus the Colorado Hydrogen Network.

The Colorado Hydrogen Fleets Working Group is reaching out to businesses and municipalities to inform them of the availability of an array of fuel cell trucks and buses as well as the development status for Hydrogen Fuel Stations.  This Working Group will connect the companies and municipalities with vehicle providers as well as with funding support to encourage the adoption of FCEVs.

  • A comprehensive source for the latest information about FCEV technology, vehicles, and fueling
  • Connecting users with funding sources and grants
  • Connecting users with each other to share information and vehicle servicing
  • Providing safety information for this new technology
