CHBC's 2017 California Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Summit: September 25-27, Sacramento

On September 25 and 26, 2017, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) will return to Sacramento for its fifth annual California Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Summit. Taking place at the at the California Environmental Protection Agency's headquarters, this signature event of the CHBC continues a dialogue between government agencies and businesses to address opportunities and challenges in key environmental, business and market areas. 

This Summit is being held at a pivotal time for hydrogen and fuel cells. Markets like forklift trucks and backup power for telecommunications are growing, stationary power and energy storage projects are operating and under development, and fuel cell vehicles and buses can be seen in increasing numbers on California roads. There is unprecedented attention and activity to the use of these technologies to help clean California ports, and yet there are challenges to achieving the desired benefits.  Challenges remain in building the necessary hydrogen infrastructure, financing projects, building sustainable supply chains for the manufacture and servicing of equipment, overcoming regulatory and permitting barriers for energy storage and hydrogen fueling, and educating the public. These topics and more will be covered during the Summit, and we encourage you to attend, connect with business and government leaders from around the country, and share the vision of how this industry can address state environmental, energy and business goals and revolutionize our state's portfolio of energy solutions.

The Summit will be followed by a Member Day for California Hydrogen Business Council member committees and Sector Action Groups on September 27.

We hope to see you there. If you have any questions, please email Emanuel Wagner at or Vera Medici at
