Announced on Tuesday (May 31), the Spanish company has joined the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC), with hopes of benefitting from and adding to the well-established hydrogen sector in California, US.

With more than 400 hydrogen trailers on European and American roads, Calvera Group has built more than 15 hydrogen refuelling stations, with current hydrogen transport truck projects in California.

Calvera will now contribute to CHBC’s aims of promoting the commercialisation of hydrogen and fuel cell-based systems in the energy and transport sector, to contribute decarbonisation goals.

CHBC represents the hydrogen sector, bringing together companies, research centres, government agencies, action groups, and educational institutions.

Rafael Calvera, Vice-President of Calvera Group, said, “We are very proud to be part of a leading association in hydrogen such as the California Hydrogen Business Council, since it will undoubtedly help us to be more present in the US, where we are already supplying cutting-edge technology equipment.”

In April last year (2021), Calvera announced it would support the upscaling of hydrogen projects to meet Spain’s ‘Green Hydrogen Roadmap’ which was approved in October 2020.

North American Hydrogen Summit  

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
