Existing law requires the California Energy Commission (CEC), in collaboration with the State Air Resources Board (ARB), the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and other relevant stakeholders, to annually gather from state agencies specified entities’ fleet data for on-road and off-road vehicles in the medium- and heavy-duty sectors, including information that would allow an electrical corporation or local publicly owned electric utility to estimate the total anticipated charging capacity at each fleet location, and share that data with electrical corporations and local publicly owned electric utilities to help inform electrical grid planning efforts. Existing law prohibits electrical corporations and local publicly owned electric utilities from disclosing that data to third parties.
This bill would require the CEC to also gather aggregated information that would allow the public sector to estimate the total anticipated hydrogen fueling capacity at each fleet location. The bill would require the CEC to share the aggregated data with developers of publicly available hydrogen fueling stations and would prohibit the developer of a publicly available hydrogen fueling station from disclosing that data to third parties.
