Association of Global Automakers Push for Hydrogen Infrastructure Support in California

28 May 2013

The Association of Global Automakers and its member companies met with California lawmakers last week to discuss the automotive industry’s impact in the state and to highlight the need to support hydrogen refuelling infrastructure.

Global Automakers and its members are pushing for the passage of the two bills, SB 11 and AB 8, which provide additional funding for the build-out of a hydrogen fuelling infrastructure in California. Currently the bills are pending in both the Assembly and the Senate, while discussions continue between legislators and manufacturers on the legislation.

"Our members continue to invest in technologies to reduce the environmental footprint of their vehicles, but that is only one part of the equation," said Global Automakers' Director of State Relations Gordon Fry . "To get consumers to buy green vehicles, they need to have the refuelling infrastructure necessary to support their purchases."

The Association of Global Automakers represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations.
