Hydrogen Readiness Community Forum

Drive Clean: The Road Ahead for FCEVs and Hydrogen
Community Environmental Council and the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District invite you to a special forum on fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and their fuel, hydrogen. These vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions and are a pillar of the state’s strategy to improve air quality and reduce climate pollution. However, before they can enter the mainstream, a number of barriers need to be cleared.
To begin a conversation around the potential of this emerging clean transportation solution, CEC is hosting a free community forum. The event will include a special panel discussion on the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for hydrogen-fueled transportation in the Central Coast region and greater California. Facilitated by Cameron Gray, CEC’s Transportation & Climate Specialist, the panelists will include:
- Keith Malone, Public Affairs Manager for the California Fuel Cell Partnership
- Ben Ellenberger, Technology & Environmental Assessment Division Manager, Santa Barbara County APCD
- Kiran Srivastava, Program Director, Energy Independence Now
- Rommel Momen, Greater L.A. Area Mirai Manager, Toyota USA
The panel discussion will be followed by an open Question & Answer period. We invite anyone interested to join us for a robust community dialogue about the role of hydrogen and FCEVs in our transportation future.
