automotive.com: Shell Provides Hydrogen Fuel for City of White Plains and General Motors Vehicles

HOUSTON, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ — Shell Hydrogen LLC and the City of White Plains, New York, today dedicated a hydrogen vehicle fueling facility located in the city’s department of public works yard in downtown White Plains. The Shell Hydrogen facility will produce hydrogen from electricity generated from renewable energy provided through the New York Power Authority.

“The City of White Plains has shown real leadership in cooperating on this project with Shell. White Plains’ successful track record in introducing alternate fuels for city vehicles are a great fit with Shell Hydrogen’s efforts to develop solutions to transportation and energy challenges,” said Phillip Baxley, President of Shell Hydrogen LLC. “This station is another step towards an eventual network of stations serving our customers here in the US and around the world.”

“The opportunity for the City of White Plains to work with Shell Hydrogen on the creation of this Hydrogen Fueling Station is very exciting. It enables White Plains to continue our research and demonstration programming for alternate fuels for which we are recognized throughout the Northeastern region,” said White Plains Mayor Joseph Delfino. “If every one contributes a little of their time, talent and resources, as is the case in this project, we can surely make a difference in reducing air pollution without compromising the use of the automotive transportation system.”

The facility will manufacture and store 30 kilograms of gaseous hydrogen. Since the hydrogen is made on-site, there will be no added fuel deliveries to the site.

This fueling station is also part of a U.S. Department of Energy hydrogen infrastructure program where Shell will provide hydrogen fuel to General Motors fuel cell vehicles in this program. Shell will also provide fuel to other GM FCVs being introduced into the New York City metro area.
