ZEV Station Progress
California has made significant strides in developing ZEV infrastructure. Please refer to our Hydrogen Station Permitting Guidebook for information and best practices for hydrogen station development.
Plug-in Electric Vehicle Charger Progress
The State of California is striving to enable the deployment of 250,000 chargers by 2025 to support at least 1.3 million plug-in electric vehicles (including full battery-electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles). This target includes both public and limited access private chargers (typically found in workplaces and multi-unit dwellings), but does not include chargers in single family homes.
The link below pulls data on public level 2 and direct current fast chargers from the Please refer to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC). GO-Biz and agency partners are working the AFDC to include private charger counts in the march to 250,000. If you have chargers to add to the count, please submit them through the AFDC webform.

Hydrogen Station Progress
Similar to charging, the State of California aims to have 200 hydrogen fueling stations by 2025 to enable at least 200,000 hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. The California Fuel Cell Partnership Map provides a dynamic view of the network, and the images below offer a snapshot into the station development process.
The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) was created by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. to serve as the State of California's leader for job growth and economic development efforts. GO-Biz partnered with the State's Information Technology Leadership Academy 22 to create the California Business Portal.
