Working together with other members of the California Fuel Cell Partnership, Honda was part of a groundbreaking in late April for its state-of-the-art headquarters facility in West Sacramento. The facility will house fuel cell electric vehicles and a hydrogen refueling station and will serve as an operations base for executing the CFCP goals of demonstrating fuel cell technology and alternative fuel infrastructure over the next four years. The 55,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is expected to open by the end of the year.

Groundbreaking festivities included fuel cell technology demonstrations and exhibits.

"This new partnership is pursuing practical, affordable and environmentally friendly transportation solutions for California and the world," said Ben Knight, vice president of Honda research and development. "Honda is working together with other CFCP partners to provide practical transportation solutions to Californians."
