The CHBC’s Light-Duty Vehicle and Infrastructure Initiative is one of four policy committees including committees for Heavy-Duty Vehicles and Infrastructure, Renewable Hydrogen & Climate Change and Pipeline and Fuel Cell Infrastructure, which are focused on providing member-driven education and market intelligence in California. These committees direct CHBC’s advocacy for legislation and regulatory actions that enable the development and commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technology in California, including transportation incentives and zero-emission vehicle and infrastructure programs.
This appointment will help ensure that PowerTap’s leadership is included in driving the growth of hydrogen in the transportation sector toward solutions to the “chicken and egg” problem that exists relative to the deployment of fuel cell technology and hydrogen refueling infrastructure.
“We are pleased to appoint Salim Rahemtulla, a representative of PowerTap, as chairman of this critically important committee. Mr. Rahemtulla’s leadership will help guide the CHBC in its mission to advance the commercialization of our members’ hydrogen and fuel cell technology solutions,” said Bill Zobel, Executive Director of CHBC.
“We are excited for the appointment of a representative of PowerTap to lead this initiative committee and play a role in advocating for the growth and expansion of hydrogen adoption for light-duty vehicles and infrastructure”, said Mr. Raghu Kilambi, CEO of Clean Power.
