The station offers both Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasoline and hydrogen and will be the company’s fourth demonstration station in the region.

Shell Alternative Energies North America commercial manager Matias Sanchez Cane has called for enhanced cooperation amongst fuel providers, car markers, equipment suppliers and manufacturers to reduce costs and achieve commercial success of hydrogen stations.

"Demonstration hydrogen filling stations allow us to evaluate a range of different technologies and learn valuable lessons about costs, consumer behavior and how to dispense it efficiently to different vehicles," added Sanchez Cane.

Shell opened its first integrated gasoline/hydrogen station in California in 2008 and the first pipeline-fed hydrogen fueling station in Torrance in 2011.
