Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are one of the most promising technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from heavy-duty vehicles (e.g., trucks and buses). Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles face a number of barriers, including lack of an adequate network of hydrogen fueling stations. The most important requirements for hydrogen fueling stations are the safety standards codified in the National Fire Protection Association 2, Hydrogen Technologies Code (“NFPA 2”). The code provides fundamental safeguards for, among other things, handling liquid and gaseous hydrogen; preventing explosions; and safe design and operation of hydrogen fueling facilities, hydrogen fuel cell power systems and hydrogen generation systems. This code is, therefore, a municipal ordinance that adopts NFPA 2. It is based on NFPA 2, Annex C, Sample Ordinance Adopting NFPA 2. The model provides for enforcement through a misdemeanor with fines and imprisonment, and authorizes legal proceedings to correct violations. The model includes provisions for local amendments, repeal of conflicting ordinances, publishing the ordinance according to the jurisdiction’s procedural requirements, severability, and an effective date.
