Safe Net Zero - August round up

There’s just under a month to go to the on-line International Conference for Hydrogen Safety (ICHS2021), the leading technical event for hydrogen safety research and development, hosted by the International Association for Hydrogen Safety (HySafe) and the Scottish Government.

Earlier this month, the UK Hydrogen Strategy was launched, which identified low-carbon hydrogen as a key element in the government’s plan to build back better with a cleaner, greener energy system.

In his introduction, the Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, The Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, identified the need to fully understand the costs around hydrogen, its safety where it is being used in new ways and just how far it can contribute to reducing our emissions.

ICHS2021 brings together the hydrogen safety community for the 9th time and will be a truly international event. The conference programme features plenary presentations by leaders in hydrogen from across the globe as well as 139 refereed papers from the most eminent hydrogen safety experts within government, research organisations, industry and academia.

Commenting on HSE’s involvement in the event, Stuart Hawksworth, who heads HSE’s Centre for Energy and is also the current president of HySafe, said:

‘Understanding how to safely employ hydrogen in novel applications is key to its success and acceptance by society as an energy vector to help deliver a safe net zero. HSE has been working on hydrogen safety for over 20 years, and events like ICHS are a valuable platform for us to share our knowledge, learn from others and build effective relationships within the hydrogen ecosystem.

I’d encourage anyone with an interest in hydrogen safety, to get involved. By working together and building in safety, we’ll stand the greatest chance of getting things right first time.’
