About the Event

Hydrogen fuelling stations are some of the most public-facing hydrogen applications in the industry and, along with fuel cell electric vehicles, will be the first hydrogen application that many people will experience firsthand. As an emerging technology, it is important to not only ensure that public-facing hydrogen infrastructure has the right safety equipment, but also that the people who use it have the information to feel safe while doing so. This presentation aims to give an overview of the safety systems used to help protect members of the public using hydrogen fuelling stations as well as the information used to help educate the people using this equipment.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand basics of the hydrogen value chain and what parts are seen by the public
  • Understand some of the hazards involved with hydrogen refuelling stations
  • Understand some of the safety systems put in place to mitigate hazards

Target Audience

Engineers and geoscientists looking to learn more about hazards in the hydrogen industry and how the public interacts with the hydrogen value chain.
