Safety and Loss Prevention

Webinar: Domestic and Industrial Hydrogen - Relevant Phenomena for Safety

Webinar: Domestic and Industrial Hydrogen - Relevant Phenomena for Safety
  • Date From 31st March 2021
  • Date To 31st March 2021
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 14:00 GMT. Duration: 1 hour.


The fast-developing energy transition, with a target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the next three decades, may include a significant expansion in the use of hydrogen. The roles being considered for hydrogen include energy transportation and storage, land transport, maritime propulsion, domestic heating and ‘hard to de-carbonise’ industry. Even if this is only partially realised, there will be a considerable growth in hydrogen production and utilisation. Hydrogen comes with particular process safety challenges, which need to be understood if public confidence is to be maintained.

This webinar will discuss:

  • Overview of potential applications for hydrogen and why
  • How key properties of hydrogen differ from hydrocarbons
  • What this means for potential hazards and process safety
  • Experimental research at DNV Spadeadam Research & Testing
  • Incidents and public perception

The webinar will be presented by DNV.
