IPHE RCS Working Group and HySafe signed Memorandum of Understanding

The IPHE RCS Working Group and HySafe intend to collaborate on hydrogen safety, regulations codes and standards and awareness via common workshops, information exchange and further common actions like benchmarks and projects coordination. To this end a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed.

The first successful measure under this agreement was the common organisation of a workshop dedicated to the quite sensitive issue of “Tunnel Safety of Hydrogen Vehicles and Transport”. The workshop was held in the morning of September 18 in Buxtom, UK in advance to the LH2 workshop the PRESLHY project (www.preslhy.eu).

The related presentations will be published soon.

HIAD 2.0 – free access to the renewed hydrogen incident and accident database

With almost 300 hydrogen events –  accidents, incidents and near misses –  collected in a database, HIAD was one of the main results of the NoE HySafe (2004-2009) and still represents one of the largest collections for hydrogen specific data.

With support of the FCH 2 JU JRC has updated the database, gave it new user interfaces and major release number (2.) and made it opened it for free access.

Just give HIAD 2.0 a try: https://odin.jrc.ec.europa.eu/giada/

Preparations for the Research Priorities Workshop 2018, September 18-20, 2018 in Buxton, UK on the way

The 2018 update of the research priorities will be done at the HSL premises in Buxton, UK. HySafe thanks HSL for hosting this important event.

The draft agenda including satellite meeting for ICHS2019 and HySafe:

 

Call for Abstract for ICHS2019 issued

All interested contributors to the unique hydrogen safety event, the International Conference for Hydrogen Safety ICHS, which will be organised next year 24 to 26 September in Adelaide, Australia, are invited to submit a short abstract via www.ichs2019.com (menu item “ABSTRACT SUBMISSION”).

The deadline for submitting an abstract is 31 of December 2018. So enough time to become active 😉

 

Slow but steady wins the race! Research priorities published!

The report of the last Research Priorities Workshop, organised commonly by JRC, US DOE and HySafe in fall 2016 in Petten, The Netherlands, has been finalised and published via the JRC print services. After a preliminary presentation by Jay Keller at the ICHS2017 in Hamburg, the full document provides a detailed reference for prioritised research topics in the field of hydrogen safety.

The electronic version is also available for download directly here: Report_RPW 2016 2018-03-20 final

BTW, if you want to contribute to the next version of this document, reserve third week in September. The 2018 version of the workshop will be organised in Buxton, UK in the premises of HSL.
