In Europe there are many research activities in the field of hydrogen safety. These activities are heterogeneous, fragmented, and not well connected. Most of the experience and knowledge is coming from nuclear safety, from gas and oil and from aerospace industries.
The largest amounts of hydrogen are used safely in chemical industries in a professional environment with specially educated staff.
However, experience with hydrogen in a private environment is lacking completely.
Therefore the EC is supporting the integration of the research activities with the help of a new instrument, the Network of Excellence (NoE).
The NoE HySafe should provide an integrated harmonised scientific basis for the safe introduction of hydrogen as an energy carrier, and shall contribute to the public awareness by generating an excellent safety culture.
