On November 13, 2006, the National Hydrogen Association held the workshop, "Hydrogen Energy Technologies - Safety, Installations, and Permitting," in conjunction with the Fuel Cell Seminar. The workshop was a focused ½-day workshop aimed at technical individuals who wanted to learn more about hydrogen energy technologies and the application of codes and standards that relate to them.
The interactive workshop which featured lots of questions from attendees also included the opportunity to handle some portable fuel cell and refueling systems (courtesy of Jadoo) and metal hydride canisters that had been bonfire and overpressure tested. The latter showed that even when brought to failure, hydrogen canisters will safety maintain their structural integrity. The NHA would like to thank our four National Hydrogen Association member experts who presented technical data and lessons learned from real permitting and installation experiences. Their presentations are included below.
