Alignment to SRA/DS
Major Item: Safety
How is “Safety” addressed ?
Integration
Identification of relevant knowledge gaps
Developing commonly accepted, scientifically
based view / knowledge on safety relevant
phenomena
Joining of experience (e.g. via database WP5 HIAD) of
H2; Information Exchange
Support
By development of Guidelines
By offering safety reviews
Of RC&S activities by providing information addressing
knowledge gaps
By active participation in other H2/FC projects

Major Item: Safety
Example: IP InsHyde
Describe InsHyde results under safety
relevance and SRA compliance
Relates to decentralised production, storage
Technology Platform Operation Review Days, Brussels 8th-9th December 2005
Alignment to SRA/DS
Major Item: Safety
Example: IP InsHyde
 2.1 (Decentralized) Production and 2.3 Stationary Applications
 2.6.3.2.5 Developing codes, standards and regulatory
instruments
Context :
Large leaks caused by major system failure : very low probability =>
zoning, detection, prevention, passive building design
Minor leaks (< 1 g/sec) : more foreseeable => risks in confinement ?
Objectives :
Investigation of realistic non-catastrophic releases in (partially) confined
areas
System risk assessment and basis for risk control
Ventilation performance and layout
Detection and Buildings (garages, tunnels, etc) layout
Zone classification and choice of electrical equipment
Best practices  regulatory and standards framework for indoor H2
systems)
Technology Platform Operation Review Days, Brussels 8th-9th December 2005
Alignment to SRA/DS
Major Item: Safety
Example: IP HyTunnel
 2.2 Distribution and 2.4 Transportation (application)
 2.6.3.2.5 Developing codes, standards and regulatory
instruments
Current safety requirements for road tunnels consider air
quality, fire and smoke spread
Natural and/or forced ventilation
CO, video etc. detection
Means of escape and safety refuges
But, do H2 vehicles pose additional hazards?
If so, then need to
Update design guidance for new tunnels
Establish improvements to be made on existing tunnels
Amend regulations for old and new tunnels

Major Item: Public Awareness
How is “Public Awareness”
addressed ?
Indirectly
Via high level “safety culture”
Via (academic) teaching
Openness of NoE activities
….
Participation
PA workshops of the HFP
Conference “Communication of Scientific Results”
….
