Work package 7

Safety assessment

This is a key work package of the Hy4Heat programme. It will focus on assessing the safe use of hydrogen gas in domestic properties and buildings. This will include gas leakage accumulation and ventilation of gas releases in different enclosed spaces within a typical domestic property.

Experimental testing will be undertaken to support the safety assessment. Additionally information from GDNOs is being collated to support this work. This information will then feed into the quantitative risk assessment (QRA) and consequence model to support the safety assessment.


We’ll be updating this section with more information as the programme progresses
