International Conference on Hydrogen Safety (ICHS2021)


The ninth edition of the biennial International Conference on Hydrogen Safety (ICHS2021) will be taking place in Edinburgh on 21st to 23rd September 2021. Organised by the Scottish Government and HySafe, the event will focus on the overarching theme of ‘Safe Hydrogen for Net Zero’. The conference will present the state-of-the-art, new developments, regulatory and normative aspects and practical implications with regard to hydrogen safety.

The overarching themes for ICHS2021 include Energy & Infrastructure, Mobility & Transport, and Cross-Cutting Topics. As the leading international conference on hydrogen safety, ICHS2021 looks to cover all topics relating to hydrogen and safety, and the call for abstracts is open for papers on experimental studies, theoretical mathematical modelling, safety management, incidents, accidents and near misses.

The ICHS2021 Call for Abstracts has now opened. All contributions to ICHS2021 will be evaluated for their scientific content and relevance to the wider uptake and deployment of safe hydrogen as part of the transition to a low carbon energy system.
