May Poll Insights - Certrec Sentinel Newsletter

Hydrogen storage is a key enabling technology for the advancement of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in applications including stationary power, portable power, and transportation. Last month we asked our audience: What is the most important factor when considering hydrogen storage tanks? Overall, 91 percent voted safety while 9 percent voted cost-effectiveness. Storage capacity was the least voted answer at zero percent.

Safety is critical when dealing with hydrogen gas. Hydrogen gas is highly flammable, and leaks can be potentially deadly. For an overview of safety precautions to take when handling, view the Department of Energy’s Hydrogen Safety Program.
