Fire Protection Research Foundation report: "Research Needs in Support of Hydrogen Safety Standards"
Author: Hydrogen Research Advisory Council
Date of issue: April 2008


In 2007, The National Renewable Energy Laboratory of the Department of Energy contracted with the National Fire Protection Association to establish a Hydrogen Research Advisory Council under the umbrella of the Fire Protection Research Foundation to assist NFPA technical committees in establishing research needs to inform the technical bases for the safety requirements in NFPA 2, NFPA 52, NFPA 55, and other relevant standards. The purpose of the group is to: (i) identify and evaluate research needed to support the development of hydrogen safety requirements in the NFPA codes; and (ii) make recommendations on research projects that need to be completed to support these code changes. This report presents the results of the Council’s work during 2007-2008.
