In the transition to a low-carbon energy economy, renewable power generation is pivotal, but reliable energy provision requires long-term, sustainable energy storage solutions. Ammonia’s relatively high energy density, existing global infrastructure, and established manufacturing and distribution system make it an attractive alternative energy carrier. However, as new applications emerge, thorough risk assessments and control measures are necessary to minimize health and environmental risks. This work evaluates the safety considerations associated with ammonia as a fuel for end use applications, including industry and transportation. Established practices offer insights, yet novel applications require dedicated safety strategies. Ammonia’s potential hinges on comprehensive risk management, adhering to standards, and fostering a safety culture for a sustainable energy future.
