The new energy revolution driven by carbon emissions reduction goals is bringing many new challenges, new technology, and application of proven technology in new ways and to expanded scales. There seems to be a race taking place towards low prices that would make large scale export offtake agreements economically viable in comparison to current energy sources. There are also ambitious emission reduction targets set by our politicians, coupled with apparent haste in the industry to abate what is termed the “climate emergency”.

To seasoned safety engineering practitioners, these are warning signs that are precursors to potential major accidents. This presentation provides relevant case studies of previous accidents that have severely affected companies and tarnished entire industries. This is balanced with advice on how the emerging hydrogen and ammonia clean energy industry can leverage knowledge and experience to manage the safety risks to support the sustained growth of this young industry.
