NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Center for Hydrogen Safety (CHS) – the global authority on hydrogen safety and training – announced Jackson, Mississippi-based Hy Stor Energy as the latest addition to its roster of membership organizations. Hy Stor Energy is developing and advancing renewable hydrogen production, storage, and delivery at scale in the United States.

“Hy Stor Energy’s understanding of the vital role hydrogen safety plays in global decarbonization and the greater energy transition makes them a powerful addition to our community,” said Nick Barilo, executive director, CHS. “We look forward to Hy Stor’s contributions to CHS and seeing their impact on the global energy transition.”

CHS facilitates member collaboration to address hydrogen safety issues and arm stakeholders and users with reliable, consistent safety information. As a member of CHS, Hy Stor Energy will join a specialized Working Group tasked to create valuable resources to educate students and professors on the safe use of hydrogen in the academic environment. Hy Stor Energy strengthens an already impressive CHS community of more than 70 world-leading organizations including bp, Equinor, and CF Industries.

Hy Stor Energy is creating a model for producing, storing, and delivering long-term carbon-free energy, thus contributing to reliability and resilience in an increasingly fossil-free world.

“We are proud to join CHS and collaborate with the industry to create best practices for hydrogen storage and safety,” said Laura L. Luce, CEO of Hy Stor Energy. “We are accelerating the U.S. renewable hydrogen economy through the development of hydrogen hubs across the country. We are creating opportunities for materials testing, hydrogen storage, and end-use application safety testing as well as developing a working lab focused on advancing commercial scale safety testing for the aviation, maritime/port operations, and heavy-duty transport industries.”

Established in 2018, CHS is a technical community within the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. CHS member benefits include access to conferences and working groups, safety guidance, training and workshops, and a global forum to address emerging issues and impact technical solutions.
