Underground storage possibilities for hydrogen. 
A group of scientists at the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories has assessed the potential for large-scale seasonal underground hydrogen storage (UHS) in geological formations in Canada.

Interested? Business opportunities for the hydrogen economy professional group.

Hm, that's interesting and the first I've heard of this type of plan. What would be the safety concerns, if any, of this type of storage? Are the hydrogen safety concerns you sometimes hear about more focused on being stored at high pressure and so a lower pressure underground storage option may not have these same types of risks?

Incisive comment as ever Matt.  HSE will be top priority and funnily enough I wass involved in delivering a hydrogen HSE course to a utility this week.
