Permitting and Community Engagement Resource

General Tips

Have a broad group of people involved from the start. Make sure the planning department, fire department, permitters, local or state hazardous response team, and community members are involved in the entire planning process.

Start with an informal meeting to address the following:

  • What are your experience levels with hydrogen technology?
  • What type of hydrogen technology are you planning to implement?
  • What goals or outcomes will be achieved by implementing hydrogen in this community?
  • How are responsibilities equally distributed amongst all involved?

Reach out to a community that has previously implemented hydrogen infrastructure and share knowledge.

Before starting to plan for any type of hydrogen technology, it is important to ensure everyone involved in the planning process is educated on the basics of hydrogen technology.


Best Practices

Develop a thorough understanding of hydrogen and hydrogen technologies.

Ensure educational materials are widely accessible via local webpages, workshops, community events, etc.

It is crucial that all stakeholders involved are educated on hydrogen safety to establish an effective safety culture. 


Best Practices

Require hydrogen safety training for fire departments and potentially adjacent towns’ fire departments, depending on the scale of the project.

Safety officials and planners should tour existing hydrogen facilities, if possible.
