Hazards & Risks Associated With Alternate Energy Systems

The commercialization of alternative energy systems is becoming increasingly important to the Loss Prevention community as they introduce new hazards and risks that we must address. Systems involving renewable energy sources, fuel cells, compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, hydrogen, atomic energy and other relatively new technologies will compete with the traditional energy sources, coal, oil and water. In paving the way for complete commercialization of these newer technologies, an understanding of the hazards and risks must be developed. This session invites new research, tools and methods that identify, characterize, and manage the hazards and risks associated with the design and operation of alternative energy systems.
