Vision for a European Metrology Network for Energy Gases


As Europe moves towards decarbonising its energy infrastructure, new measurement needs will arise that require collaborative efforts between European National Metrology Institutes and Designated Institutes to tackle. Such measurement needs include flow metering of hydrogen or hydrogen enriched natural gas in the gas grid for billing, quality assurance of hydrogen at refuelling stations and equations of state for carbon dioxide in carbon capture and storage facilities. The European metrology network for energy gases for the first time provides a platform where metrology institutes can work together to develop a harmonised strategy, prioritise new challenges, and share expertise and capabilities to support the European energy gas industry to meet stringent EU targets for climate change and emissions reductions

Funding source: The EMN for Energy Gases is supported by the joint network project ’Support for a European Metrology Network for energy gases’ (18NET01). The project ‘18NET01 Energy Gases’ is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
