Energy Transition: Measurement Needs for Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage


This latest report describes the potential for CCUS as an important technology during the UK’s energy transition and focuses on the role that metrology (the science of measurement) could play in supporting its deployment. High priority measurement needs and challenges identified within this report include:

  • Measuring and comparing the efficiency of different capture techniques and configurations to provide confidence in investments into technologies;
  • Improving equations of state to support the development of accurate models used for controlling operational conditions;
  • Improving CO2 flow measurement to support fiscal and financial metering, as well as process control, and;
  • Improving the understanding and validation of dispersion models for emitted CO2 including plume migration, to support safety assessment.
