A new calibration standard for solid-state lighting

Around 12% of electricity consumption in the world is used for lighting. More efficient systems have the potential of allowing Europe to save up to 34 TWh of electricity by 2030, reducing CO2 emissions by 7 million tonnes per year. Incandescent lights – where electricity flowing through a thin metal filament, such as tungsten, ...

New photometry standards for measurement of solid-state lighting products

Conventionally the calibration of photometric equipment was performed with tungsten filament standard lamps with the standard illuminant A spectrum, which was published by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) in 1931 and was originally designed for use with incandescent lighting products. However, incandescent co...

A new field test standard for hydrogen refuelling stations

Hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) must meet measurement requirements set out by legislation. Standards such as SAE J2601 and OIML R139 are in place to ensure safety at HRS. The former establishes process limits for light duty vehicles (e.g., cars) to ensure that tanks do not overheat or overfill during fuelling, while the latt...

A new flow instrument to support the use of hydrogen as a clean transport fuel

Passenger cars alone account for 25% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. To reach climate neutrality in Europe by 2050 requires this amount to be reduced by 90%. Hydrogen is a clean alternative to petrochemicals that produces only water when used to power fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). To ensure the amount charged to FC...

Developing the technology to support hydrogen as a clean energy fuel

Europe aims to be climate neutral by 2050, achieving this will not only reduce the need for imported energy but also eliminate the use of fossil fuels that drive climate change. Hydrogen is a ‘clean’ energy gas, and its use has been named by the EU as a central pillar for this transition. Regardless of hydrogen’s production me...

Extending the range of European electrical power measurements

Conventionally, most electronic items in Europe operated at 50 Hz, matching the frequency of the domestic power supply. Recently, devices operating at higher frequencies have become prevalent in applications such as wireless power transfer, power converters for photovoltaics, and in industrial applications such as induction hea...
