EMN for Clean Energy

Tackling climate change is one of the major challenges the world currently faces. The EU developed the European Green Deal which encompasses a range of proposals to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. An essential part of reaching this goal is the switch to renewable energy sources, as traditional energy sources such as coal and oil result in high greenhouse gas emissions.

European Metrology Networks (EMNs) were established to support the development of the metrological infrastructure in Europe. They develop research strategies based on stakeholder needs and build pan-European collaboration between industry and academia. The EMN for Clean Energy focuses on research related to the generation, storage, conversion, and utilisation of renewable energy sources. In the early stages, the EMN will concentrate on the metrology related to the generation and utilisation of solar and wind energy, efficiency of use, and photovoltaic, wind power and temporary energy storage with electrical batteries.

The EMN for Clean Energy complements the work of the EMNs for Smart Electricity Grids and Energy Gases. The EMN for Clean Energy will initially focus on developing the metrological framework for generating and utilising renewable energy sources, as well as support future European Green Deal Calls.
