Expertise in the EMN includes the physical and chemical characteristics renewable gases require to enter existing natural gas grids or to be qualified for energy storage, as well as the quality of hydrogen as a fuel source for long distance transportation.
The Renewable Energy Directive requires the EU to fulfil at least 20 % of its final energy consumption with renewable sources by 2020. However, increasing numbers of decentralised renewable sources can cause a deterioration in the grid’s power quality and demands are increasing for traceable, accurate measurements of power and power quality.
Successful implementation of the new measurement system developed by this project will pave the way for increased adoption of renewable energy across Europe.
Results from the project will be presented at the Final Dissemination Workshop, which is open to all.
Topics to include:
Good Practice Guide entitled ‘Guide for Sampling Power and Power Quality Measurements’ soon to be made available via the project website.
