Strategic Agenda of EMN Energy Gases

Improving reliability in the measurement of energy gases


We are facing an energy transition where new energy gases enter the market at an unprecedented pace. This transition is also accelerated by countries that wish to strengthen their energy resilience to tackle the existing energy crisis in Europe and meet the commitments of the Paris Agreement.

The challenge for the metrology community is to facilitate this transition and to be ready, when the industry, grid operators and regulatory bodies need reliable and comparable data and therefore metrological services for a decarbonised gas market.

EURAMET´s European Metrology Network for Energy Gases supports this sustainable transition.

Vision & Mission


Our Vision

To enable all countries within Europe to access the measurement tools they require to support their energy gas industries including services, products, guidance, and expertise.

Our Mission

To provide the world’s leading metrology network comprising experts in the field of measurement science to drive forward innovation and to accelerate decarbonisation and emissions reductions within the energy gas industry in Europe.


Measures of success

We bring clear direction in our strategy by defining four areas where we want to succeed. These represent for us the biggest opportunities for engagement and differentiation by

  • Becoming the preferred partner for energy gas measurement research by understanding the needs of our key stakeholders and promoting a long-term dialogue to co-create the strategic research agenda on energy gas measurements.
  • Providing access to a large portfolio of coordinated national metrology capabilities, by joining National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) to solve challenges defined by our stakeholders.
  • Facilitating research to improve measurement capabilities of European metrology Institutes (NMIs/DIs) to meet the emerging industry needs and develop services of the future.
  • Boosting the uptake of our results and knowledge through construction of a knowledge centre for metrology for energy gases.


We implement our strategy through coordination of national and European actions that will enable European industry to succeed through improved reliability and interoperability of energy gases measurements.

Joint research on metrology for energy gases: realisation of measurement methods and standards, measurement capabilities and facilities, scientific excellence and support to standardisation. Research on energy gases metrology has been supported by the European Metrology Research Programmes and now in the European Partnership on Metrology.

Coordination of national metrology institutes: leveraging resources of European NMIs and DIs, maintaining top-level national standards and fit-for-purpose services. EMN Energy Gases coordinates the development of new measurement capabilities and dedicated services to meet the rapidly growing needs.
