Workshop – Decarbonising the gas grid: measurement challenges and standardisation

2 November, CCMC, Wetenschapsstraat 23, 1040 Brussels, Belgium

and online, 10:00 – 16:00 CET

Workshop introduction

The consortium of EMPIR project Metrology for decarbonising the gas grid (20IND10, Decarb), along with the CEN Standardisation Sector Forum Gas Infrastructure (SFGI), will share the latest developments about gas infrastructure standardisation and the metrology solutions needed to successfully decarbonise the gas grid.

Workshop objectives

The workshop aims to shed light on the critical aspects of transitioning towards a decarbonised gas grid, focusing on measurement techniques, challenges and the essential role of standardisation. Expect key-note speeches of state-of-the-art solutions, and future pathways that underpin this pivotal shift related to metrology and standardisation.

To measure is to know

The Decarb Project aims to address four measurement challenges that the gas industry needs to solve before they can decarbonise the gas grid through introduction of biomethane, hydrogen-enriched natural gas, 100 % hydrogen, and carbon capture and storage (CCS). The project's technical work package leaders will update you on their latest findings related to flow metering, gas analysis, physical properties measurement and leak detection.

The CEN Sector Forum Gas Infrastructure is the European standardisation group driving the energy transition in the gas grid. Keynote speakers will inform you about the industry's standardisation priorities and ongoing work related to (blends of) hydrogen in pipelines.


This workshop is a prime opportunity for professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts in the energy sector to gain valuable insights, connect with experts, and contribute to the advancement of decarbonisation efforts within gas infrastructure metrology and standardisation.

Registration is mandatory but free of charge.
