‘Energy for the future’: symposium gives inspiring input to the metrology community

EURAMET's scientific symposium's provide a great opportunity for the measurement community to exchange thoughts and views with experts from other fields. This year's symposium on 'Energy for the future' took place on Thursday 26 May 2016 in Oslo, Norway.

More than 80 participants listened to the inspiring input of four top-class speakers: Josefine Selj and Helge Thoresen from the Norwegian Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) and Albert Dalhuijsen and Gert Rietveld from the Dutch National Metrology Institute (VSL).

In her talk 'Solar cell technology - current status and challenges' Josefine gave an overview on recent developments and provided facts and clarified myths within the solar cell technology. Helge focussed on the measurements needed for nuclear research and development in his talk 'The Halden Reactor Project - Instruments and Measurements for Nuclear Research and Development'.

The next two talks focussed on some of the research being carried out within EURAMET's European Metrology Research Programmes (EMRP and EMPIR). An insight on 'European Metrology Research on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)' was provided by Albert where he described the metrological framework that has been developed for LNG, which is a strategic alternative for pipeline gas and a clean and attractive fuel for application in the transport sector. Gert focussed on 'European Metrology Research on Electrical Grids supporting the Energy Transition' and explained that adding intelligence and additional monitoring to the grids is crucial to ensure the reliability of the future energy supply.

The symposium is traditionally held during EURAMET's General Assembly week and provides attendees insights into the latest scientific developments of a specific topic. The set-up of the symposium offered possibilities for lively discussions between the audience and the speakers and possible fields and actions for collaboration were identified. The event was chaired by Hans Arne Frøystein from Justervesenet (JV), the Norwegian National Metrology Institute.
