  • Metrology for hydrogen advanced storage solutions
  • Metrology for hydrogen vehicles 2
  • High throughput metrology for nanowire energy harvesting devices
  • Metrology of magnetic losses in electrical steel sheets for high-efficiency energy conversion
  • Metrology for enhanced reliability and efficiency of wind energy systems
  • Traceable mechanical and electrical power measurement for efficiency determination of wind turbines
  • New metrological methods for biofuel materials analysis


  • Implementation of radon metrology for the analysis for the atmospheric budget of greenhouse gases and radiation protection in the environment
  • Remote and real-time optical detection of alpha-emitting radionuclides in the environment
  • Metrology for low-frequency sound and vibration
  • Metrology for aerosol optical properties
  • Stable isotope metrology to enable climate action and regulation
