First impact report on Metrology for Energy projects

A new report outlines the key technical achievements and early impacts of the first group of projects completed under the EMRP Energy theme.

The report explores the new measurement capabilities developed as a result of the collaborations within the Energy projects. Thirty-nine metrology research groups from across Europe came together with academia and industry to establish the measurement infrastructure needed to support Europe's sustainable energy goals. They focussed on supporting the introduction of sustainable energy into Europe's energy mix, accelerating uptake of low carbon technologies and improving the efficiency and security of the existing energy infrastructure.

In addition to overcoming key challenges in measurement science, project partners worked closely with end-users to ensure the research outputs met their needs. The report summarises the measurement challenges and highlights key technical achievements and early examples of the impact generated illustrating the successful uptake of new knowledge and skills across the energy sector. Case studies focus more closely on the benefits already being delivered to industry and society.

The nine projects were the first to be carried out as part of the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP), which combines the knowledge, expertise and facilities of Europe's measurement community to address global challenges in areas such as energy, environment and health.
