Workshop on hydrogen quality and flow metering for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

Large Fuel Cell Car

11 - 12 September 2019, VSL, Delft, The Netherlands

The project

EMPIR project Metrology for hydrogen vehicles (16ENG01, MetroHyVe) is working to develop methods, standards and calibration facilities to ensure accurate flow metering and fair pricing for customers at refuelling stations, and methods, reference gases and online analysers to provide quality assurance and control of the hydrogen dispensed.These results will support the uptake of low-emission hydrogen vehicles and the growth of Europe’s hydrogen economy by increasing confidence among both manufacturers and consumers.

The workshop

The project will host a two-day workshop that aims to provide good practice to the hydrogen community on the following topics:

  • Flow metering
  • Quality assurance
  • Quality control
  • Hydrogen sampling
  • Fuel cell impurity testing

The workshop will include talks from project partners to introduce the importance of these measurements, where the requirements come from including the relevant standards, and how the measurements should be carried out. Each topic session will include dedicated panel discussions led by key industrial stakeholders.

The workshop is recommended for anyone working directly with hydrogen vehicles or the infrastructure that supports it.

There will be an opportunity to join a poster exhibition where project partners will highlight their deliverables and activities to date. If you would like to show a poster at the workshop, please send an email to gnieuwenkamp@vsl.nl

Registration, programme and further information

Attendance to the workshop is free of charge, but numbers are limited.


This EMPIR project is co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
