Enabling the Energy Transition

Enabling the Energy Transition

Enabling the energy transitionTo realise the transition to a net-zero economy, collaboration and innovation are vital. Aligned with the UK Industrial Strategy, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is working on several collaborative projects to facilitate clean growth and the future of mobility, two of the Grand Challenges identified by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

A key barrier to realising the ambitions of the energy transition is financial viability. How do we make the transition to cleaner fuels such as hydrogen and CCUS more attractive to investment? There is no one answer; a mixture of policy and incentives are needed to aid deployment at scale to reduce costs, alongside the development of new business models for trade.

A vital requirement to support these newly emerging business models is the need for flow metrology.
As the UK’s Designated Institute for Flow and Density Measurement, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory has a key role to play in addressing the current challenges associated with flow measurement, to support the energy transition. The current lack of traceability will delay effective standardisation and regulation of trading through these new business models, from production to end-users.

With National Measurement System (NMS) partners at NPL, we are planning an event for autumn this year: Enabling carbon capture, usage and storage: Measurement needs and solutions . This collaborative Workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to discuss any current or future challenges that may require a measurement solution, as well as a chance to highlight the capabilities of the NMS that could assist with addressing measurement needs for CCUS.

Outputs from the workshop will include recommendations provided by attendees that will direct future metrology research, with the aim of facilitating the success of CCUS deployment in the UK and wider.
