Facilitating Clean Growth

Facilitating clean growthAs the world works towards its ambitious net zero targets, it is important that we have the relevant guidance, standards and infrastructure available to meet these needs. Aligned with the UK Industrial Strategy and several of the key challenges identified within, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory has been working on several projects with partners from all over the world, to facilitate the energy transition

Our Clean Fuels team are currently working on the Metrology for Hydrogen Vehicles (MetroHyVe) project, in collaboration with partners from across Europe. A three-year project which commenced in June 2017, MetroHyVe aims to facilitate the uptake of hydrogen vehicles through solving the current measurement challenges associated with hydrogen vehicle refuelling in order to meet legislative requirements. At present, a number of reports are available to freely download from the MetroHyVe website including a Public report on operating conditions and uncertainty sources of a Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HRS) which we recently contributed to.

As part of the EMPIR NEWGASMET project launched in June 2019, our Clean Fuels team are collaborating with partners to investigate the accuracy of gas flow meter measurements made using commercially available meters already validated for use with natural gas. The purpose of this project is to produce SI-traceable type testing and verification procedures which can be used to demonstrate flow meter accuracy and durability for compliance with the EU Measuring Instruments Directive.

The European Metrology Network (EMN) for Energy Gases provides measurement science expertise to society and industry, bridging the gap between research and end-user. As a leading partner, we recently took part in the European Energy Gas Workshop to discuss and prioritise future energy gas measurement challenges as Europe moves towards decarbonised energy systems. This workshop highlighted the importance of the MetroHyVe and NEWGASMET projects in finding solutions which can drive growth in the clean fuels sector, both for domestic heating and for transport use.

“The move to net zero emissions will require substantial changes to the ways that energy is generated, stored, transported and utilised” commented Head of Clean Fuels, Marc MacDonald. “As custodian of the UK National Flow Standards, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory has a crucial role in providing testing infrastructure and measurement expertise to support the transition to clean fuels”
