The European Metrology Network (EMN) - SAVE THE DATE

EMN for Energy Gases Launch official opening event on 17 June 2019 (VSL, Delft the Netherlands)


The European Metrology Network (EMN) for Energy Gases provides measurement science expertise to society and industry to support the implementation of the energy transition to renewable gaseous fuels.

The robustness of the measurements performed to address the challenges caused by the introduction of new energy gases and by the fluctuations in renewable energy supply and demand is often compromised by a lack of traceable standards and by the absence of appropriate quality control, standardisation and procedures.

For example, setting physical and chemical specifications for renewable gases to enter existing natural gas grids or to be qualified for energy storage, assessing the quality and safety of hydrogen as a fuel for long distance transportation or ensuring reliable measurement of Liquified Natural Gas for custody transfer are urgent dilemmas.

By bridging the gap between research and end-user communities, and acting as a single point of contact for measurement science activities, the EMN for Energy Gases will facilitate a safe, reliable, and diverse energy network for the future.

This event targets energy gas producers and distributors, manufacturing industry, research and testing groups, regulatory bodies and policy makers that are dealing with the uncertainties of the energy transition and that need solutions to their new measurement challenges.



The official opening of the EMN will take place on 17 June 2019 at VSL, in Delft, the Netherlands.
