The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL brings together academic and business partners with government and is designed to ensure that we can have confidence in the measurements we need to improve our understanding of the global climate, deliver policies for mitigating climate change, and accelerate the development of low carbon technologies.

I would like to take this opportunity to record National Grid's commitment and support to the Centre. Addressing climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing our society and industry.
Chief Executive, National Grid
Global climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing policy makers and industry today. Mitigation of and adaptation to climate change will require coordination and collaboration between science, business and governments.
The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL will build on NPL's capability, working with partners to address the following three areas:
- Volunteers from NPL demonstrated Earth observation and spectroscopy at this year's Cheltenham Science Festival.
- Jane Burston discusses the challenges and opportunities of big data in Earth observation.
- The Centre for Carbon Measurement exhibited a wide range of its research areas with nine labs open and dozens of scientists on hand to explain their research.
