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.
Minister of State for Universities and Science
The need for metrology in this area has never been more important. There needs to be a robust scientific foundation of carbon measurement to underpin decision-making if progress is to be made on national and international discussions to address the risk of climate change.
Dr Richard Busby
Environment Manager, E.ON
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:
- The UK's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) bodies are co-hosting a one day workshop that will focus on how SMEs looking to undertake third-party testing can benefit from the EU ETV scheme.
- The Royal Society has published a report called 'Observing the Earth' which highlights the proposed satellite mission TRUTHS as a key part to meeting the challenge of creating a full climate observing system from space.
- An article on the need for new benchmarks to prevent green technology standards from inhibiting new products from reaching the market.
