New Center for Carbon Measurement to drive UK's low carbon economy
Date:3/26/2012

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) today launches its Centre for Carbon Measurement, which will ensure the UK leads the world in climate modelling, global carbon markets and green technology. Business and government have welcomed the project, highlighting its potential to reduce emissions and stimulate the economy.

The UK, like most nations, is implementing policies to meet emissions reduction targets through clean energy generation, improved efficiency, developing low carbon technology and behavioural change. Scientifically underpinned carbon measurement is critical to achieving all of these. The Centre will provide reliable climate data on which to base policies; support international regulations and voluntary schemes for carbon trading and monitoring; and help to develop and measure the performance of low-carbon technologies.

The Centre has received vocal support from government, academia and large and small business. Organisations that expect to benefit from the centre include E.ON, The National Grid, The National Centre for Atmospheric Science, Coventry University and Surrey Satellites.

The Centre will support UK business, government and academia in three ways. Firstly, it will improve the accuracy and consistency of climate data through improved ground-based and satellite measurement technology and better data analysis. This will feed into climate models to give us a better understanding of the long term impact of climate change and enable governments to develop more focussed policies for mitigation and adaptation.

Secondly, the Centre will develop the underpinning measurement science and technology to support carbon markets and accounting. This will enable comparisons across projects, companies and borders, ensure a fair and stable carbon market and support businesses in reporting, managing and offsetting emissions. London is currently the centre of the carbon market with over 80% of carbon traded there in 2009. De
