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

veloping fit-for-purpose measurement capabilities will be important to the long term success of emissions trading and offsetting schemes and assuring the UK's place as the global centre of carbon markets.

Thirdly, the Centre will provide access to the best measurement techniques for developers of low carbon technology, allowing scientific validation of their performance and thereby giving confidence to investors and buyers. Such support is key to commercialising advances in areas such as energy efficient technology, fuel cells, photovoltaics and offshore renewables.

The type of projects already in the pipeline for the Centre include: reducing uncertainties in climate data; providing technical input to guidance for companies reporting climate impact; detecting and quantifying leaks from Carbon Capture and Storage demonstrators; and providing a scientifically robust framework for estimating carbon savings from smart grids and large-scale building energy efficiency projects.

The Centre will provide business, government and academia with access to the knowledge, advice and technology at NPL and wider UK carbon measurement capabilities. SMEs which bring value to the UK economy and environment will have opportunities to apply for match-funded support including an initial half million pound fund for low carbon innovators.

NPL is already involved in more than 6m of low carbon projects a year, which have a track record of delivering a 1:20 return to the UK economy. The Centre aims to triple this volume over three years. It will also focus on up-skilling the UK workforce in carbon measurement and attracting business to the UK. A study to evaluate the environmental and economic impact of the Centre will report later in the year.

David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science, welcomed the Centre: "The science of measurement is essential in underpinning the transition to a low carbon economy. As the UK is a world leader in bo
