TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory joins research programme to improve meter accuracy for renewable gas

15 July 2019

As part of the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR), TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory has joined a research consortium which aims to improve the accuracy and durability of commercially available meters for renewable gases.

Operators across the gas supply chain require accurate measurements to bill transactions. However, renewable gases have different physical characteristics from more widely used natural gas, and research is required to determine the impact that these gases have on commercially available flow meters. 

The objective of the project is to provide reliable data to the industry and to make measurement recommendations for renewable gases, including any necessary adaptations to current gas meter standards.
TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory will deliver recommendations for the renewable gas conformity requirements of currently available gas meters, against the European Union’s Measuring Instruments Directive (2014/32/EU). While the Directive seeks to harmonise many aspects of legal metrology across member states, it only covers natural gas applications and does not currently include any specifications for renewable gases.
