Centre for Carbon Measurement set to deliver large carbon reductions
Date:2/20/2013

The Centre for Carbon Measurement at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) will deliver eight megatonnes of carbon emissions reductions and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade, according to an independent report. This is a level of carbon saving is equivalent to 2% of the UK's annual carbon footprint.

The Centre was launched in March 2012 at NPL, the UK's National Measurement Institute. An independent report was recently commissioned by NPL to evaluate the impact of projects under the Centre's remit. It shows that measurement plays a significant role in reducing carbon emissions whilst contributing to economic growth.

The Centre was set up to consolidate and expand NPL's work on climate data, carbon accounting and low carbon technologies.

The report evaluated the Centre's portfolio of projects which includes projects to improve the accuracy of climate data from satellites, assess the potential to use biomass in end-of-life coal power stations, and create a temperature based control circuit to make energy efficient lighting even more efficient. It looked at results already achieved as well as anticipated results over the lifetime of the innovations.

Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker, who recently visited the Centre, said of the report: "The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL has supported businesses large and small with their innovations and in some cases has even designed its own emissions savings technologies. This work is essential in ensuring the effectiveness of energy reduction initiatives, for example the Government's Green Deal, which lets householders and businesses pay for energy-saving technology over time through their energy bills.

"For programmes like this to be effective for the individual and the environment - we need accurate ways to measure energy savings, and assurances that the technology we install does what it says on the tin."
