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

l projects assessed will have some impact on carbon emissions reductions, actual quantifiable impact varied substantially. Measurement had the biggest impact where a lot of energy is involved - often where a major technology transition is yet to occur, such as domestic heating; power stations; fuel cells and the smart grid. Where a technology transition is already underway, such as LED lighting, measurement can enhance the significant savings being created by these technologies, though the main savings from such technologies are less attributable to individual measurement projects.

Examples of projects analysed by the report include optimising a new design of electrode for organic photovoltaic cells cells that turn sunlight into energy. The work underpinned the design of flexible electrodes which are essential if the promise of organic photovoltaics initially in areas such as wearable electronic devices is to be realised. The specific project studied is estimated to reduce carbon emissions by 257 kilotonnes over 8-10 years.

In other projects it was not possible to specifically quantify the carbon savings resulting from the work. This was the case in projects that contribute to our understanding of climate change, for example 'TRUTHS', a project which aims to calibrate earth observation satellites in order to provide more accurate climate data. Here the report highlighted that even small improvements in our climate predictions, could lead to better international consensus on the actions required and hence an increased likelihood of global agreements on climate change mitigation.

The methodology

The research was carried out by Technologia, a consultancy that assesses the impact of scientific projects. The aim was to understand and demonstrate the Centre's benefit and inform its future focus.

Technologia assessed twelve projects in detail and then applied these analyses to the entire portfolio of the Centre's projects
