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

to reach the final savings figure. Projects were explored using NPL sources, conversations with NPL scientists, project partners or clients, and industry users, and wider research into relevant markets. The assessments undertook estimations of energy savings, direct and indirect emission reductions, development of new technology, increases in staff employed at client organisations, and cost savings.

The report included projects which were already underway when the Centre launched, but are now under the Centre's remit. Bringing these projects into the Centre has helped to streamline their management and coordinate activity to advance NPL's expertise, thereby improving opportunities for future impact.

Moving forward

The report confirmed that measurement plays an important and economically advantageous role in carbon reduction. It concluded that measurement adds value across many areas and all the current areas of the Centre's focus play a useful role. The report advises that the Centre will deliver most impact by maintaining a balanced portfolio, rather than trying to focus further into certain areas.

Jane Burston, Head of the Centre for Carbon Measurement, says "We are only one year in but already the Centre is showing its value. This analysis confirms we are on the right track and that carbon measurement brings a clear, quantifiable economic and environmental benefit. We can now assuredly forge ahead with a diverse range of projects that use our measurement expertise to provide vital support to climate science, low carbon technologies and carbon reduction initiatives."
