TT.X Technical Multi-Track with Parallel SYMPOSIA
Metrology and Nanomaterials for Energy
Co-organized with INRIM, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft
Chairs: Luca BOARINO & Natascia DE LEO, INRIM
The European Union aims to produce over 32 % of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2030 to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions. The introduction of the Energy Union strategy, supported by directives and regulations that address all aspects of the energy supply chain, and measures to reduce energy consumption at point of use, has made Europe a world leader in this field. This strategy focuses efforts on sustainable and secure energy supplies, methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the competitiveness of European industries. The energy projects funded under the EURAMET research programmes, EMRP, EMPIR and EPM have brought together research groups from metrology institutes, academia, and industry to work collaboratively. These address some of the measurement challenges associated with the better quantification of parameters across the entire energy chain, from generation, transmission and eventual consumption. The metrological research focused on technologies and metrological research that supported reduced greenhouse gasses, a secure, sustainable and affordable energy system whilst increasing the competitiveness of Europe's industries. This symposium outlines the key technical achievements and details the new measurement capabilities developed as a result of the collaborations within these energy themed projects. From power generation to electric cars and mobile devices, the transition of the European energy sector from using fossil fuels towards producing sustainable energy requires several technological innovations. This includes batteries capable of storing ever increasing amounts of electricity while reducing their weight and cost, and the generation and transmission of vast amounts of green electricity, which itself requires more efficient solar panels and wind turbines. Here we explore the important role of nanomaterials in trying to meet these challenges.
