As part of the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR), TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory is developing standards for accurate flow metering and pricing at hydrogen refuelling stations.
The new standards will be developed as part of the Metrology for Hydrogen Vehicles 2 project which is part of the world’s first large-scale research project to tackle hydrogen fuel measurement inaccuracy challenges.
According to TÜV SÜD, in order to expand the use of hydrogen vehicles as a low carbon transport option across Europe, it is essential that the gap between legislation and technology is closed.
An extensive new infrastructure is also required, where end-users are assured of accurate flow metering and fair charging at refuelling stations.
