Abstract The project will test the feasibility, design and ultimately build metering installations attached to the hydrogen test facilities at Spadeadam(Futuregrid/H21) and will replicate metering systems across the whole gas transportation system through to industrial metering installations. The facility will;Provide valuable data on the compatibility of existing metering installations and ancillary equipment under hydrogenSupport determination of repurposing costsAnswer gas equation fundamentalsBe a test facility for new innovative technologyThis will provide consumers and networks assurance that data critical to their businesses will be accurate, supporting the transition to net zero at the lowest cost to society.This project will bring together a number of industry experts:National Grid Gas; Metering, with an extensive background and experience in metering across a large number of industrial users, for design, build and operation, will lead on the project working closely with representatives fromGT, including John Wilson, Gas Metering manager -- who brings a wealth of metering knowledge from the last 30 years and was involved in the original metering requirements for the gas industry. Both will provide repurposed assets where appropriate for the build of the test facility.Northern Gas Networks will provide key stakeholder requirements of metering needs from a distribution perspective as well as specification requirements for tying into the H21 facility.DNV as an independent technical specialist and who oversee the Spadeadam site will bring expertise across a wide range of areas including, safety assessments, feasibility studies, build, design etc and will provide strong support across all stages of the project.IGEM will provide expertise in industry standards that all the networks and wider equipment providers use to ensure safety and performance of assets, including metering installations. These standards will be assessed and tested through the project, enabling specification and standards to be amended to ensure hydrogen compatibility.Each partner has been selected as they have a deep understanding of metering processes across the whole gas transportation chain as well as the capability to support feasibility, design, build and operate requirements.This facility will specifically look at metering applications used by UK network operators and critical industrial and commercial users in a way that combines end consumer and network requirements and which utilises the considerable metering expertise from the partners above. This will support delivery of the next generation of user driven digital products, services and processes spanning transmission and distribution.VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIkav6q_Xik&list=PLrMOhOrmeR6ktSag0RbT7zPNVn0p1P2f6&index=25
