Felleskollokvium - With great power comes great responsibility: Measurements for the future hydrogen society

Senior Engineer Sigrid Rønneberg, Justervesenet (The Norwegian Metrology Service)


The future is rapidly changing, and the way we measure must be updated accordingly. Correct measurement is crucial to daily life, and we implicitly trust in the accuracy of measurements, largely due to the efforts of Justervesenet.

With the entire infrastructure related to measurements within its responsibilities, Justervesenet ensures that all measurements in Norway can be traced back to the SI system through a direct line.

In recent years, both the SI system and technological requirements has changed significantly. As the hydrogen society emerges, it becomes vital to measure hydrogen correctly, something which is impossible today. The solution? To invent the technology ourselves!

About the lecturer

Sigrid Rønneberg has a master of technology from applied physics, and a PhD in nanomechanics where she studied the physics behind ice adhesion to solid surfaces. Since she started at Justervesenet in early 2020, she has been working at the National Standards Laboratory, which maintains direct realisations of several SI units at the main facility at Kjeller. Her responsibilities include project management and research, with a special focus on hydrogen and metrology for renewable energy.


The talk will also be available in real time on Zoom.
