NMi Certifies 100% Hydrogen Meter for Market Access
26 November 2021
NMi certified the first 100% hydrogen residential meter — MeterSits Domusnext 2.0 MMU6 H2 — for market access.
SIT says the certification is a testimony of the accuracy and reliability of the hydrogen meter for use in Europe, the UK and other non-EU countries.
The hydrogen meter is the worlds first to gain NMis Measuring Instrument Directive certification.
The hydrogen meter was developed using funding secured from the UKs Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as part of the Hy4Heat initiative which is designed to create a roadmap to accelerate the shift from natural gas to hydrogen use in consumer homes and buildings.
MeterSits hydrogen meter has been installed and being tested in 100% hydrogen-powered homes in Gateshead in north England, according to a statement.
Federico de Stefani, Chairman and CEO of SIT group, said: “After the satisfaction of seeing our products installed in the hydrogen houses in the UK and exhibited at COP26, we are proud to obtain this certification for our 100% hydrogen meter which allows us to move from a test phase to a production phase.”
The certification comes at a time when the lack of infrastructure for hydrogen production, storage and transportation has been identified as one of the greatest challenges to market expansion.
However, increased investments by governments and market players in hydrogen technology innovation are changing the landscape for the better.
