ENERGY MEASUREMENT ACCURACY book
The author believes that energy measurement accuracy is generally available to us within acceptable engineering tolerances and what we must now do to achieve greater accuracy is establish a precise method for gathering the data and deriving the units of energy in a manner universally consistent between all concerned—buyer, seller, transporter, etc. Any number of standards has been published by generally acceptable but different professional organizations but there are conflicts between these standards and while such conflicts may be of minor concern to those technically familiar, they are of great consternation of others associated with the industry, more specifically, lawyers, accountants, and non-technical executives. A professional task group should be established to review and evaluate all currently available standards and compile items into one document, hopefully, with the sanction of all organizations. The educational effort would be directed toward the use of such a standard and to familiarize the public as well as hydrocarbon fuel industry employees with energy measurement.
