Narec Becomes Member of European Energy Research Alliance
Narec informed yesterday that it became an associate member of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA).
Ignacio Marti, Narec‘s Chief Technology Officer, welcomed EERA’s decision to grant the membership: “Narec’s R&D activity has considerably increased over recent years and this acceptance acknowledges our position.”
To Narec, this membership is significant due to EERA’s status in the field of energy research. Namely, EERA streamlines and coordinates national and European energy R&D programmes, in order to speed up the development of energy technologies to the point where they can be embedded in industry-driven research. Narec states that the membership will firmly position it on the European research map and reinforce its links with research centres across Europe.
Mr. Marti said: “I look forward to greater cooperation and collaboration with the major European research organisations and facilities, helping to strengthen and enhance Narec’s existing capability and involvement with European R&D programmes.”
Peter Hauge Madsen, Coordinator of the EERA Joint Programme on Wind Energy, said: “Narec is home to some of the world’s most advanced test facilities, it was a logical and obvious decision to have them as part of the alliance. Combining Narec’s capabilities and facilities will be a great addition to the network of facilities and capabilities that exist across Europe.”
