A new collaboration between Risø DTU and nine other leading national laboratories within EU has taken up the challenge to found a European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). The key objective of the alliance is to accelerate the development of new low carbon technologies for EU to move toward a low carbon economy At the first European conference on Low Carbon Technologies held in Paris on the 27th of October 2008, the founding partners of the EERA signed a Declaration of Intent. The primary focus will be on the strategic and targeted development of next generations of energy technologies. “EERA’s planned focus areas match the research conducted at Risø extremely well. Risø is leading the way within wind energy and is also an important player within virtually all the other sustainable energy technologies which will be covered by the EERA alliance”, says Henrik Bindslev, Director of Risø DTU.
