Among the main objectives of the trip that representatives of the National Renewable Energy Centre (CENER), -including its Director General, José Javier Armendáriz-, have made this week to the United States, are to sign a collaboration agreement with Grand Valley State University and North American companies. The State of Michigan is the first stop on this journey, where it is scheduled for them to meet with one of the largest chemical industry consortiums, which has expressed its interest in questions related to electrical vehicle batteries, energy storage, as well as photovoltaic cell components and materials. Another important appointment will be the meetings coordinated by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, MEDC, where possible work channels between CENER and American manufacturers of wind components, as well as with consultants, will be analysed. The aim of these meetings is to prepare, with CENER, resource studies. Furthermore, a collaboration agreement with Grand Valley State University is planned to be signed, in order to develop wind energy analysis studies together. The last stage of the trip will take the CENER delegation to Washington and to New York, where the agenda includes, among others, a meeting with representatives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, NYSERDA, and with Juan Verde, Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia from the Trade Department of the Government of the United States. Jose Javier Armendariz will also be present at the conference that the President of the Government of Navarra, Miguel Sanz, will offer on renewable energies at the New York Times Center. With this trip, the presence of CENER will be consolidated as a technical benchmark for North American entities and enterprises. In fact, last year, it renewed the agreement with NREL, the national renewable research laboratory of the United States, for three years. CENER has also collaborated with Clemson University as a technical advisor for a new wind turbine test infrastructure in South Carolina, and it will participate, for the second consecutive year, with its own stand, at the Windpower Fair, one of the most important in the world on wind energy, which will be held in California in May.
