The EERA conference – 10 years of lowering Europes CO2
Nils Røkke is the Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). This is his opening speech for the EERA 10-year anniversary. Last year, when we started to think about the EERA 10-year anniversary, the first question was whether to have an internal gathering of the EERA research community, or to celebrate it with partners and friends who have shared – and will share – this journey with us.
