R&D Nester received a visit from Portugal Energy Tour (PET), a Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) initiative.

FLAD, accompanied by a delegation of North American business people and managers of industrial associations from New England and New York, has an ongoing roadshow in Portugal demonstrating the best of what is happening in the national energy sector.

"This visit represents recognition of our centre as an important body in the national energy field." That was how Nuno Souza e Silva, Managing Director of R&D Nester, viewed the PET visit to the REN and State Grid R&D Centre. The visit on 7 December included a presentation by João Conceição, Executive Director of REN, on the company's activities, which was followed by a presentation by R&D Nester's Managing Director about the work carried out at the R&D Centre.

"The possibility of cooperating with international partners where we can contribute with our know-how is something we always value", said Nuno Souza e Silva, for whom this visit also allows "sharing the important work we are developing in several areas, such as renewables integration, storage and grid planning, which aroused a great deal of interest among our American colleagues."

PET's goal is to examine the energy sector in Portugal through visits to facilities and projects related to the grid management, with smart energy grids, and with various primary energy sources, particularly solar and wind energy. Other goals are to identify business opportunities for American companies in Portugal, and for Portuguese companies established in the United States.
