The First Initiative

The first meeting took place at the Houston International Airport in June 1993. Mayor Leif Maasvaer, Torbjorg Undheim and Trygve Brekke of Stavanger, and Knut Bulow of Houston discussed the possibilities to form a network organization between energy capitals.

The City of Stavanger took the lead to create a proposal for the organization and draft the first Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
