Technical conferences

The central technical sessions of the International Fair Canagua and Energy have been inaugurated with the presentation of the analyst and geopolitical lecturer Pedro Baños.

During his speech, Baños, who was accompanied by Raúl García, technical coordinator of Economic Development, Energy Sovereignty, Climate and Knowledge of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, and Guillermo Vega, correspondent in the Canary Islands of the newspaper El País, reviewed the existing energy dependence in reality.

“We are living a very delicate moment due to the great dependence we have in Europe from abroad. Some 60% of the energy we consume comes from outside, with more than 45% coming from Russia,” said Baños, who urged the need to take decisions to alleviate this situation.

“Just as we cannot live without water, we must be aware that in order to maintain industrial development we need four things, basically: initiative, technology, natural resources and energy”, he pointed out.

With all this, the program continues on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning with the ‘Energy’ module, to talk about ‘Frontiers in renewable energies: where the sea captivates the sun’; ‘The agrivoltaica: synergy between solar energy and agriculture’; ‘The councils before the energy transition’ or the presentation of the ‘Renewable energy communities: Challenges and opportunities. Preliminary results of the COME RES project’, among others.

As regards the module dedicated to ‘Water’, which will take place on the afternoon of Thursday 10 and the morning of Friday 11, will deal with aspects such as ‘Innovation and technologies for the best use of natural resources: water, agriculture and food’; ‘The commitment to digitization to achieve intelligent water management’; as well as a space dedicated to the ‘Policy frameworks and technical regulations related to water’.
