The challenges of the energy transition are discussed on the second day of the International Canagua and Energy Fair

General satisfaction among exhibitors and visitors who have already attended the 13th edition of the International Fair Canagua and Energy, which this Thursday is celebrating its second day in Infecar. With 70 exhibitors from the water sector, energy and ecoislands and ecocities, this event is being the meeting point of the main actors of renewable energy in the regional and national scene.

Thus, this edition of Canagua and Energy is being part of a reverse mission organized by Proexca involving representatives of eight African institutions that launch tenders with water and renewable energy from Cape Verde, Senegal and Morocco. This is in addition to the presence of visitors and exhibitors of German, Portuguese or Romanian nationality, among others.

Also, and as part of the celebration of this 13th edition, this Thursday has developed a meeting of the main participants of the European project COME RES, which aims to increase the share of renewable energy in the electricity sector and focuses on facilitating the development and support the implementation of enabling frameworks for renewable energy communities (RECs).

In Spain, the COME RES project is active in four regions: Valencia and Catalonia are considered model regions, given their long tradition of energy cooperatives. While the Balearic and Canary archipelagos are considered target regions in which renewable energy communities should be promoted.

Thus, and as manifested in the preliminary results of this project, the state of development of Renewable Energy Communities in Spain is promising, although still limited to a few embryonic experiences throughout the country, mainly reliably in photovoltaic technology.

Technical Conferences

On the morning of Thursday, November 10, Canagua and Energy has continued to develop the module ‘Energy’, within the section of the Technical Conference of this event and has been held in three blocks, having as closing a space for debate in which the councils of Gran Canaria, Tenerife and La Palma have participated to put on the table the path they are taking in relation to the energy transition.

With all this, from 16.00 hours this afternoon, will begin the second module of this Technical Conference, which will be dedicated to ‘Water’ and will run until 14.00 hours tomorrow, Friday. In this space will be discussed ‘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 ‘Normative frameworks and technical regulations related to water’.

Enermar Conference

On the occasion of Canagua and Energy, the Gran Canaria Congress Center of Infecar is also hosting the 12th Enermarc Technical Conference, which began on Thursday, November 10 and is organized by the AINE Marine Renewable Energies Working Group.

During these two days will be addressed, among others, wave energy; new areas of study for the implementation in the sea of power generation plants; the challenges and opportunities of floating wind energy; or floating wind, path to industrial development.

The 13th edition of the International Fair Canagua and Energy is promoted and financed by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, the Energy Island Council and the Water Island Council; organized by Infecar; with Cajasiete as official collaborator; the collaboration of the Chamber of Commerce of Gran Canaria, Proexca, the Technological Institute of the Canary Islands and SM Advance Energy; as well as with the collaborating media iRehabitae, Aguas Residuales, Retema, Equipamiento y Servicios Municipales and TecnoAqua.
