The 20th edition of Genera will be held between 28 February and 3 March 2017 in Feria de Madrid and will, once again, be one of the main meeting and business points with regard to renewable energy and energy efficiency in Spain. The different and numerous technical workshops, organized by the industry’s main organizations and companies, will offer a very broad vision of the current situation of the different fields making up the renewable energies and energy efficiency sector.
Ten years after its second edition, the 7th International Conference on Solar Air Conditioning is going to come back to Spain in the city of Tarragona. Spain is more than ever one of the hot spots for cooling in Europe and its recent economical revival clearly gives a lot of opportunities for renewable energy to enter the game of the air conditioning market. One decade ago, the Conference dominantly dealt with solar thermal cooling as the renewable solution for the future. In 2017, the situation is strongly different because meanwhile solar photovoltaic faced strong reduction in prices; the solar thermal market only slowly gains importance. As a matter of fact, the 7th OTTI conference on solar cooling is strongly giving the floor to this new generation of solar cooling systems based on the coupling between PV and air conditioning systems. The competition between solar thermal and solar photovoltaic which is hard and essentially in favor of the electrical solution at least for small to medium power range (until 100 kWcooling) is representing as well a very stimulating factor for innovation in the sector of solar thermal cooling. Another hot topic during the new edition is the diversification of usage of the solar heat beyond simply cooling: domestic hot water, space heating, process heat, heating for networks.
Climatizacion 2017, the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Ventilation and Refrigeration Exhibition, which is due to take place at Feria De Madrid between 28 February and 3 March 2017, will present the most recent designs and technology employed in the Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration industry. Organised by IFEMA, Climatization has established itself as one of the leading events for the industry on the Iberian Peninsula.
