I International Congress on energy of the Community of Madrid. ENERMADRID. The future of energy, the energy of the future

Energy plays an increasingly important role in human activity and social progress. Until recently, the available energy resources were limited and with a negative impact on the environment because we depended mainly on energy sources based on fossil fuels. Hence the need to work intensively to improve efficiency in the generation, storage and use of energy resources. But we must also put a special emphasis on the development and extension to all levels of renewable energies, which are clean, cheap energies of almost infinite abundance.

The Community of Madrid wants to be at the forefront of progress in this area, for which it carries out various actions, among which it is worth highlighting the development of an Energy Sustainability Law and the Energy Plan of the Community of Madrid-Horizonte 2030, which are currently in preparation.

According to this strategy, the next 7 and 8 October 2020 will be held the I INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON ENERGY OF THE COMMUNITY OF MADRID, ENERMADRID, with the slogan "The Future of Energy, the Energy of the Future", which will have the purpose of analyzing the situation of the energy sector, its prospects with the 2030 and 2050 horizons, the analysis of the situation and forecasts of the different energy technologies and the progress made in the transition towards a low-carbon energy model.
