Focus on solar self-consumption
Especially experts from Portugal, Germany, Italy and France were present from a European perspective, as were many exhibitors and experts from China. Behind this is a real boom in the development of renewable energies in Spain. Visitors were particularly interested in questions about solar self-consumption. Experts have long recognised the great potential of the energy market in Spain.
Exhibitors from China and Turkey strongly represented
In the end, the organiser counted 402 companies. This represents an increase of more than half compared to the previous year. More than a third, around 35 per cent, were foreign companies from 21 countries – especially from China and Turkey. (nhp/mfo)
