About GENERA 2017

Genera 2017 is a leading Energy and Environment International Trade Fair, organised annually by IFEMA in Madrid, Spain. It annually confirms its leading position in the Spanish energy fair industry and as a reference in the international scene and it addresses professional visitors only.

The 20th edition of Genera in 2017 covers the following sectors: Biofuel, Biomass and Residual waste, Coal, Cogeneration, Energy Efficiency, Geothermal Energy, Wind power, Gas, Hydraulic power, Hydrogen and fuel cells, Mobility, Oil, Energy Services, Photovoltaic solar energy, Solar thermal energy, Solar thermal electric energy, Other energies.

169 exhibitors welcomed 9154 visitors in 2016, from approx. 45 countries and even higher number are expected this year. This because Genera 2017 runs in parallel to three complementary trade fairs: (1) C&R, International Show of Air Conditioning, Heating, Ventilation and Refrigeration, (2) SIGA, Fair of Innovative Solutions for Water Management and (3) TECNOVA PISCINAS, Fair of Technology and Innovation for Water Installations. This increases attractiveness for the professional public who can access all four trade fairs.


The Business Beyond Borders matchmaking event will take place on the first two days of Genera 2017. The dedicated area is located in the main pavilion, conveniently situated in the central exhibition hall itself, offering high visibility and quick access. It builds upon and integrates the existing International Bilateral Meetings on Energy and Environmental Technology Transfer, organised by the Fundación para el Conocimiento Madri+d. In the last year, 140 meetings were held, 240 technological profiles were presented and over 100 public and private bodies took part.

In 2017, you will be able to find again over 200 profiles of potential business partners from within the EU and globally! The interactive and international conference will be shaped according to your needs: you can express your interest and questions when registering to the BBB matchmaking event!
