Access to sustainable energies is a fundamental vector for industry when choosing its location. Together with other elements such as access to specialized personnel or a stable and favorable regulatory framework, renewables are an element that contributes to industrial development and competitiveness, as well as to the structuring of the territory.

This is one of the key premises that will be analyzed in detail at the 1st International Conference on Innovation in Industrial Energy Management, which will take place in Zaragoza on November 24. The event is organized jointly by Foro Sella and Foro Industria y Energía, with the collaboration of  CEOE de Aragón, the Energy Cluster of Aragon y la University of Zaragoza.

The meeting, which will take place at  Hábitat Sella in Villanueva de Gállego (Zaragoza, Spain), will be attended by leading authorities from local, national and European institutions, as well as representatives from the business sector, who will address the challenge of the energy transition from a global perspective.

The conference will address three key issues: the current situation of energy management in industry at different scales, future prospects and the analysis of best practices in Aragon, with the participation of companies such as Amazon Web Services, Stellantis, Saica and BSH-Balay.

The institutional vision will be provided by José Manuel Albares, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Spain, together with representatives of the European Commission and the German and French embassies. As Keynote speaker, the conference will feature Professor Mike Berners-Lee, expert in carbon footprint analysis and author of the bestsellers “There is no planet B” and “How bad are bananas? The carbon footprint of everything”, who will present a report prepared by Lancaster University (UK) analyzing the climate impact of Information and Communication Technologies.
