From 11 to 15 November. Arenal marquee. 9th Edition of the Bilbao Science, Technology and Innovation Fair.
Under the slogan of "Please do touch", this fair aims to bring science closer to society and to make its youngest members aware of how important scientific and technological knowledge is for our welfare. This time the fair will provide experiments, games, demonstrations and practical and interactive teaching circuits, all of which will be explained in a friendly, entertaining and educational way.
Red Eléctrica's stand will offer games activities for everyone, based on experiments related to power generating and transmission such as "Travelling Electricity", Responsible Consumption or the Workshop How Does Electricity Travel?, among others. In addition visitors can play with a new version of the game "CONTROL, an electric control simulator" or get to know our scale model of the power system.

From 10 to 18 October, Zaragoza Trade Fair.
Red Eléctrica had a stand where visitors found various educational resources designed to reveal what lies hidden behind electrical power lines, in a simple and explanatory manner for both children and adults.
Red Eléctrica participated with the aim of showing, in an easy-to-understand way, the functions it performs in the electricity supply process. To do this, it used several games, suitable for all ages, based on experiments related with energy generation and transport, such as, "travelling electricity", responsible consumption, and the workshop, "Where does electricity travel?", among others. In addition, we had a new version of the game "CONTROLA, electricity control simulator," educational videos about the company's functions, a model of the electrical system, and the presentation of the comic, "The super electrics and the mysterious cloud".

From July to December in the Sotavento Experimental Wind Farm. Momán-Xermade (Lugo).
This exhibition was created with the aim of bringing to the public how electricity manifests itself, is produced and transmitted, and how electricity systems operate; in short, what happens from when the electricity is generated until it reaches your home. The exhibition is interactive and includes 20 modules, divided into three areas, which provide an overview of the history of electricity and its main players. It also presents the essential elements of electricity generation and transmission.
At first, visitors can check through several experiments the essential elements of electricity and its manifestations in nature; in the second module, they can re-visit the history of electricity and its main characters, and the last part includes some background information on Red Eléctrica's work: cables, scarescrows, beacons, isolators and some antique pieces. Monitors are also available with the mainland demand curve and the game CONTROLA: The amusing interactive simulator that offers players the chance to be an operator in an electricity control centre.
