From 17 to 20 November in the Pamplonetario (Pamplona, Spain).
Red Eléctrica participates in this fair that will try to show the general public how innovation improves our quality of life. The fair is held within the framework of the Science, Technology and Innovation Weeks and Red Eléctrica will illustrate, through the use of diverse educational materials, the challenge faced when attempting to achieve the balance between generation and consumption, how renewable energies are integrated into the electricity system and its backing of the electric vehicle as a new consumer which will allow a more efficient operation of the electricity system.

From 12 to 15 November in Salamanca. Free admission.
Red Eléctrica will be providing educational resources designed to show what is hidden behind the overhead electricity lines, in a simple, didactic, and educational way for both children and adults. At the stand, visitors can get to understand the challenge faced when attempting to find the balance between generation and consumption and also how renewable energies are integrated into the electricity system, by means of several didactic experiments, interactive displays, the demand curves and wind power production and the game CONTROLA. In addition, visitors will also be the protagonist and will be able to find out how, as a consumer, electricity is consumed and what effect our habits actually have on consumption. Finally, Red Eléctrica will present its backing of the electric vehicle as a new consumer which will allow a more efficient operation of the electricity system.

From March to May in the Castilla-La Mancha Science Museum (Cuenca).
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.
