Renewable energy in 2010 achieved an energy output equivalent to 35% of electricity consumption in Spain, which have become an area that potentially has clear signs of expansion and development.

An opportunity in this sense it is the agricultural sector and in particular the of irrigation because of its high installed power, which has recently experienced an increase of over 80% irrigation rates over the past 5 years.

For this reason, from the public company of Navarra Irrigation in cooperation with the National Renewable Energy Centre (CENER) has seen fit to organize the First National Congress of Irrigation and Renewable Energies, to be held in the auditorium Bastion of Pamplona, ​​the on 16 and 17 November. The main objective is to present technical solutions to users of irrigation in an improvement in their overall energy balance and therefore the viability of their farms.

The audience being targeted by this Congress is composed of representatives from government, energy companies, irrigators and technical communities, who will have the opportunity to exchange views and experiences as well as evaluating the adequacy of energy facilities for this specific niche .
