Genera participates in two forums this week

This week Genera backs two important industry-related events -Foro Solar and the 15th Annual Cogeneration Congress-, organised by associations that are part of the trade fair’s organising committee.

On the 24 and 25 October Genera was present at ‘Cogeneration: efficient and clean heat and energy for a sustainable energy future for Europe’, a meeting within the ‘15th Annual Cogeneration Congress’, organised by ACOGEN, COGEN España and COGEN Europe. This forum brings together about a hundred experts, cogenerators, industrialists and suppliers to address the role of cogeneration in the energy transition.
