The 24th edition of Ecomondo, the leading international exhibition of environmental technology, and the 14th international fair Key Energy dedicated to renewable energy, smart cities and energy efficiency will be held from 3rd to 6th November 2020 at Rimini Expo Centre.

Both exhibitions will be accompanied by a large number of seminars and conferences, organized by the Ecomondo Scientific Committee, led by Professor Fabio Fava, and Key Energyґs, led by Professor Gianni Silvestrini, scientific director of the Kyoto Club. The Green Deal, the new European economic policy of the Commission chaired by Ursula von der Leyen, will be covered in depth during the events.

Ecomondo 2020 will be formed by four expo macro-sectors: Waste and Resources; Water (Integrated Water Cycle), Circular Bioeconomy; Remediation and Hydrogeological Risk. These are all sectors in which Italy has already set a record: it is the European country with the highest circularity index. A virtuous cycle with a value of EUR 88 billion for the country’s economy, an added value of EUR 22 billion, and an overall workforce of 575 000 people.

Key Energy 2020, under the motto “Where Energy Meets The Future”, will also feature four expo sectors – Wind, Solar & Storage, Efficiency, Sustainable City. The exhibition provides a platform at which public policies meet the range of technology offered on the market to realize them, as well as being the opportunity for promoting legislative evolution on current issues, such as the necessity to regulate the development of energy communities as soon as possible.

Key Energy 2020 will host the launch of LUMIexpo, a section dedicated to smart spaces and people centric technology. LUMIexpo is aimed to connect those who buy, manage and apply integrated technologies in smart systems to improve energy efficiency and safety in the constructed environments (buildings, cities, evolved industries).
In 2019 Ecomondo and Key Energy provided a comprehensive showcase of over 1600 companies, attracting more than 93 000 professional visitors.
