ANPIER and FECOAM organize the conference "The opportunities of the new energy scenario: photoelectric generation and agricultural production"

Monday, March 25th, 2019

ANPIER, the National Association of Photovoltaic Energy Producers, organizes with FECOAM, the Federation of Agricultural Cooperatives of Murcia, the day "The opportunities of the new energy scenario: photovoltaic generation and agricultural production", in which Cajamar and Campos Solares collaborate.

The inauguration will be made by the President of the Region of Murcia, Fernando López Miras, along with the President of FECOAM, Santiago Martínez Gabaldón;

the President of ANPIER, Miguel Ángel Martínez-Aroca;

and Bartolomé Viúdez, Member of the Board of Directors of Cajamar.

The closing will be in charge of the Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Region of Murcia, Miguel Ángel del Amor Saavedra, and the Employment, University, Business and Environment Advisor of the Region of Murcia, Javier Celdrán Lorente.

The professor of Economic Structure, Dr. Ramón Tamames, will also participate.

Murcia is one of the regions in the world with the best conditions for the production of photovoltaic solar energy.

With 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and an adequate orography, our land is able to provide the necessary supply to meet the energy needs of our agri-food sector.

The photovoltaic technology has reached its full maturity and is the source of generation of cheaper energy that is known, capable of delivering energy at € 32 / MW;

In addition, the regulatory obstacles to the introduction of self-consumption have begun to fade.

This is the time to take advantage of the abundant sunshine of the region and the capabilities of our photovoltaic engineering to lower the costs of supply and boost our competitiveness, without emitting harmful gases into the atmosphere.

Murcia's agri-food sector contributes 22% of the GDP of our Region and 28% of employed people, considering the entire value chain and the auxiliary activity that it requires.

The agrarian activity is the base of our economy and the true vertebradora of our balanced territorial structure.

Our farmers and ranchers, our industrial dynamics and the export capacities that we have demonstrated in this Region, have allowed us to be at the international forefront of agri-food.

The efficient use of resources, in particular of water, has been an essential factor in this development.

Innovation has also been key for the advance to be sustained.

Now, we have another great opportunity to boost the progress of the agri-food sector and our Region: photovoltaic solar energy.

C-FEM and Astrade collaborate in a film session adapted to people diagnosed with ASD

Monday, March 25th, 2019

ASTRADE will collaborate for the third consecutive year with the European Fantastic Film Festival of Murcia C-FEM in its adapted film session on Wednesday 27 March with the screening of Coco (Unkrich, 2017) at 12 noon at the Regional Film Library with free admission.

ASTRADE is an association of parents that was born in 1996 with the main objective of improving the quality of life of people diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and their families.

In this constant search for the improvement of the quality of life of our users, they work for the development of several dimensions related to this concept such as communication, self-determination, social skills, community use, sports, work, leisure and free time, etc.

The association thanks the organizers of the C-FEM, especially Ana Belén Baeza, for the sensitivity they have shown in returning to ASTRADE.

This adapted film session facilitates the development of several of the dimensions named above.

Some of the dimensions of the quality of life most directly related to this activity would be:

– Use of the community: that our users know the resources that society provides them and be able to access them.

– Leisure and free time: A primordial aspect of a full life is to have free quality time and cinema, often inaccessible to the profile of our children, is a very important resource in this regard.

Finally, we note that another key aspect that encourages this type of activity is to give visibility to our collective and to promote inclusion, because although we have improved a lot in recent years, they remain fundamental objectives of the ASTRADE association. .

The PSOE requests the resignation of Díez de Revenga "for lying, for hiding information and for not abstaining in decisions in which their companies participated"

Monday, March 25th, 2019

The deputy Emilio Ivars asks for explanations to President López Miras for defending the actions of the CEO of Transport, Ports and Coasts and Lacking the Truth

The Deputy of the Socialist Parliamentary Group Emilio Ivars has demanded the resignation of the Director General of Transport, Coasts and Ports, José Ramón Díez de Revenga, for lying and hiding information in his declaration of assets, in addition to not abstaining in any of the three administrative procedures in which their companies under investigation participated, and for still maintaining the administration of another company.

In the opinion of Emilio Ivars the conclusions of this appearance are very clear: "we have attended a false appearance, without concrete answers and with a flagrant concealment of information".

José Ramón Díez de Revenga has appeared this morning at the Special Investigation Commission on the revision of Contracts, Guarantees and Public Grants, at the request of the Socialist Parliamentary Group, and which is chaired by the socialist deputy Rafael González Tovar.

For the PSOE the general director of Transport, Ports and Coasts "has lied in parliamentary headquarters because it is not true that abstained in the three procedures from minute zero".

Ivars showed that there are up to nine documents – eight signed by Díez de Revenga and one in which he is mentioned – that deny it.

On the other hand, "the CEO has hidden information in his declaration of assets and interests, information of the participation he has in the companies, who are the managers of these, and has obviated his participation in a company based in Hong Kong" .

The socialist deputy has indicated that "we do not know whether voluntarily or not, but he is aware that he has knowingly hidden that information, because he has not wanted to respond to it in this commission."

Ivars has also demanded President Fernando Lopez Miras to give explanations about the assertions he made recently in Yecla, in which he claimed that 'Díez de Revenga had never participated in any of the projects at any time'.

Emilio Ivars has stated that this is "flatly false, since there is evidence in those nine documents that he did and omitted his duty of abstention in the proceedings."

The Socialist deputy has added that "the Region we want does not deserve to have in its government people who lie, who hide information and who participate in the decisions that are going to be adopted on their companies, when their obligation is the opposite".


López Pagán: "The PP of López Miras only has to lie and continue to use water for electoral purposes" The deputy secretary general of the PSRM, Joaquín López Pagán, indicated that while the PSOE complies with the law and seeks solutions, th

Monday, March 25th, 2019

The deputy secretary general of the PSRM and spokesman of the Socialist Parliamentary Group, Joaquín López Pagán, said about the intention of the president of the regional government to meet with their counterparts from Andalusia and Valencia to discuss the future of the Tajo-Segura pipeline, which " to the Partido Popular of President López Miras "only the lie remains and continue to use water for electoral purposes".

López Pagán underlined that the reality is that with the socialist government of Pedro Sánchez there has been no lack of water in the Region of Murcia and the Law of the Tajo-Segura Transfer with punctual transfers has been fulfilled.

The socialist leader has proposed to López Miras that instead of seeking confrontation seek dialogue and consensus and join the manifesto that was signed at the time by the general secretary of the PSRM and candidate for the Presidency of the Community, Diego Conesa, with the President of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig.

"The only certainty is that while the PSOE seeks solutions to the serious problem of water in the region, the PP continues with the confrontation and the water policy for a few votes, which is the greatest irresponsibility that the Popular Party has committed during the last 20 years, "he concluded.
