EntreREDes educational days: education geared towards a sustainable energy model
EntreREDes is a digital game created by Red Eléctrica as an educational tool for students in second, third or fourth year of secondary school (ESO) which allows them to better understand how the electricity system works in a fun and interactive way. In addition, the game offers added value since students can, at the same time, review the contents of the school curriculum learnt in class.
During 2016 and 2017, more than 8,370 students played entreREDes through the educational activities programme that Red Eléctrica organised in collaboration with institutions and educational and cultural entities.
‘A highway behind the wall socket’ Exhibition
A highway behind the wall socket is an interactive exhibition aimed at explaining how electricity is produced, transported, becomes visible and how electricity systems are operated; in short, what happens from the moment electricity is generated until it reaches our homes.
In this exhibition, we invite visitors to take part, discover and experiment with electricity and learn about the electricity supply process, and we show citizens how they can use energy more efficiently.The travelling exhibition began its tour in 2010 and since then has visited eight cities, during this period more than 440,000 people have visited the exhibition.

In connection with the construction of the Mezquita-Morella and Mudéjar-Morella power lines, Red Eléctrica designed in 2015 a specific Social Responsibility Plan for the 22 municipalities of Teruel and Castellón through which these power lines run.
This plan encompasses a set of initiatives of a social, cultural and environmental nature with the aim of creating value in the municipalities involved in the project, through the implementation of concrete plans during 2015 and 2016.
The definition of the actions that make up the Plan were carried out through a joint evaluation process of proposals in each of the municipalities, based on criteria for the creation of value for society, the environment and local heritage.
Specific plan of actions broken down by municipality
- Andorra: provision of children’s playground equipment for a municipal park.
- Alcorisa: delivery van for the local council and for use in the social fabric of the municipality.
- Alcañiz: provision of resources for a municipal children’s playground.

'Travelogue through the regions of Teruel and Castellón'
Additionally, Red Eléctrica published a special travelogue (Cuadernos de viaje por tierras de Teruel y Castellón) through the 22 municipalities in Teruel and Castellón through which these lines run. Throughout the pages of this publication, the reader discovers the historical and natural wealth, as well as the heritage and traditions, of these regions.
The publication covers a wide range of towns and villages distributed between the northeast of the province of Teruel and the northern end of the province of Castellón, including also municipalities in the regions of Cuencas Mineras and Maestrazgo in Teruel, those of Bajo Aragón and Andorra-Sierra de Arcos, as well as that of Els Ports in Castellón.
The travelogue provides original illustrations, including notes, drawings and watercolours, made specifically for this edition, along with more than one hundred photographs.

Red Eléctrica collaborated in 2015 with the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), the Spanish Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Padrosa Foundation on the Movilab project, a mobile laboratory installed in the trailer of a truck which toured 13 Spanish cities with the aim of bringing science and innovation closer to the citizens of these cities. The route of the Movilab began in La Coruna on 22 September and concluded on 27 December 2015 at the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Madrid.
The goal of this travelling laboratory, was to present scientific concepts in both an entertaining and rigorous manner, trying to arouse the curiosity of society regarding research in the field of science and innovation. The workshops consisted of activities related to both light and its physical principles, as well as electricity transmission. Thus, visitors had the opportunity to make a light bulb or a fluorescent tube with household materials, and learn about the elements that are part of electricity lines, such as conductor cables, bird saving devices and insulators, among other activities.
You will find all the information about the project on the Movilab website (only available in Spanish).
Red Eléctrica published in 2014 the Cuadernos de viaje por tierras de Extremadura (‘Travelogue through the region of Extremadura’), on the occasion of the inauguration of the power line between the towns of Almaraz (Cáceres) and Guillena (Seville), one of the most relevant electricity infrastructure built in the region to date.
The main theme of the publication is a journey through more than forty municipalities through with this power line runs. Throughout the pages of this publication, the reader discovers the nature, heritage, history, culture, gastronomy and people of the towns and villages distributed between the north of Extremadura, through the provinces of Cáceres and Badajoz, until it enters Andalusia through Seville.
Furthermore, this travelling companion comes with original illustrations, including notes, drawings and watercolours, made expressly for this edition, along with over one hundred photographs.
With this publication, Red Eléctrica attempts to showcase the artistic, cultural and environmental wealth of the region, contributing to strengthen the identity of the cities, towns and villages through which the power line runs.
Red Eléctrica has been collaborating since 2009 on the project for the drafting the ‘Encyclopedia of the Romanesque Style in the Iberian Peninsula’ (Enciclopedia del Románico en la Península Ibérica). This work is the result of extensive research on the existing Romanesque artistic wealth in Spain and represents more than 15 years of fieldwork.
In the 48 volumes published so far, around 700 professionals of the Centre of Studies of the Romanesque Style of the Santa María la Real Foundation (including medievalists, art historians, landscape architects, architects, archaeologists and photographers) have collaborated, amongst which are some of the most renowned Romanesque art scholars, both Spanish and foreign. Red Eléctrica has collaborated on the volumes regarding Cuenca, Zaragoza, the Basque Country, Pontevedra, La Coruña, Barcelona, Tarragona and Orense. To date, Red Eléctrica has collaborated on the publication of a total of 16 volumes.
Red Eléctrica fully endorses the aim behind this project, as it maintains an ongoing commitment to the preservation and dissemination of the cultural and artistic wealth of the territories, and showcases the historical, cultural and social heritage of the territory.
