On 22 November the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) designated Astana Kazakhstan as the city that will host the International Exhibition from 10 June to 10 September 2017.

The central theme of Astana Expo 2017, Energy for the future, is designed to reassess our attitude to energy and its consumption. The idea is to provide a platform for global dialogue on strategic priorities in the use of modern energy sources and to seek, in a coordinated manner, a response to the challenges of our day. The main goal is to promote a new energy model for the future, which involves the progressive development of our planet resulting in the wellbeing of future generations.

Until July 26, the Spanish Pavilion will carry out an extensive programme of activities that have begun on Monday 17th, at 11:00 with the Official Ceremony at the National Day Stage (NDS). At 11:30 a.m. have performed the dancers of the Compañia Flamenco, then at 11:45 pm, the street theater company Carros de Foc with their show in the surroundings of the Pavilion of Spain and at 17.30. a participatory reading of the book Don Quixote of La Mancha (in Russian) took places in the NDS.

Spanish Pavilion: “Energy for the Planet”
The Pavilion of Spain is located in Cluster C1 at the North of the Exhibition grounds together with that of Germany, Monaco and Holland and has an area of 868 m2 distributed in a single plant. 

Under the slogan "Future Energy" the proposal by ACCIONA PRODUCCIONES Y DISEÑO for the Spanish pavilion at the Astana 2017 International Exhibition seeks to develop the following aspects related to the relevant position of Spain in relation to the proposed theme:
  • To contribute to the Expo theme "Future Energy" from a Spanish perspective, taking advantage of the opportunity to present our singularities, contributions and strengths to the world in this field.
  • To share and disseminate Spain's experiences in relation to renewable energy, particularly wind power, photovoltaic solar power and hydro-electric power, in addition to thermal exploitation (thermal solar, biomass, bio-gas, bio-fuel and recovery of energy from solid urban waste), with emphasis on the best practices for sustainable energy currently being developed in our country.
  • To promote and disseminate the benefits of renewable energy that permit sustainable growth and development as a result of innovative Spanish creative technology in this field.
  • To present singular experiences organised around the relationship between sources of renewable energy, energy efficiency, universal access to energy and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • To show Spain's contribution to the objectives of the Sustainable Development Agenda adopted by the United Nations at the Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, particularly the objectives concerning universal access to sustainable energy and the measures to fight against climate change.
Under these premises the Spanish Pavilion aims to showcase the Spanish exterior commitment in terms of renewable energies and climate change, Spanish T&D&I for the transition towards competitive, sustainable renewable energies in the fight against climate change, international presence of Spanish companies in the energy sector and Spanish energy management.

The showground spans 25 hectares inside a larger 140-hectare area equipped with the necessary support buildings and infrastructure. The Expo will feature 14 international pavilions, 2 company pavilions, 2 thematic pavilions, the “best practice area” pavilion, 3 commercial pavilions, the pavilion of Kazakhstan, an auditorium, an art centre and an energy pavilion. This Expo promotes the idea that everyone is responsible and individually part of the development and implementation of a sustainability plan for the production, distribution and use of energy.
