MATELEC rewards energy efficiency

With the aim of recognising and rewarding technically innovative projects in the field of energy efficiency in homes and buildings, the upcoming edition of MATELEC, the International Trade Show of Solutions for the Electrical and Electronics Industry, organised by IFEMA between 25th and 28th October at Feria de Madrid, is calling for entries for its Energy Efficient Installations Awards.

The awards, held in collaboration with KNX Spain and FENIE, represent recognition for installation companies making sustainable use of resources and open communication technologies with an end to promoting energy efficiency in homes and buildings. A judging panel comprised of qualified professionals will assess the contribution and innovation of the installation in terms of energy efficiency; the number of different applications integrated in the project; innovative solutions that contribute towards energy efficiency; flexibility for the future expansion of the installation; and user-friendliness, among other aspects.  

Any company that has installed and/or integrated a project within a home or other building in order to improve its energy efficiency can submit an entry for this second edition of the Energy Efficient Installations Awards, free of charge, provided that the project was completed between 1st November 2014 and 31st August 2016 and uses a control and automation technology that is recognised by international standards.  Interested companies can present their entries in one or several of the following categories:

  • FENIE Award: An installation in any type of building or home with any type of technology.
  • KNX Domotics Installation Award: An installation in a home or residential building adopting the KNX standard.
  • KNX Inmotics Installation Award: An installation in a tertiary or industrial building adopting the KNX standard.


Nine nominated projects will be exhibited in the KNX Zone between pavilions 4 and 6 at Feria de Madrid for the duration of MATELEC, to be held between 25th and 28th October. The winners in each category will be announced at the presentation ceremony, which will take place on 26th October in the same area, the KNX Zone, within the framework of the trade show.

Installation and integration companies interested in taking part in the Energy Efficient Installations Awards must submit the necessary documentation to the following email address before 11th September: https://premios.knx.org/es/register#main_information
