There's a lot of sub genres in electronica. The term 'techno' has been warped to include all electronic music due to mainstream media being ignorant. Techno doesn't include trance, house, vocals or any of the more modern sub-genres. The correct term is electronica. You have:

trance
vocal trance
goa-psy trance
house
hard dance
euro dance
progressive
hardcore
ambient
drum & bass
break beats
chillout
etc, as sub-genres.
"techno" is just a broader sub-genre of electronica that was pioneered in Detroit, derived from synth pop and electro.
