Overview                                                                                        (EN ESPAÑOL)

Since 2014, Mexico has pushed their electric industry forward by implementing an open competition regime for electricity supply and starting a new wholesale electricity market. Mexico is projected to require more than 56,000 MW of new capacity in the next 15 years. In this 4th Annual Conference, top Mexico regulatory experts and industry leaders come together to discuss progress of the reform over the last year and developments in its implementation. These experts will analyze and discuss how all aspects of the electricity sector in Mexico come into play and what we can expect in the months to come, especially under a new government.

This conference will be presented in Spanish.

This conference is useful for anyone interested in Mexico’s energy industry to include:
Power Market Traders/Specialists
Renewable Energy Project Developers
