Season’s greetings from La Jolla! We are pleased to share the latest installment of Energy Panorama for your holiday reading pleasure.
We concluded the year with our annual program in collaboration with the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington, DC and a discussion and panel at the National Press Club. The event focused on the energy sector in Mexico at the one-year anniversary of Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s administration. Panelists discussed the challenges and opportunities that private investors face across various sectors including power, renewables, oil and natural gas. Below are links to an event summary and highlight video.
On the sidelines of our event in Washington, DC, we sat down with Julio Valle from Mexico’s solar and wind energy associations for our podcast series. He shared the latest clean energy market developments, policy changes surrounding CELs and the unfolding legal challenges.
Keeping with our annual tradition, the December Energy Panorama looks back and shares selected reports, analysis, podcasts and webinars that we produced this year, as well as insights from our diverse programming across the hemisphere. What follows is a curated compendium of the 2019 IOA Energy & Sustainability Program.
We look forward to seeing you in 2020 and we wish you and yours a joyous and peaceful.
