In just over a year since Mexico launched a major overhaul of its energy sector, the country has made huge strides to implement key pieces of the reforms. Indeed, 2015 is shaping up to be Mexico‚Äôs energy year. But with much of the attention focused on oil and gas, it is easy to overlook the importance of the nation‚Äôs electric sector and magnitude of changes underway. The potential of the nation‚Äôs renewables sector also demands further analysis. With an abundance of wind, solar, and geothermal resources, Mexico has the elements to be a hemispheric — if not global — leader in renewable energy deployment.

The Institute of the Americas’ Mexico Electricity Roundtable will provide a high-level forum to address pressing questions surrounding the electricity sector in Mexico and particularly in the context of energy reform and its implementation. In Davos Style panels, experts from across government and industry will address a series of topics including the status of power market developments and regulatory changes at CRE and CENACE, as well as the role of the SENER and CFE, and the future for natural gas and renewables in the country’s power matrix.
