MEF 2022 ECHO Just Around the Corner

By María José Goytia | Wed, 08/31/2022 - 17:43

Mexico’s energy policy shift has dominated the sector’s public and private agenda for the past years. Throughout 2022 alone, multiple regulatory changes have impacted the trust in the market, leaving the industry at an impasse. Meanwhile, the world keeps moving toward decarbonization by promoting cleaner power production sources.

Internationally, rising fuel prices, inflation and the race against the clock to fight climate change are influencing energy markets. The Russian invasion of Ukraine is pushing fossil fuel prices upward, as the natural gas supply has decreased and countries struggle to ensure energy security.

With natural gas prices rising, countries are moving fast to grow renewable power sources in their energy matrix. However, Mexico’s energy policy has prioritized traditional power production and increased its reliance on imported natural gas. The slowdown in renewable energy development has created tension with Mexico’s North American trade partners, the US and Canada, leading Mexico to face international consultations that could end in an international arbitration panel under the USMCA framework.

As the industry adapts to these challenges, spaces to maintain a dialogue and foster understanding become progressively relevant. These topics and more about the present and future of the Mexican energy sector will be discussed by decision-makers and key players at Mexico Energy Forum 2022 ECHO.

Aside from a special emphasis in natural gas, Mexico Energy Forum 2022 ECHO will also provide an attractive platform to debate other power production sources, like waste-to-energy, e-fuels, and conventional renewable resources like wind and solar. The forum will also provide spaces to share ideas about the relevance of clean energy regulation and the role the state should play in strengthening transmission and distribution.

During Mexico Energy Forum 2022 ECHO, key stakeholders will share their insights regarding these issues, making the forum an event you will not want to miss.

Mexico Business is proud to extend an invitation to the first edition of the Mexico Natural Gas Forum, on Sept. 6, 2022, and the eleventh edition of the Mexico Energy Forum 2022, on Sept. 7 and 8, 2022. Throughout the three-day event, the industry’s most important leaders, investors, and decision-makers will gather to discuss the sector's future and develop new business opportunities.
