Mexico Energy Forum 2022 ECHO to Discuss Industry’s Future

By María José Goytia | Mon, 08/01/2022 - 10:24

Mexico’s energy market faces crucial challenges ahead. With utility-scale renewable energy development slowing down due to the government’s shift in energy policy, Mexico’s energy mix has grown more dependent on fossil fuels for power production, specifically on natural gas. Meanwhile, global market volatility has pushed fossil fuel prices upward, leading to further inflation as economies recover from the pandemic’s shutdowns.

To create resilient strategies, spaces to maintain a dialogue and foster understanding within the energy industry are more relevant than ever. 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, which will be preceded by Mexico Natural Gas Forum 2022.

With natural gas becoming one of the most relevant fuels for the global energy transition, the forum will zoom in on this fuel and in the technologies that propel its implementation into industrial processes. Recent data published by the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) showed that Mexico’s natural gas production has decreased drastically in the past decades, while its dependency on power production through US-imported natural gas has grown exponentially in recent years. Mexico’s energy security and the opportunity to boost the national natural gas industry through non-conventional sources are therefore fertile ground for discussion.

Moreover, as a highly relevant player in the international arena, Mexico’s role and commitment to combat climate change by achieving its decarbonization goals have also spurred discussion. If Mexico is to remain competitive, strategies that strengthen the country’s natural gas infrastructure, the implementation of new technologies and incentives for further ESG policies that drive the energy transition must become priorities for the sector’s agenda. During Mexico Energy Forum 2022 ECHO, key stakeholders will share their insight 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.
