Renewable Energy in Mexico under the Energy Reform
Recorded on Tuesday, February 3, 2015:
1:00 - 2:30 pm Eastern US Time
The Mexican energy reform presents new opportunities and challenges for renewable energy. While Mexico has a goal to obtain 35% of its power from clean energy, that term is broader than renewable energy and there are no set-asides as of yet for renewable energy. On the other hand, projects which applied for generating permits prior to the effective date of the reform retain certain advantages. Moreover, the reforms open the market for generators to supply eligible customers and establishes CENACE as an independent system operator, wholesale market operator, and transmission planner. The new guidelines for clean energy certificates are a major incentive for renewables, although load serving entities will not be required to obtain those certificates until 2018. The reforms also provide incentives for distributed renewable generation.
The panel will address the following topics:
- What entities are eligible to obtain clean energy certificates and how are they earned?
- What entities are required to obtain clean energy certifications and how is the requirement determined?
- How will the market for clean energy certificates work?
- How does the energy bank and postage stamp transmission work and will new generators be able to take advantage of them?
- What are the opportunities for renewable generation to contract directly with customers?
- How will remote renewable generators gain access to transmission?
Please join us for an enlightening discussion by some of the most distinguished legal experts in the field.

How It Works
Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00
A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.
By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.
If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.
CANCELLATION, REFUNDS & CREDITS
Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
