Mexico's energy reform: Foundation,...

Tuesday, Feb 14, 2017
5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
66-110 - 25 Ames Street Cambridge, MA 02139
In this talk, Melgar will outline the historic energy reform Mexico approved at the constitutional level in December 2013 and will provide an update on the implementation and challenges ahead. This reform, referred to as an energy revolution, aims at increasing Mexico???s energy security while mitigating climate change. It entails the creation of energy markets in the hydrocarbons and power sectors and the participation of private investors in all the activities of the energy sector. The implementation is moving ahead with bidding processes in the upstream, as well as in the power sector. Melgar will address the challenges Mexico faces as it consolidates its new energy model.
