The Road to Energy Self Sufficiency
  1. Speaker
    Manuel Rodríguez
    President of the Energy Commission of the Chamber of Deputies

According to the 2019-2033 PRODESEN, Mexico will need an additional capacity of 35GW by 2024 to cope with the country’s rising electricity demand. With long-term electricity auctions out of the equation and the Wholesale Electricity Market booming at its fastest pace, AMLO’s administration has the responsibility of strengthening CFE while keeping the doors open for private investment.

The Future Of Natural Gas in Mexico's Energy Mix

    Ramón Basanta
    CEO at ATCO Energía

In 3Q18, Mexico produced 2.7bcfs/d and imported 5.2bcfs/d of natural gas. With a strong gas-based electricity matrix, energy demand needs to find its balance between US imports and developing a national production and transportation infrastructure. While renegotiations with gas transporters were successful, there is still much to be done to ensure energy security.

With the absence of an auction mechanism that fixes energy prices in the long-term run, companies either get creative or get out of business. While the wholesale market unveiled a pool of options including short, medium and long-term PPAs, virtual PPAs and even full-merchant deals, project structuring needs to be flexible enough to seize these opportunities.
