What's Next for Gas and Electricity?

9:00 - 10:30 a.m.
Friday, June 6th, 2014

1211 Connecticut Ave NW, Suite 510

We are delighted to host a discussion on the implications of Mexico’s energy reform for the natural gas and electricity sectors on Friday, June 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Inter-American Dialogue

Mexico is facing critical energy challenges. The country's energy reform and recently proposed implementing legislation are crucial for boosting the country’s natural gas production and supplying reliable, affordable electricity. Still, questions remain: Will Mexico see the projected boom in domestic gas production from shale and other resources? Will President Enrique Peña Nieto deliver on his promises to lower power prices and reduce subsidies? Will renewable energy developers have sufficient incentives for investment?

We are pleased that Horacio Cuevas, an energy regulatory expert with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and Nicolas Puga, a partner with Bates White Economic Consulting who advises electric utilities, will respond to these and other questions and engage in an exchange with participants.
