Mexico’s electric grid, long inadequate for a growing nation, now is surging 3.7 percent a year – and will continue to do so for 15 years, said a top government official.
Guillermo Zúñiga, commissioner of Mexico’s Energy Regulatory Commission, said that market reforms have thrown open his nation of 125 million to major electric grid development.
“The challenge is to show the world,” Zúniga told the Energy Times' Renewables Rush conference in San Francisco. “The new framework is for the long haul. There is demand for energy. The challenge is how to attract investment.”
