CONSOLIDATION OF ENERGY SECTOR TO MEET UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE
DEVELOPMENT GOALS

The development of the energy sector contributes to energy independence (sovereignty). Starting with the long-term bidding processes, Mexico acquired the cheapest renewable energy in the world and is now ranked among the nations with the greatest potential for renewable energy.

11:30 – 12:00

BREAK

12:00 – 13:15

RENEWABLE ENERGY: THE FIRST 100 DAYS OF THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION

Understand how and why the prices in the bidding processes and Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) have evolved is a topic that generates interest in the domestic and international electricity market. This panel will present relevant data and a comparative analysis of the indicators of the Mexican electricity market and those of other countries.

13:15 – 14:30

STATUS OF THE FIRST STAGE OF THE WHOLESALE ELECTRICITY MARKET

Understand how and why the prices in the bidding processes and Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) have evolved is a topic that generates interest in the domestic and international electricity market. This panel will present relevant data and a comparative analysis of the indicators of the Mexican electricity market and those of other countries.

14:30 -16:00

LUNCH

16:00 – 17:00

NATIONAL ELECTRICITY SYSTEM TRANSMISSION GRID: CRUCIAL FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

One of the challenges facing the wind energy industry is the availability of the electricity grid to transport energy. The concentration of many projects in the same area without developing the National Electricity Transmission Grid poses a risk for industry.

17:00 – 18:00

WIND ENERGY SECTOR, WELL-BEING AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Developing the wind energy sector involves working very closely with communities, which often includes indigenous populations. Gradually, the sector and communities have established a harmonious, long-term relationship that respects and reinforces local customs, language and culture. This panel will address the challenges and different elements of linking models that value the communities’ worldview, respect and encourage the preservation of their language(s) – with respect to indigenous communities – and promote economic activity, health and cultural activities that contribute to well-being and sustainable development.

9:00 – 10:30

FUNDING COMMERCIAL PROJECTS

This panel will address the challenges faced by banks funding commercial projects and how companies have dealt with this challenge. An analysis will take an in-depth look at mitigating risks, and will present strategies to protect investments from volatile wholesale prices and will provide experience-based options to understand how to approach a long-term view of energy prices in an evolving energy environment.

10:30 – 12:00

INNOVATION FOR THE MEXICAN MARKET:
LESSONS LEARNED AND LONG-TERM OUTLOO

Technology experts will discuss the results, innovation and adaptation to Mexico and its market, as well as technical solutions relating to both logistics and operations for the latest generation of machinery of over 4MW.

12:00 – 12:30

BREAK

12:30 – 14:00

TAX PANEL: INCOME TAX LAWS IN MUNICIPALITIES

Municipalities where the wind energy farms have been developed charge operating fees. However, in some cases these charges hinder the viability of clean energy projects. Experts will analyze the proposals that balance municipal charges with the services offered.

14:00 – 16:00

LUNCH

16:00 – 17:00

CERTAINTY IN PROJECT CONTRACTS

Experts will analyze the characteristics that will make the market more profitable, depending on the different types of contracts, the evaluation of the bidding processes and the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) operations. How are the shortages or surpluses handled in a contract? What risks does an offtaker assume when entering into a supply contract based exclusively on a wind energy project? What is the forecast value that would avoid exposure to real time pricing? Where does Mexico stand regarding wind energy forecasting and supply?

17:00 – 18:00

THE GLOBAL TREND TOWARD ELECTRIC TRANSPORTATION

The role of wind energy is to support the decarbonization of other sectors of the economy that require a great deal of energy. This session will discuss how the wind energy sector can contribute to building a stronger economy, a cleaner environment and a more sustainable energy system.
