Facilitated Dialogue on Market Restructuring & Renewable Energy

Dates: October 14-16, 2013
Location: Mexico City, Mexico

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC organized a Facilitated Dialogue with the Mexican Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) to provide further assistance as Mexico moved forward with preparations for unbundling within it’s the electricity market including unbundling and opening of the market and potential expansion of CRE’s authority, especially in the tariff process.

The main objectives of the Facilitated Dialogue were to elaborate on market reform options and corresponding mechanisms for the protection of renewables and renewable energy investments. The Dialogue also aimed to provide further consensus building among the key players of the reform — CRE, the Ministry of Energy, and the Secretariat of Finance and Public Credit — on the objectives and necessary criterion for implementing effective energy reform.
