The Americas: Mexico

Facilitated Dialogue on Market Restructuring & Renewable Energy

Dates: June 10-12, 2013
Location: Mexico City, Mexico

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC organized a Facilitated Dialogue with Mexico's Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) to provide assistance as Mexico considers unbundling within the electricity market. The Mexican Ministry of Energy (SENER) developed with CRE a proposal on competitive electricity markets and the benefits of reform and competition, including unbundling of the vertically integrated utilities, encouraging competition in generation, transmission and distribution, and market monitoring. The proposal included mechanisms for the protection of renewables and renewable energy investments and was submitted to the Mexican legislature in the fall of 2013.
