With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC organized a technical workshop with the Mexican Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) on generation interconnection. The Interconnection Technical Workshop aimed to educate Mexican officials on U.S. regulatory frameworks, with emphasis on best practices and pitfalls to avoid. The workshop intended to support CRE and others as Mexico designs, implements and applies regulatory instruments to interconnect power plants with load centers. A well-designed regulation will facilitate the efficient operation of the grid, improved energy security and ease integration of renewables and other clean energy generation resources.
