Stakeholder Forum - Mexico National Forum on Renewable Energy Regulation: An Approach to Auctions

Dates: March 6-7, 2012
Location: Mexico City, Mexico

With support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), NARUC held the National Regulatory Forum on Renewable Energy in Mexico: An Approach to Auctions.

The Mexican Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) looks to auctions as a strategy to remove barriers to renewable energy investments, thereby complementing existing renewable energy schemes and creating a more comprehensive regulatory framework to support renewable energy integration. The forum brought together stakeholders from across the energy sector to share lessons learned from approaches to renewable energy auctions in the U.S., Guatemala, and Peru and also facilitate a dialogue on renewable energy challenges in Mexico.
