Mexican Energy Leaders

Over the past 3 years Mexican Energy Leaders has become the major meeting for both Mexican and international renewable energy experts and one of the preferred networking occasions. The event plays host to project developers, construction and technology companies, energy utilities, governmental and scientific institutions, EPCs, investors, and energy lawyers representing renewable energy companies from Mexico, US, Canada, Chile, Germany, UK, China, India, Brazil, and other markets who meet to discuss the new opportunities opened after major reforms on energy.

Over 60% of the conference participants attends the conference year on year, including strong terms from SENER, CRE, SEMARNAT, SENER, CFE, Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público, and representatives of the governments of the following states: Tamaulipas, Yucatán, Oaxaca, Sonora, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Zacatecas, Estado de México EDOMEX, and Nuevo León.

This year Mexican Energy Leaders will offer even larger expo space and more networking time and include companies representing biomass and waste management sectors. Experts on energy generation, transmission, distribution, asset optimisation, software solutions, climate change, sustainability managers, seasoned risk mitigation experts, hotel chain owners, mining companies, cement industry, and many more have been carefully selected and invited to take part in the event.
