The Mexican energy course is about to be defined in the following weeks. This week, President Commissioner of CNH, Juan Carlos Zepeda presented an early resignation. On the other hand, CRE’s President Commisionner, Guillermo García stated that he will continue leading the regulatory institution until 2023.
Off-takers also highlighted its commitment to the clean energy industry. DeAcero and Fisterra Energy will start the construction of a 250MW combined cycle plant, and Bimbo stands out as the first company to issue CELs on a distributed generation basis.
From an international outlook, companies such as AES Corporation and Tesla also incentivize the industry’s growth. The first one by stating ambitious renewable generation goals by 2030 and the second one by decreasing its technology cost. Renewable energy was a pressing issue on the midterm elections in the US’ agenda, with some controversial results, but despite this, new technology innovations in storage such as Energy Vault’s proposal could represent an important shift.
