General Overview

After two successful Mexico Energy Summits, BNamericas Events has decided to split the event in two: In 2015 we will hold the Mexico Oil & Gas Summit and the Mexico Electric Power Summit. We based the decision on the strong momentum observed in Mexico’s energy market following the approval of the energy reform and its secondary laws. Mexico’s generation park is expected to grow by 55,000MW in the next 15 years, given the need for new capacity and the replacement of obsolete units.

Under the new scenario, the Mexican power sector enters a process of open competition in the area of generation, creating business opportunities for both operators and suppliers. Under the new rules of the game, state-run CFE will need to speed up the revamp of its generation units, while private sector generators and large consumers will have to identify where and how to carry out investments and long-term supply contracts.


This Mexico Electric Power Summit is the platform to discuss the future of the electric power sector and identify major business opportunities in the country.

One of the key points is the supply of natural gas for power generation. Mexico’s power agenda in the coming years will be dominated by issues such as supply sources, transport and storage infrastructure, changes to the legal framework of supply contracts, and increased gas demand for reinjection in oil wells.

Other important issues to be discussed at the summit include transmission infrastructure modernization, the future of renewable energy and nuclear power, and generation opportunities arising from future shale gas development in Mexico.
