Mexico Energy outlook 2021

Date: 11 December 2020, Friday
Time: 9am CT, 3pm GMT

2021 promises to be an important year for Mexico’s energy markets, with the mid-term elections offering a referendum on the first two years of the government of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and his revisionist energy policy. Away from the politics, energy demand is expected to return to growth as the country recovers from the global coronavirus pandemic and economic downturn, with gas imports from the US and power demand potentially reaching fresh record highs through the year.

To discuss the outlook for 2021 for both Mexico’s gas and power markets join ICIS Mexico expert Claudia Espinosa, as well as invited speakers Federico Muciño from Epscon and James Bevan of Criterion Research on 11 December at 9am CT/Mexico time.

Speakers:
Claudia Espinosa, Editor, ICIS Mexico Energy Report
Federico Muciño Garcia, CEO, Epscon
James Bevan, Senior Editor and Energy Analyst, Criterion Research
