ICIS Webinar: Bringing transparency to Mexico’s power market: Summarizing the results from the first year of ICIS power price surveys

Mexico’s power market image

As the results of Mexico’s first mid-term power auction show, confidence in the MEM short term market continues to grow at a slow pace, with the majority of the bilateral trade confined to longer term contracts.

In an attempt to bring transparency to the power sector, ICIS launched the first power market price survey in March 2017, with similar surveys being held on a monthly basis ever since. In this bilingual webinar, ICIS Mexico energy experts James Fowler and Claudia Espinosa will review the results of the first year of surveys, analysing how responses evolved in line with increased participation and the changing circumstances of the power market.
