Ongoing tensions between the U.S. and China have prompted many companies to relocate their operations to Mexico. This “nearshoring” phenomenon has resulted in over $9 billion in investments into Mexico between October 2022 to June of 2023.   Whether this trend will continue depends in part on Mexico’s ability to meet the energy needs of multinational corporations in both existing and new industrial regions throughout the country.  Mexico generates about 70 percent of its energy from fossil fuels, while renewables, nuclear power and other low-emission sources provide the rest, according to government figures. While the Mexican Supreme Court has ruled key parts of the government’s energy policy unconstitutional, it is still being applied.  Many environmentalists and renewable energy experts have been focused on Mexico’s next presidential elections in two years, hoping for an administration friendlier to renewable power. Guaranteeing access to reliable, affordable, and renewable energy is essential to attract nearshoring investment. This panel of experts will discuss the current state of Mexico’s energy market, the disputes that have arisen under the current market and the likely impact of Mexico’s energy transition on disputes that have a connection to Mexico.
