During the week 26-30 October, more than 200 experts met in Mexico City at nine thematic workshops with the aim to discuss current status, visions for 2030 and the barriers that exist in developing Mexico’s EE strategy.
Together with GIZ and IEA, the Danish Energy Agency supports the Mexican Ministry of Energy (SENER) and the Mexican National Commission for Efficient Use of Energy (CONUEE) in developing Mexico’s first EE strategy. The cooperation comprise of two parts, the first of which consist of a thorough overview of existing experiences and engagement of public stakeholders through workshop participation.
This work and the upcoming work for the next month was presented when nine thematic workshops took place in Mexico City 26-30 October. The thematic workshops focused on industry, power generation and distribution, residential buildings, commercial and public buildings, sustainable cities, transport, financing, agriculture, and data and modelling.
In the participatory process, a total of more than 200 experts from public authorities, academia, NGOs, business organizations, and private companies met and discussed current status of EE focus in the thematic area, visions for 2020 and 2030, important factors to reach the visions and the barriers.
From now till January, a virtual open process is taking place among all participants, and additional relevant stakeholders, identified by the participants are also included. At the January sessions, the results of the process will be presented as a more consolidated agreement to what the most important policies and measures to include in the strategy are.
Separate work is taking place on data and modelling, which will lead to a more detailed impression of the EE effect of the policies in the Mexican context.
