Coldwell mentioned that Latin America features different factors that complicate the renewable energy industry, such as electric energy access in remote areas, diversification of renewable resources, and the regional electric system interconnection.

He concluded remarking that the recent so called “energetic reform” will increase the number of electrical energy suppliers and will help the development of a “clean energy” industry in Mexico.
