San Antonio Texas has a “Sister City” across the border, and tha happens to be Monterrey, Nuevo León.
And on Thursday June 2, it was officially announced that Monterrey will host the Border Energy Forum in February 2017; the announcement was made by the organizers and came as a big surprise for many.
The annual binational conference showcases the energy sector trends in both the United States and Mexico.
Nuevo Leon’s Director of Energy Eduardo Erhard and Asociacion de Empresarios Mexicanos Binational Energy Committee Chair Alejandra Bueno made the surprise announcement at the end of the AEM Binational Green Energy Forum.
Erhard told the Business Journal that Monterrey last hosted the forum in 2014 but noted that the city has since solidified itself as a natural gas hub in northern Mexico.
Houston-based Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMI) owns a cross-border pipeline that moves natural gas from the Rio Grande Valley to Monterrey while San Antonio-based Howard Energy Partners will soon begin construction to move natural gas from Laredo to Monterrey.
Although Nuevo Leon lags behind other states such as Oaxaca in renewables, Erhard said it is catching up quickly.
“There are several renewable projects coming,” Ehard said.
The city of El Paso, Texas played host to the first Border Energy Forum in 1994. San Antonio last hosted the forum in 2013.
