Mexico’s electricity system could benefit from the correct implementation of Energy Storage Systems (ESS) and the development of technologies for the penetration of renewable energy. This was discussed at the North Capital Forum 2023 (NCF23) in Mexico City.
The North Capital Forum 2023, an event where the principles of the North American approach, a perspective that combines individual and collective values, were promoted, was held from October 4 to 6. AES Mexico participated in the forum as one of the sponsors of the event.
NCF23 brought together leaders from the public and private sectors to discuss various crucial topics, such as the energy industry and its evolution in the region. One of the central themes is the growing demand and evolution of reliable and sustainable energy. EDCs play a crucial role in this context.
AES participated in the panel Electricity (with Energy Storage): The Integral Technology Resource in the North American Power Grid. The power generation company shared its vision and experience in energy storage globally, according to a statement to which NotiPress had access. Jaime Burguete, vice president of international business development, showed success stories in the implementation of its technology in the electricity systems of other countries.
The SAE facilitates the carbonization of the electrical system reliably. It also maximizes the use of existing transmission lines, allowing more renewable energy to be transported to consumption centers.
John Zahurancik, president of Fluence spoke on the panel about his experience with Ultrastack. This is an advanced energy storage product designed to transform the way the world’s transmission and distribution grids operate. It addresses some of the main challenges, such as weakening system stability, grid infrastructure congestion, and low asset visibility.
Other panel participants included Pablo Zarate, senior director of FTI Consulting; Carla Medina, president of the Mexican Solar Energy Association; and Kristyn Annis, vice president of Energy Storage Canada.
