Every other Friday is Hi-NRG night at the Patrick Miller club in Colonia Roma, Mexico City. The night celebrates a type of disco with an electronic sound and a high-speed beat that was popular worldwide in the 80's. Although the form's worldwide popularity has ebbed, in Mexico City it is still alive, and its fans continue dancing to it in an almost religious way. In 1983 Robeto Devesa, a Mexican DJ better known as Patrick Miller, started organizing parties in downtown Mexico City's Journalists Club. He imported the latest hits before anyone else, and the parties became mythical. Patrick turned into a character and a legend, adored by fans who danced weekly to the Hi-NRG rhythms; and his name became synonymous with epic raves. This is why Patrick Miller's followers, who call each other Pa...

Daniel Ricciardo and Carlos Sainz bring a breath-taking demonstration of Formula 1 power to the historic heart of Mexico City. 150,000 F1-mad fans packed every available inch of the city's central Zocalo square – and the surrounding balconies – to cheer on Daniel and Carlos as they blasted around a specially constructed course hugging the perimeter of the vast plaza in a pair of Red Bull Racing RB7's.
The pyramids of Teotihuacán are a must-see when you travel to Mexico City. Thirty minutes outside of Ciudad de Mexico, you'll venture back in time to the ancient world of the Aztecs. Join us as we give you a tour of this world-renowned wonder. About Jose and Thania: Jose realized he wanted to be a filmmaker when he parents gifted him a Lego Studio Set. He wrote stories and shot Oscar-worthy movies starring his Legos. It was his first taste at storytelling and filmmaking, and he was immediately hooked. Then he met Thania, and he realized she shared his same passions for storytelling and adventure. She told her parents that she wanted to travel the world instead of having a quinceañera. She convinced them it was way cheaper than a quince party (which is true), and she flew off to Europe. ...

Mexico as an emerging economy is in desperate need of new power lines and a stable energy supply. One of the most important investors in this area is Siemens. Six months ago the company opened a new facility near Queretaro, north of Mexico City. It already has a workforce of 500 new staff, and that number will grow by 2015.The foundation stone for a second building has already been laid. The plant develops and constructs high-voltage components for the global market. The order books are full, and there has been no fallout here yet from the crisis in Europe or the USA's struggling economy.
(https://www.24hoursofreality.org/) In Mexico, the prickly pear cactus is a staple of everyday life, appearing in everything from tacos to medicines. And thanks to a couple innovators at the startup Suema who developed a plant turning cactus waste into biogas, it could be a staple of the country’s low-carbon energy strategy.

The prickly pear cactus is such a powerful symbol in Mexico that they put it smack in the middle of the national flag. It was considered sacred by the ancient Aztecs, and modern-day Mexicans eat it, drink it, and even use it in medicines and shampoos. Now scientists have come up with a new use for the bright green plant: producing renewable energy.
Ian Law is Renewable Choice's in-house expert on emerging markets for renewable energy in Mexico. ------ In January of 2016, the Mexican government began the process of deregulating its electricity market, previously mandated by a law (Ley de la Industria Electrica) passed in August, 2014. Until this year, the state-owned utility CFE owned the rights to all transmission, distribution, and nearly 50% of all generation assets within the country. With new reform, the electricity market in Mexico will open to competitive distribution and generation as more developers enter the space to sell electricity to CFE and other Electric Service Providers (ESPs) via the newly established wholesale marketplace. For commercial, industrial, and institutional (C&I) customers with high electricity consump...
In September 2017, southern Mexico was rocked by a magnitude 8.1 earthquake – the worst in more than a century. Widespread infrastructure damage included the generating station supplying power to the Ing. Antonio Dovali Jaime Refinery near Salina Cruz in the state of Oaxaca. APR Energy provided Pemex with a fast-power solution that would enable its biggest refinery to resume operation while the permanent generating station was being repaired.
As Mexico rolls out its energy reforms, investors have already shown an appetite for infrastructure projects—from natural gas pipelines to wind farms. Out of 742 private equity funds focused in Latin America, 180 are looking to energy, in particular, said Bloomberg's José Enrique Arrioja. Case in point is First Reserve and Blackrock's March 2015 acquirement of an equity stake in the Los Ramones gas pipeline, the largest of its kind in Mexico. However, while First Reserve's Adi J. Blum expressed excitement in Mexico's natural gas potential and greater connectivity with the United States, he cautioned that energy consumers may not see the benefits of lower electricity prices for several years. Panelists also discussed renewable energy projects in the works alongside Mexico's requirements of...
Mexico's government will open bidding for 16 major infrastructure projects worth $4.9 billion. It's all part of sweeping energy reforms in the country's growing electric energy sector. CCTV America's Franc Contreras reports from Mexico City.

SolarCity, the California-based solar energy company chaired by Elon Musk and run by his cousins, is the largest single installer of U.S. residential solar power systems in the U.S., owning 34 percent of the market in 2014 according to GTM Research. So it’s kind of a big deal that the company just entered the largest solar market in Latin America, Mexico. This week, SolarCity announced they’d purchased Mexico’s ILIOSS, a company that specializes in installing solar on commercial and industrial projects. Electricity demand there is increasing, and electricity prices remain high, meaning solar can be competitive with fossil fuels. http://fusion.net/story/178639/elon-musk-just-added-mexico-to-his-solar-power-map/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=/feed/ http://www.wochit.com This ...

Alejandro Herrera was commuting two hours each way into Mexico City for architecture school when he turned a vacant rooftop into a tiny home in the city center. In the heart of the very desirable Roma Norte district his new home measured just 42 square meters (450 square feet), but it opened to a garden terrace of the same size. The initial home was built with a steel frame and plywood and glass panels (to keep costs down). Seven years later, the exterior had deteriorated with the weather and Herrera decided to create Mexico’s first Passivhaus (the very demanding energy efficiency standard from Germany) to cut energy costs. With a tight insulating envelope, the current home uses two-thirds less energy. Inhab: https://www.inhab.mx
