    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.

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 Patricios, have managed to keep this style of music alive, despite its being consider old fashioned in the countries in which it originated. In the early 90's, Devesa decided to search for a permanent home to foster his sounds, lights, and lasers. Thus he founded the Patrick Miller club, which opens its doors every Friday in Colonia Roma to let parishioners dance like the gods. We went with Jorge, better known as Padawan, to the house where he meets with his buddies—other members of the Banda Loca—before heading to their favorite club. Then we travelled with them to the Patrick Miller club, to better understand what makes Hi-NRG nights way more than just a regular disco party.

Tens of thousands of people have protested in the centre of Mexico City against President Enrique Pena Nieto's planned overhaul of the energy sector. Opposition leader Andres Lopez Obrador told the crowd to surround the Congress this week. Mr Pena Nieto says the plan to allow private investment in the oil and gas sector is needed to boost the economy. His approval ratings have slumped to their lowest since he took office a year ago. A recent opinion poll suggested Mr Pena Nieto's approval rating had fallen to 44%, eight percentage points lower than in July, with 48% of those polled disapproving of his administration. 'As long as it takes' "We will carry out the sieges we have agreed upon in the Senate, the Lower House and the local assemblies. I will be there for as long as it takes," Mr Lopez Obrador told thousands of protesters in Zocalo square. Sunday's protest gathered supporters of the defeated presidential candidate Mr Lopez Obrador as well as teachers and union members. If passed, the government's energy bill will encourage foreign and domestic investment in the industry. A source of national pride, Mexico's oil industry has been protected from private involvement for 75 years. The overhaul is part of wide-ranging structural reforms proposed by the Pact for Mexico alliance, led by President Pena Nieto. The broad alliance has already passed telecommunications reforms and a tax reform bill imposing new levies on junk food and soft drinks. Mr Pena Nieto also aims to boost government revenue by increasing the top rate of income tax. He has also passed education reforms which deeply angered some teachers' unions.

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 consumption in Mexico, this is outstanding news. The primary result of the reform will be the expanded capability to sign bilateral renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) directly with independent power producers in order to source electricity for Mexican operations. As the new wholesale market remains yet to be fully defined, however, the best opportunity for bilateral agreements can currently be found with renewable energy projects qualified under the self-supply regime, a regulatory structure only available to C&I customers through December 31st, 2016. Extensions for certain developer projects are currently being decided upon and may provide an expanded window for this opportunity. The primary benefits of participating in the self-supply regime rather than the new market are the significant reductions in costs, risk exposure, and operational limitations within its contracting structure. Three of these reductions are noted below: 1. The self-supply contract structure mimics a virtual net metering arrangement, allowing customers to realize the benefits of an agreed upon fixed price cost of energy at any time of day. Electricity produced by the renewable facility is delivered to the grid to be used in real-time, at which point CFE banks these fixed price energy credits to the buyer, to be applied when it is using energy. This allows consumers to be supplied with the benefits of their contract at all times, mitigating the price risk of intermittent generators like wind and solar. 2. The self-supply structure includes low fixed-cost wheeling charges, allowing C&I buyers to enter into a PPA with a renewable project located anywhere in the country. This contract structure removes the significant transmission risks that will apply to contracts in the new market scheme and allows companies flexibility in deciding to which facilities their contracted electricity is delivered. 3. C&I customers participating in the self-supply regime are relieved of the obligation to source a pre-determined percentage of electricity from clean energy through the purchase of tradeable Clean Energy Certificates (known as CELs), a mandate set to begin at 5% in 2018. As CELs are predicted to cost anywhere from USD$10-20, this represents an opportunity for significant avoided costs. Given the lack of predictability in CFE tariff prices, signing a self-supply agreement for a period of 10-20 years affords buyers the stability in outlook that is currently projected to save them money. Companies have been taking advantage of this limited opportunity in recent years, with GM signing a 34 MW deal to power its Mexico facilities with Enel in 2015. Because the PPA contract must be structured by the end of this year to take effect for the term, it is time to start negotiations now and see what the options are for securing renewable electricity and creating a valuable hedge for your energy spend.
