Latin American Program

Ambassador Carlos Pascual offered a keynote address that placed the regional development of renewable energies in the context of U.S. global energy policy. He described how growing energy consumption in emerging market countries requires the development of new energy resources. He suggested that while shale oil and gas, which are plentiful in the Americas, could help meet growing demand, the development of renewable energy will also be necessary.

The Mexico Institute’s Senior Advisor for its Renewable Energy Initiative, Duncan Wood, then launched a series of new reports entitled RE-Energizing the Border: Renewable Energy, Green Jobs and Border Infrastructure. The reports demonstrate the very significant potential for the development of wind, biofuel, and solar energy resources in the northern Mexico border states.
