Supporting renewable energy in Latin America
Gerardo Barajas, Portfolio Director, Informa Markets, Mexico City
MIREC and AIREC are two of the largest renewable energy shows in Mexico and Argentina. UBM recently acquired both events, recognising a growing market which focuses on the development of renewable energy.
We help people navigate the complexities of financing, investment and regulatory landscapes, sometimes in quite challenging economic circumstances. Our content is key – we focus on attracting the highest calibre speakers available so that we can maintain a reputation for bringing the important decision-makers together in one place. We provide attendees with a space for education and also debate, where people can be honest about the challenges.
By better understanding agendas, and helping others to understand the landscape, we believe we’re helping more renewable energy plants get built. Some people who install renewable energy systems in Mexico, supplied with innovative finance models, have never had electricity before! We’re proud to be supporting the Latin American energy revolution – our events are helping to drive the sustainability agenda, supporting the development of government policy, highlighting key opportunities and encouraging investment.
“MIREC is an excellent forum with high level participants who share experience and views on how to best address the significant renewable energy opportunities that Mexico’s programme offers."
