Anne Watson, the Director of Solar Power Mexico claimed, “It is well recognized that Mexico’s vast solar resource provides the country potential to become a global market leader.” She went on to say, “Whilst the government has enacted policies to facilitate development and is presently undertaking country wide solar mapping research, a key barrier is still considered to be lack of government tariffs to support large scale projects. Solar Power Mexico will unite key international players with government officials and investors to discuss the latest case studies and resolve how best to drive the industry forward.”
