Webinar: The Importance of Reliable Clean Energy and Infrastructure for Mexico to Realize its Potential for North American “Nearshoring”
December 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree
Join us for a timely presentation and discussion of our new report The Importance of Reliable Clean Energy and Infrastructure for Mexico to Realize its Potential for North American “Nearshoring”.
Featuring: Veronica Irastorza, Principal at The Brattle Group and John D. Padilla, Managing Director, IPD Latin America
Moderated by: Jeremy M. Martin, Vice President, Energy & Sustainability, Institute of the Americas
As our report discusses, nearshoring is here, no longer just a possibility, but starting to have a tangible impact. Further regionalizing North America’s supply chains through nearshoring helps to reduce dependence on far-flung trade routes, minimizes delays, and achieves greater certainty and control over supply and manufacturing. Electricity has proven to be a particularly complicated challenge given the current state of electricity infrastructure, supply-demand dynamics, and the government policies currently being pursued. As we discuss, it may not only be an additional cost, but a potential deal-breaker for potential nearshoring companies.
The webinar will examine the specific challenges and potential energy-related solutions that will help determine just how successful nearshoring in Mexico ultimately becomes.
