Energy transition is not a fad. 

It is a bridge used to define what should be, the journey from a fossil fuels energy base to a net-zero global commitment outcome by 2050. Scientists, academics, companies, industry leaders and the majority of stakeholders; are in agreement that zero-carbon energy sources -or clean energy-, are at the tip of the spear in-hand with renewable sources when it comes to climate change.

Yet, as real as this strategic endeavor is, gazing towards a clean future; todays reality entails that oil and gas are the centric cog of electric power, responsible for up keeping mobility and industry mass production in the world. Fact: no commercial aircraft as of today is able to fly powered by any energy source other than fossil-fuels. 

Mexico was one of the first countries to sign and adhere to the Kyoto-protocol back in 1998, under the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change, so as to limit greenhouse gases emissions. A pioneer. Twenty two years later the Governments current strategy, emphasizes on crude oil and natural gas while putting new investments in renewables and clean energy on hold.

Join us as ANZMEX brings this important dialogue to you, under our exclusive Energy Debate format in its 17th edition. Expert panelists from all sides of the energy matrix, will carry out a candid conversation attesting to their “get real” experiences.
