Intersolar Mexico, the international exhibition and conference for the solar industry, successfully concluded its debut simultaneously with the 26th edition of THE GREEN EXPO® last week in Mexico City’s Pepsi Center/World Trade Center. The co-located exhibitions attracted nearly 12,000 attendees from 31 countries and 214 exhibitors making it the largest gathering of professionals in Mexico for international manufacturers and distributors looking to meet buyers in the fields of solar, renewable energy and cleantech.
Latin America has a new solar star: Mexico. The country currently has 4 GW of total installed PV capacity, and overtook Chile as Latin America’s largest solar market by the end of 2018. With more than 40 million electricity customers, growing demand for power, and significant potential untapped renewable energy resources, Mexico is well positioned to expand its power generation from renewables. The energy reform legislation also reiterated Mexico’s aggressive target to generate 35% of its power from clean sources by 2024 and imposed interim targets to reach that goal.
The Mexican solar industry is on the rise. This was clearly reflected by decent traffic on the show floor and well attended conference sessions, workshops and technical trainings at Intersolar Mexico’s debut. During five high-level sessions and five technical workshops and seminars more than 35 speakers provided their crucial insights on all aspects of the Mexican PV and solar thermal markets. At the heart of the show floor, attendees packed seats at the Innovation & Application stage to gain an understanding of new technology solutions hitting the market. Close cooperation with the three largest national solar associations, Asociación Mexicana de Energía Solar (ASOLMEX), Asociación Nacional de Energía Solar (ANES) and Fabricantes Mexicanos en las Energías Renovables (FAMERAC), and international partner organizations like Solar Energy International, SolarPower Europe, German-Mexican Chamber of Commerce (CAMEXA) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) ensured that all aspects of the industry were present during three intense days.
“We are more than happy about the positive resonance of Intersolar Mexico’s debut and are looking forward to establishing the world’s leading exhibition series for the solar industry and its partners here in Mexico,” Dr. Florian Wessendorf, managing director of Solar Promotion International and Daniel Strowitzki, CEO at Freiburg Management and Marketing International, the international organizers of Intersolar Mexico, jointly state. “The presence of Intersolar in Mexico is a great happening to push the Mexican solar industry forward. It has also been a magnificent opportunity to be up to date about the latest developments in the global solar market,” Daniel García, president of FAMERAC, added.
Strong Growth ahead – Move to Centro Citibanamex
To accommodate the demand of the emerging Mexican energy market, Intersolar Mexico together with the co-located THE GREEN EXPO® and AQUATECH Mexico will move to a new venue in 2020: Centro Citibanamex, a world-class convention and exhibition center in the heart of Mexico City. At the new venue, Intersolar Mexico is expected to triple in terms of size in comparison to its premiere event at Pepsi Center in 2019.
