Guillermo Zuñiga, commissioner of Mexico Energy Regulatory Commission, will keynote the upcoming Renewables Rush executive energy conference in San Francisco on April 5. Mexico is looking to tap into renewables expertise as it dramatically ramps up its owns solar resources 25-fold in coming years, and increases its wind generation five-fold, according to Energy Times.
The Renewables Rush event will explore California’s massive commitment to the greening of its electricity sector and the impact it will have on utilities and large energy consumers. Other utilities across the nation will be affected by California's experience and the evolution of the energy industry as well, and certainly that will be discussed. Held at the Fairmont San Francisco Hotel, the conference will feature utility and legislative representatives as they discuss the challenges of electric power generation, delivery and usage in the new "renewables rush."
