Prospects for Solar in Mexico continue to prosper

Government and industry to unite in Mexico City in May to discuss how to drive forward the solar market.

"Most of the world future energy scenarios recently published show excellent prospects for the development of grid-connected solar power in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Mexico and Chile show the best solar project prospects due to their exceptional solar energy resources that shall drive several of the first large scale solar projects in LAC in the next 5-10 years" Arnaldo Vieira de Carvalho, Inter-American Development Bank
