As Mexico's energy sector strives to expand, there is a growing need for investment to fund more oil and shale gas exploration, pipelines to transport and import gas, and a shift in the electricity matrix towards more natural gas and renewable fuels. More opportunities are expected for private investment in Mexican energy - with or without a reform to the state monopoly in the oil industry. Pemex and the CFE will continue to place debt on international markets to finance themselves. Meanwhile, segments of power generation are already open to private capital. New instruments traded on the BMV, some of them backed by US-regulated securities, are attractive for domestic and foreign investment in conventional, cleaner and renewable energy in Mexico. A new instrument for energy and infrastructure is also expected to be launched later this year as Mexican development banks look to up their activity on the stock exchange.
INCLUDED IN THIS MONTH'S SERIES:
The new emphasis for power generation is to shift away from fuel oil and move towards cleaner and renewable fuels. Fossil fuels, which currently account for 80.6% percent of power generation in the country, must be reduced to a maximum of 65% of even greater power output by 2024.
Mexican capital markets
The continuing rise of the stock index, expanding trading volumes and the growing diversification of investment instruments are turning the BMV into a favorite site for operations to finance energy investments.
This segment of the energy market is poised for growth and power company CFE projects that the national grid will increase its reliance on renewable fuels to 27% by 2026.
