158 MIREC.png

If you’re familiar at all with the Mexico market, then you’ll have heard of the Mexico International Renewable Energy Congress, now know universally as Mirec. Like many of you, I’ll be headed to Mexico City next week to participate in what is essentially the SPI of Mexico, so thought it a good time to tell you both about the conference and a bit about why you might be interested in Mexico’s market at all. Today’s guests are Jamie Dowswell - Dir. of Programs for MIRECweek, Jonathan Pinzon - Dir. of Gov’t Affairs for Invenergy in Mexico, and Carlos Abad - Head of Latam Markets for Chint Power Systems.

If you’ve listened to previous Know Before You Go episodes (last year’s Intersolar & SPI, then you know we highlight both what the show is about, but also how you can optimize your time on the show floor and in the conference sessions. Today we spend much less time on tips & tricks for showing up well at the conference, so if you are indeed interested in those, I strongly recommend you go back to the archives and listen to the SPI episode from September which is chock full of tidbits on how to make the most of any tradeshow.
