Mexican utilities will invest more than $2 billion a year over the next decade upgrading the nation's energy infrastructure thanks to a smart grid push by national regulator Comision Reguladora de Energia. "Mexico has all of the key characteristics to develop into a robust smart grid market," said Ben Gardner, president of Northeast Group. "Its government is working on developing a concrete regulatory framework and political leaders are looking to reduce electricity prices and incorporate small-scale generators. Smart grid infrastructure will be necessary to enable these changes."
