The state administration presided by Governor Francisco Vega de Lamadrid, has a strong commitment to the promotion of savings and the efficient use of energy. “This administration also actively promotes clean energy projects for our state,” said Secretary Carlo Bonfante Olache, during the inauguration of the third edition of Expo Energy Forum, held at the CEART Convention Center in Mexicali, BC.
This Forum brings together the supply of service providers, materials and institutions seeking to provide solutions to increase energy efficiency, featuring lectures aimed to address the general aspects of the Energy Reform, the characteristics of the Mexican electricity market and the changes that will take effect in 2016, along with the social impact study and public consultation to be undertaken by those who wish to obtain permits for energy generation projects.
Meanwhile, Director of the State Energy Commission, Francisco Javier Valdez Orduño stressed out the importance of recognizing the industries that show their leadership by performing actions on behalf of environmental care and energy efficiency. Valdez Orduño announced the Kellog’s company was the winner of the State Prize for Energy Efficiency, assessed by a committee constituted by institutions such as the UABC, Polytechnic University of Baja California, CETYS, and the CFE Energy Savings Trust (FIDE).
Ulises Celaya Pino, CFE Divisional Manager for Baja California, said that the agency permanently seeks to promote saving measures among residential, commercial and industrial consumers, the latter representing 52% of energy sales, so in coordination with FIDE diagnoses are made and consultations are offered, having achieved significant success stories.
As part of the organization committee, the inauguration was also presided by the President of Canacintra Mexicali, Juan Ignacio Gallego Guizar Topete and Regional Manager of FIDE Ruben Bejarano. The event was also attended by Municipal official Alejandro Gudino Flores (representing Mayor Jaime Diaz Ochoa), and by Marcos Valenzuela Ortiz, Director of Market Management at the National Center for Energy Control (CENACE).
