COBENEFITS kicks off activities in Mexico

Mex­i­co City, Mexico

Mex­i­co is in the midst of an ener­gy trans­for­ma­tion. Invest­ments in renew­able ener­gy are increas­ing rapid­ly, but more effort is need­ed to achieve the country’s RE and EE tar­gets. This is why the COBENEFITS project has part­nered up with GIZ to expand its activ­i­ties to Mex­i­co. On Octo­ber 9, 2018, project direc­tor Sebas­t­ian Hel­gen­berg­er and research asso­ciate Héc­tor Rodríguez Chávez met with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Min­istry of Envi­ron­ment and the Min­istry of Ener­gy of Mex­i­co to kick off the project.

We are now look­ing for­ward to the COBENEFITS work­shop that will be held in Mex­i­co City at the end of Octo­ber. This work­shop is designed to build own­er­ship between dif­fer­ent stake­hold­ers and will set pri­or­i­ties for co-ben­e­fit assess­ments in Mexico.
