Solar Event Heavyweights in U.S., Germany, China to Announce New Partnership

The veteran leaders of Solar Power International (SPI), SNEC, and Deutsche Messe have announced a new joint venture to bring the premier solar trade show experience to Mexico. Solar Power Mexico, launching in 2019, will be a B2B event assisting solar power and energy storage professionals with accessing and navigating this booming market.

During this month’s Solar Power International, Stephen Miner, President & CEO of SPI, Madame Mi Yue, Founder and CEO, SNEC PV Power Expo, and Benjamin Low, Global Director Energy, Deutsche Messe AG will host solar industry leaders and supporters during an informational session about Solar Power Mexico and how it can help international companies maximize the emerging opportunities in Mexico’s PV sector. This unique collaboration between leading international solar event organizations puts a crucial new conference on the map for business and organizations interested in Mexican solar power.

The solar industry in Mexico is being driven by favorable energy policies, low solar prices, and increasing energy demand. On top of the 2012 General Climate on Change Law, which targets a portfolio of 35% renewables by 2024 and 50% by 2050, Mexico’s Secretariat of Energy sees 11.6 GW of cumulative PV power and 58.5 GW of clean energy by 2032. Additionally, Mexico’s plentiful solar resources means there is ample opportunity for accelerated industry growth in the solar arena.

As solar continues to play an increasing role in its energy portfolio, Mexico is becoming a more attractive investment opportunity. By collaborating with Mexican development groups and leveraging the strengths of SPI, SNEC, and Deutsche Messe to develop Solar Power Mexico, we will connect new innovative technologies and strategies to the business organizations looking to build upon this burgeoning market. We can’t wait to bring this event to Mexico City,” said Stephen Miner, President & CEO, Solar Power International.

The Solar Power Mexico Informational Session will take place on Tuesday, September 25 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. PT, during Solar Power International at the Anaheim Convention Center. The inaugural Solar Power Mexico will be held March 19-21, 2019 at the Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City, Mexico.


About Solar Power Mexico
Solar Power Mexico is organized by three leading trade show and event companies in the world: Deutsche Messe, SNEC PV Power Expo, and Solar Power International have joined forces to help develop the Mexican solar energy market. Due to the levels of daily solar irradiation ranging from 4.4 kWh/m2 to 6.3 kWh/m2 per year, Mexico offers a huge investment and business opportunity in the installation of small to large scale solar systems.

About Solar Power International (SPI)
Solar Power International (SPI) is powered by Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), whose combined efforts have created world-class events. This event generates success for solar energy professionals and the global solar industry. SPI sets the standard for solar events as the fastest growing and largest solar show in North America as recognized by Trade Show Executive and Trade Show News Network. With its breadth of industry experts sharing their knowledge and exhibitions from the industry’s pacemakers, SPI is the leader among solar trade shows. Unlike other solar industry events, all proceeds support the expansion of the U.S. solar market through SEIA and SEPA’s year-round research and education activities, as well as SEIA’s advocacy efforts.
