2016 will be a year to watch in terms of renewable energy development in Mexico
The big names in renewable energy are moving into South America; Gamesa has secured a turbine supply deal for a 200MW wind farm in the north of Mexico, SgurrEnergy has opened an office in Mexico City as it aims to develop its renewable energy presence in the region. British solar developer Hive Energy has also opened an office in Mexico City to identify opportunities for solar PV development and Iberdrola has inaugurated the 66MW Pier II wind farm in the state of Puebla in Mexico; the $130m project being carried out with local partner the Mabe Group.
Latin America is expected to grow at a yearly rate of 0.85 percent over the next 20 years, and with economic growth comes an increase in energy needs. By 2030, 30 percent of the increase in installed capacity is expected to come from renewable energy, totaling 196 gigawatts.
Renewable Energy companies from across the region will come together on 24-25 February at Mexico Wind Power 2016 and the ALLEN & YORK LATAM recruitment team will be among them, available to discuss renewable energy recruitment requirements and career prospects with companies who are expanding across the region.
ALLEN & YORK have increased the size of their LATAM recruitment team to meet this increased demand for renewable energy professionals and are looking forward to supporting local and international companies growth across South America.
If you are looking to recruit or work across the Renewable Energy industry across the LATAM region, we would love to hear from you.
