The failure of Texas, the largest energy-producing state in the US, to address power disruptions caused by freezing temperatures a few weeks ago has raised interest in Mexico to learn from the lessons that California has gained in adapting the power grid/system to exceptional weather events—and climate change more generally. It als offers opportunities to expand and deepen bilateral cooperation at the Federal and State level, as well as within academic circles. Alianza University of California-Mexico is pleased to invite you to the second US-Mexico Energy Dialogue, entitled Climate-Resilient Energy Systems: Lessons from California, which will take place in virtual format next March 9 th , from 9 am to 10.30 am PST (11 am to 12.30 pm Mexico City time).
The US-Mexico Energy Dialogues, a UC-UNAM initiative, sponsored by Alianza UC-Mexico and organized in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL), consist of a series of monthly webinars with UC and Mexican experts discussing CE and EE topics of relevance to Mexico and the U.S. (particularly California). Researchers from all the UC campuses, the LBNL, UNAM and other Mexican institutions across the country, as well as representatives from government agencies, industry and NGO’s are invited to participate.
