With proper planning, navigating the road to Mexico can be a rewarding venture. Having a clear market entry strategy and understanding the best options to enter the Mexican market is the first key step. Once entry is determined, organizations need to develop a financing strategy and align themselves with partners who are adept at securing financing in the Mexican market and, in parallel, legal and tax structures should be reviewed with experts familiar with the local market laws and systems. Finally, before commencing operations in Mexico, firms need to create an operational implementation plan that establishes the new policies, processes, talent, and technology required to begin operations.

Before the Energy Reform, Mexico had a traditional industry model where a vertically integrated State agency, the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), was responsible for developing all activities of the power industrial chain, from energy generation to delivery to end users.
