Foley invites you to join us for the next installment of our Energy Bootcamp Series, which will examine Buying and Investing in Energy Projects in Mexico and Latin America.

With the recent reform of the Mexican energy sector, interest in energy projects in Mexico is at an all-time high. In addition, significant renewable energy projects are advancing across the region, from Chile to Peru and from Central America to the Caribbean. As the number of projects increases, so does the need for capital. Among other topics, this Web conference will address common investment structures and strategies, considerations that can contribute to a successful acquisition or joint venture, and common mistakes.


  • Background of energy reform
