11:20am-11:35am IMPLICATIONS OF WORLD ENERGY SCENARIOS FOR MEXICO

Accenture Strategy, in partnership with the World Energy Council, developed the World Energy Scenarios towards 2060. The emergence of new technologies and environmental regulations pushing towards lower carbon emissions are compressing demand, while supply is being disrupted by diminishing costs of producing hydrocarbons, among other elements. In this context, Mexico has a unique opportunity to create a shared Oil&Gas ecosystem leveraging 21st Century technologies such as blockchains and cloud computing, enabling the country as a modern market compatible with the highest expectations of all industry players.

Raul Camba, Managing Director & Latin America Lead, Accenture Strategy
