ICIS, the leading provider of pricing information, news and analysis for Mexico's deregulated energy markets, is pleased to announce the growth of its power market price survey with the inclusion of three new contract types.
Price indications for notional two, three and five year contracts for potential power transactions on Mexico's MEM wholesale power market were included in the flagship Mexico Energy Report publication on 11 July in addition to the one-year contract already included.
The survey results show that a two-year contract for the Valle de Mexico Norte node, which covers the Mexico City region, could transact at MXP1282/MWh (US$67.59 /MWh) for a contract beginning October 2018, assuming both buyers and sellers make equal concessions to secure a deal. Three and five-year contracts at the same node with the same start date could transact at MXP1295/MWh and MXP1162/MWh, respectively.
Through the survey, participants are asked to submit bids and offers in Mexican Pesos per MWh for the purchase or supply of 5MW of power to one of the seven nodes on the national SIN power grid, three of which were added in the first quarter of 2018. Responses are submitted to represent the full local marginal price, inclusive of the costs of energy, congestion and losses.
The inclusion of the new contract types show the growth in both interest and activity in Mexico's power market, which continues down the path of full deregulation initiated with the launch of the MEM in January 2016.
ICIS was the first price reporting agency to offer price transparency on any Mexican energy commodity market with the launch of the first power market survey in March 2017. The new contract types and nodes underline the company's commitment to providing the best coverage and transparency for the Mexican power and gas markets
"We're very grateful to participants who have made the survey expansion possible through their submissions and feedback. We look forward to continuing to work with them to bring additional transparency to the market in line with the pace of its liberalization," said Claudia Espinosa, editor of the Mexico Energy Report.
Since its launch in May 2015, the ICIS Mexico Energy Report has become the leading English language news source for Mexico's rapidly developing power and gas markets.
The report provides exclusive news and in-depth analysis on the latest projects, prices and legislation affecting the Mexican energy sector on a weekly basis, offering the insight that global businesses and investors need to evaluate opportunities in Mexico's emerging power and gas markets.
