Border Energy Forum George P BushFor more than 20 years, the Border Energy Forum (http://borderenergyforum.org/) has worked to increase regional development of clean energy projects, promote cross-border energy trade, and advance technologies and innovative solutions for sustainable resource management. The event will offer a rare opportunity to interact with the highest level players in the energy industry from both sides of the border in a professional but intimate setting.

The Border Energy Forum is a collaborative effort among the 10 border states along the US / Mexico border. The original idea for the Forum was to gather 50 people each from the United States and Mexico once a year to exchange information about the best ways to produce and consume energy in our fast-growing region, forge new partnerships and help each other work together on our twin goals of economic development and environmental protection.

Although the annual crowd surpasses 300, usually evenly divided between Americans and Mexicans, the Border Energy Forum has fulfilled that original concept to become a cornerstone of energy policy and program development for the region.

In attendance will be representatives from the federal governments of both Mexico and the United States, as well as state and local officials from both sides of the border from the private sector – energy producers and energy consumers – university professors researchers and members of environmental groups.

The Forum has met at least once in each of the 10 U.S. and Mexican border states.
