The North American Center for Transborder Studies, the Southwest Consortium for Environmental Research and Policy (SCERP), and the Council of State Governments-WEST are sponsoring this initial workshop to promote a binational process of generating and exchanging less polluting, fossil fuel-free, alternative energy in the 10 U.S.-Mexico border states. This is an invitation-only event for key stakeholders, ASU faculty, and NACTS-SCERP student sustainability fellows.
The workshop will explore opportunities and options to develop and exchange energy in the U.S-Mexican borderlands. Working papers and a database are available on the Transborder Renewable Energy Project Page.
The Americas Quarterly article, Energy: Central America's Power Future by Jorge Mercado is a good primer.
