Troilus Gold – Der nächste Produzent im Tal des Goldes?

Schon mit der australischen Orinoco Gold hatte die Redaktion von GOLDINVEST.de Ende Januar auf eine besondere Situation hingewiesen, die sich bereits jetzt für damals mutige Anleger bezahlt gemacht hat. Denn Orinoco hat sich in nur drei Wochen in der Spitze fast verdoppelt! Heute möchten wir unsere Leser erneut auf eine Sondersituation im Goldsektor aufmerksam machen, bei der wir ebenfalls erhebliches Aufwertungspotenzial sehen – die kanadische Troilus Gold (WKN A2JA0J / TSX-V TLG).

Während es bei Orinoco darum ging, eine in Schwierigkeiten geratene Mine wieder in die Spur zu bringen, sieht die Lage bei Troilus Gold etwas anders, wenn auch nicht weniger spannend, aus. Das Unternehmen, das übrigens vom CEO von Sulliden Mining (WKN A119S4) sowie President der mittlerweile übernommenen Sulliden Gold, Justin Reid, geleitet wird, will eine ehemals produzierende Mine wieder in Betrieb nehmen,

Das war bislang nicht möglich, weil die Besitzverhältnisse ständig wechselten, nachdem dort zwischen 1996 und 2010 mehr als 2 Mio. Unzen Gold und rund 70.000 Tonnen Kupfer produziert wurden! Die Mine, die im bekannten Abitibi-Grünsteingürtel im Val d‘Or, bzw. um genau zu sein in der östlichen Region des Frotet-Evans-Grünsteingürtels, liegt, weist zudem noch eine angezeigte Ressource von mehr als 2,1 Mio. Unzen Goldäquivalent auf. Diese besteht aus 44 Millionen Tonnen bei einem durchschnittlichen Goldgehalt von 1,27 Gramm Gold pro Tonne in der Kategorie angezeigt. Das entspricht 1,8 Millionen Unzen Gold. Hinzu kommen 117 Mio. Pfund Kupfer mit durchschnittlich 0,12% Kupfer als Beiprodukt. Zusätzlich sind noch 543.000 Unzen Goldäquivalent in der Kategorie geschlussfolgert bei 1,33 Gramm Gold pro Tonne vorhanden.

Zinc One Reports Final High-Grade Zinc Results from Sampling Program at Bongará Zinc Mine Project, Peru

Vancouver, BC – February 21, 2018 – Zinc One Resources Inc. (TSX-V: Z; OTC Markets: ZZOF; Frankfurt: RH33 – “Zinc One” or the “Company” – https://www.youtube.com/… ) has received results from the final batch of surface and pit samples at its Bongará Zinc Mine Project in north-central Peru. The program included a total of 446 samples from historic pits and surface channel samples from the Bongarita, Mina Chica, Mina Grande Sur, and Mina Grande Norte areas of known mineralization.

The sample results reported herein are from the Mina Grande Norte area. Highlights from the program include 5.0 metres of 43.9% zinc from exploration pit P185-17 and 5 metres of 29.5% zinc from exploration pit P009-17. Mineralization is open at depth in both pits. All samples were located in the central part of a 1.4-kilometre long trend of surface and near-surface zinc mineralization in the area referred to as Mina Grande Norte (formerly Fase B).

Jim Walchuck, President and CEO of Zinc One stated, “The results received to date from the pit and surface-sampling program remain consistent with much of the legacy data we have. Bongará continues to reveal high-grade zinc results throughout the 1.4-kilometre long trend of surface and near-surface zinc mineralization. In addition, the current drill program will establish thicknesses of the mineralization at Bongarita, Mina Chica, and Mina Grande and better delineate the known mineralization.”
Geology and Discussion of Results

The Bongará zinc-oxide mineralization is stratabound and hosted within carbonate rocks. The carbonate host rock at Mina Grande Norte is fractured dolomite and dolomite breccia. This mineralization is located along the steep-dipping, eastern flank of the anticline.
The sampling program commenced at the northern end of the trend of known high-grade, zinc-oxide mineralization. The results reported include sampling from the Mina Grande Norte area in the central part of the trend.

Table 1 provides a summary of select pit samples from the same area; the base of mineralization in all cases was never reached. Since the true strike and dip of the stratabound mineralization is not known, the sample thicknesses from the pits do not necessarily represent the true thickness of the mineralized body. A complete summary of all results and related maps are available on the Company website at www.zincone.com.

Sampling and Analytical Protocols

Zinc One follows a systematic and rigorous Quality Control/Quality Assurance program overseen by Dr. Bill Williams, COO and Director of Zinc One.
Surface sampling in outcrops is a manually collected channel sample. In the case of pits, the sample is channeled vertically. The sample is photographed, placed into a pre-labeled plastic bag, properly sealed, and identified with a unique sample number. At the project site, Zinc One independently inserts certified control standards, blanks, and duplicates, all of which comprise approximately 30% of the sample batch, to monitor sample preparation and analytical quality. The samples are stored in a secure area until such time they are shipped to ALS laboratory in Lima (ISO 9001 Certified) for preparation and assay. At the laboratory, samples are dried, crushed, pulverized and then a four-acid digestion is applied. This is followed by the ICP-AES analytical technique for 33 elements, including lead. The same method is used to assay zinc for values up to 20%. If zinc exceeds 20%, it is then analyzed using a titration method. The laboratory also inserts blanks and standards as well as including duplicate analyses.
Drill Program Update

In December 2017, the Peruvian Ministry of Energy and Mines approved 124 drill platforms, with up to three drill holes per platform, along a 1.4-kilometre trend that includes the Bongarita, Mina Chica, and Mina Grande high-grade zinc mineralization at or near the surface. The Bongarita and Mina Chica areas have never been drilled. Two portable drill rigs operated by Energold Drilling Group are currently located on the site. To date, 15 drill holes have been completed at Bongarita. The second rig is expected to start operating at Mina Grande Sur this week. Once drilling at Bongarita and Mina Grande Sur is completed, the rigs will be moved to the Mina Chica and Mina Grande Centro areas, respectively.

Results of the drill program at Bongarita, Mina Chica, and Mina Grande Sur will be used to better define the thickness and lateral extent of the mineralization that has not been previously delineated by the surface channel and pit sampling nor by previous drilling. Results from the drill program at Bongará will continue to form the basis for advancement of the development timeline.

Certification of Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) Program

Mr. Al Workman, an independent Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”), recently visited the Bongará project site in February 2018. A review of QA/QC procedures was performed including analytical checks, and procedures followed in the field and the core handling facility. It was concluded that all protocols are within the realm of best industry practices. Additionally, check samples were collected and will be sent to a laboratory chosen by Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited (“WGM”) for independent analysis. The recent surface- and pit-sampling program verified and validated historic analytical results which can now be used for future resource estimates. Mr. Workman is VP Operations with WGM and has been retained by the Company to provide a resource estimate upon completion of the current drill program.

EnWave Acquires Remaining 49% Non-Controlling Interest in NutraDried LLP

EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the "Company" – https://www.youtube.com/…) today announced it has purchased an additional 49% interest in NutraDried LLP (“NutraDried”) and now owns 100% of the business. The 49% was sold by NutraDried Creations LLP (“Creations”), a Washington State concern. Total cash consideration for the acquisition was US $1,800,000 (CAD $2,266,000) (the “Acquisition”).

NutraDried has been the most profitable business unit for the Company. Fiscal 2017 net income was $716,000 and revenues were $6,556,000. Based on the $2,266,000 purchase price for the 49%, the purchase price multiples were 6.5 times income and 0.7 times revenues.

EnWave expects NutraDried to continue contributing positive earnings, revenue growth and cash flow for the Company. NutraDried’s revenues have been increasing each year, reporting $6,556,000 for fiscal year 2017, up 30 times in three years from $221,000 in 2014, its first year of operations.

The Acquisition enhances EnWave’s strategy to commercialize its industry-leading Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) dehydration technology on a global basis. NutraDried has served as an integral sales tool for the Company as it showcases the commercial viability of REVTM in the consumer-packaged goods sector. To date, EnWave has leveraged the success of NutraDried’s Moon Cheese® product to attract eight other companies to sign royalty-bearing commercial license agreements for cheese snack production internationally. Additionally, the high-volume, continuous nutraREV® line has de-risked the technology investment for prospective royalty partners.

The Acquisition will allow NutraDried to pursue additional product opportunities using its installed 100kW nutraREV® processing line, including new product line extensions, and will demonstrate the value proposition for using REV™ to introduce new healthy snacking alternatives. It is not EnWave’s intent to compete directly with current or prospective royalty partners; rather, the Acquisition will allow the Company to develop new product demonstration concepts to promote further and more rapid commercialization for REVTM products.

EnWave’s primary business focus will continue to be its royalty-licensing business model and the rapid deployment of REV™ machinery for use in multiple market verticals around the globe.

NutraDried manufactures and distributes Moon Cheese®, an all-natural dried cheese snack produced using REVTM technology. NutraDried produces Moon Cheese® in cheddar, gouda, mozzarella and pepper jack flavours at its manufacturing facility located in Ferndale, Washington, and distributes it in over 20,000 retail locations across Canada and the United States. Notable retail points of distribution include Starbucks, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Safeway, Loblaws, Save-On-Foods, and most recently, Costco’s Midwest division.

About EnWave
EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products.

REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up nine distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Partnership, NutraDried LLP, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.

EnWave has introduced REV™ as the new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms:

1. nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour;

2. powderREV® which is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point, and

3. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.

An additional platform, freezeREV®, is being developed as a new method to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies. More information about EnWave is available at www.enwave.net.

18th International Automobile Recycling Congress IARC 2018

Time flies and now it’s only 3 weeks to the International Automobile Recycling Congress IARC 2018 in Vienna. We hope that you will enjoy our industry meeting as much as we do. So far, over 190 participants from a total of 26 different countries have enrolled for the IARC 2018 – including many from the automotive industry, we are pleased to say.

Moreover, many experts are waiting for you with interesting presentations. The programme includes almost 30 presentations and three plant tours. So don’t miss this unique opportunity to exchange the latest news and ideas with experts from all areas of the automobile recycling industry. Particularly, we are also looking forward to our keynote speakers:

• DI Christian Holzer (Director General, Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, Austria)
• Joseph M. Holsten (Chairman of the Board, LKQ Corporation, USA)
• Christophe Pillot (Director, Avicenne Energy)

At the IARC 2018, Joseph M. Holsten will give us an overview of the dismantling market and present his personal market assessment. Before the conference we asked Joseph M. Holsten how he views the European market and what the future challenges for the dismantling market will be. You can read his response to these questions here:

1. Mr Holsten, you have also been working in Germany since your acquisition of Stahlgruber GmbH last year. How do you rate the European dismantling market?

I rate it as attractive. The European car parc is enormous, and the high age of vehicles provides for a lot of opportunity to provide a strong value proposition to the repair and parts replacement markets. Some quick observations that we have – the yards are typically smaller here in Europe, the operators likely have a larger focus on scrap materials than on parts sales, more exporting in Europe, more of a DIY focus in Europe than a DIFM (do-it-for-me), and the auto insurance industry is less of a factor in Europe than the US.

2. What distinguishes the European market from the US market?

The primary difference in my view is that the US market is far more focused on the value of the parts that are dismantled, whereas I find many European players to be concentrating mainly on the scrap value that can be derived from a car, whether it is late model or an ELV. As a general rule of thumb, US industry participants are likely operating on a larger footprint than European contenders, and that is likely due to more availability of land in the US, at less expensive costs. Another factor weighing on the business models in the two markets, is that the US automotive insurance industry has focused for at least two decades now, on incorporating used auto parts, from dismantlers, into the repair of auto’s involved in an accident, as a means of reducing costs, ensuring quality repairs, and being competitive on their premiums; in Europe, that really has not happened to the same degree as the US. With this higher demand for quality used parts in the US, dismantlers are enabled to pre-dismantle parts they will see demand for, and inventory the parts into electronic cataloguing systems, and that is not always happening in Europe.

3. What particular challenges do you see for the dismantling market in general?

In Europe, I believe the largest challenge near-term is the low level of demand for late model parts recovered from salvaged vehicles. More demand for these valuable and quality parts would push up the value of salvage, improve the profitability of the industry, and would benefit the sustainability contributions of the industry; with the hierarchy of waste management being “reduce, re-use, and recycle,” a significant improvement can be made by pushing these parts from being a “recycled product” to a re-used product, and through added remanufacturing in the market, even more product can be moved into the re-use category. Longer term, and worldwide, I think the challenge for the industry will be to alter business models to address the impact from more collision avoidance technology, the likely shift to more electric vehicles in the car park, plus the impact of autonomous driving. Obviously, these changes will flow into the market over a couple of decades, allowing the industry to alter their business models over a long period of time.

4. End-of-life vehicle recyclers are increasingly complaining about the difficulties involved in processing composite materials. How do you deal with this trend?

In terms of composite materials, we are just beginning to see somewhat immaterial quantities in the damaged cars that we buy in the US, so it really has not been a factor to date. I suspect that the European dismantlers are likely ahead of the US in how they manage the product, so an opportunity for us to take operating practices from Europe back to the US.

5. Which business promises more growth? The spare parts business or the recycling of individual material fractions?

Focusing solely on Europe, I suspect that the dismantling and shredding industries are doing a pretty good job on the overall recycling of auto’s, and the question to be answered is really “how much is enough?“ So, while continued improvement in technology, and actually applied technology, is working well regarding individual fractions, I think it is the spare parts business that should be growing faster. Perhaps most importantly, the spare parts market needs to generate more alternatives to be more relevant. A higher quantity AND quality of used parts need to be readily available for consumers, at prices that provide an attractive value proposition, for both the do-it-yourself customer, as well as the professional do-it-for-me repair shop. The opportunities for higher volumes of used part sales are huge.

At the IARC 2018, Joseph M. Holsten will go into greater detail on the topic of further current trends in the dismantling market, especially on the dismantling businesses for all sorts of mobile assets like motorcycles or farming equipment. For all the details on the congress and how to enrol for it, go to: http://www.icm.ch/iarc-2018. We greatly look forward to seeing you at this year’s industry meeting!

18th International Automobile Recycling Congress IARC 2018

Have you already made all your preparations for this year’s International Automobile Recycling Congress IARC 2018? If not, then make sure you do so soon, as our sector get-together begins in less than four weeks. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to exchange the latest news and ideas with experts from all areas of the automobile recycling industry.

Again this year, our congress has attracted a large number of visitors. So far, over 180 participants from a total of 26 different countries have enrolled for the IARC 2018. This year, we have again put together an interesting and highly diverse program for our visitors. We are particularly looking forward to our keynote speakers:

• DI Christian Holzer (Director General, Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, Austria)
• Joseph M. Holsten (Chairman of the Board, LKQ Corporation, USA)
• Christophe Pillot (Director, Avicenne Energy)

At the IARC 2018, Christophe Pillot will provide us with his view on the e-mobility market, especially on the future of batteries. Before the conference we asked Christophe Pillot how he evaluates the current development in the market for electric vehicles. You can read his response to these questions here:

1. Mr Pillot, electromobility is gaining momentum. Norway leads the way in Europe with a share of almost 40 percent of all registered passenger cars. When will countries such as Germany, France or Italy reach similar proportions?

You are right, Norway leads the way in Europe with 40 % of all registered passenger cars for PHEV and EV. It was 21 % for full EV. But, the average penetration for PHEV and EV in Europe is only 2 % in 2017, 5 % if we add Hybrid vehicles. For pure EV, major analyst forecast a penetration between 10 and 25 % in 2025.

2. What needs to change so that consumers will actually be asking for more electric cars?

Well, from my point of view, first of all, the battery cost is still too high. The current price is around 200 $/kwh, that means 8 000 $ for a 40 kwh pack (Renault Zoe), 20 000 $ for a 100 kwh pack (Tesla). Most of the analyst forecast a huge decrease of battery price for the future. Whether this will happen remains to be seen. Cell material costs account for more than 50 % of the total cost of the battery pack, and the most important costs are due to the active cathode material based on Ni, Co, Li, metals with very volatile prices.

3. But the cost is not the only decisive factor?

No, definitely not. Important is also the battery performances in order to increase the range as well as the charge time. Besides that the acceptance of electric cars depends on the life time of the battery and last but not least the charging infrastructure. In these areas there is still room for improvement.

4. Some car manufacturers are setting up their own battery production. Batteries are already being offered for leasing in electric cars. Will this trend intensify and ultimately lead automobile manufacturers to process and recycle batteries themselves?

Some car manufacturers decide to make the battery pack, some others (BYD, Toyota) decide to make the cell. But, the recycling is another business. We think lithium ion battery recycling will be made by specialist, not by car manufacturers.

At the IARC 2018, Christophe Pillot will go into greater detail on the e-mobility market and the challenging future for batteries. We greatly look forward to seeing you at this year’s industry meeting! For all the details on the program and how to enrol for it, go to: http://www.icm.ch/iarc-2018

Stadtwerkestudie 2017 bestätigt SHERPA-X-Strategie

Das Lösungsangebot, das die Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall GmbH und die Somentec Software GmbH innerhalb der SHERPA-X-Produktfamilie anbieten, deckt in weiten Teilen passgenau den heutigen Unterstützungsbedarf kommunaler Unternehmen ab. Bei der Beweisführung berufen sich beide Unternehmen auf die Stadtwerkestudie 2017 von Ernst & Young (EY), die sich auch als Pflichtenheft deuten lässt. Die erstaunliche Deckungsgleichheit der darin formulierten Marktanforderungen mit den eigenen Lösungsinstrumenten hatten die Stadtwerke Hall und Somentec zum Anlass genommen, den Autor der Studie, Dr. Helmut Edelmann, Director Utilities bei EY, zum Meinungsaustausch auf die E-world energy & water einzuladen.

„Die Stadtwerkestudie liefert den unabhängigen Beweis, dass wir mit unserer Produktstrategie auf dem richtigen Weg sind“, sagte Ronald Pfitzer, Geschäftsführer der Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall und Sprecher der Geschäftsführung der Somentec Software GmbH. „Für alle Handlungsfelder, die in der Studie als dringlich identifiziert wurden, bietet unser SHERPA-X-Portfolio belastbare Lösungen.“ Akuten Handlungsdruck verspüren viele Energieversorger laut EY-Studie in den Bereichen Optimierung interner Prozesse, Umsetzung dynamischer Energiemarktanforderungen, Smart Metering und Smart Grid, Vertriebsunterstützung und CRM sowie Entwicklung neuer Geschäftsmodelle. Teils müssen bestehende Geschäftsprozesse effizienter gestaltet werden, teils gilt es neue, zunehmend komplexe Aufgaben effektiv umzusetzen. All dies wird überlagert von der Anforderung, den Digitalisierungsprozess im gesamten EVU dynamisch voranzutreiben.

Umfangreiches Lösungsportfolio für alle Anforderungen

Sei es die Übernahme von Marktkommunikationsprozessen, Unterstützung beim Aufbau neuer Geschäftsfelder wie die Heizkostenabrechnung, Übernahme von Services wie die Gateway-Administration beim Smart Metering oder die Bereitstellung schlanker Softwarelösungen für alle Marktrollen on premise oder als Software as a Service – all dies ist und vieles mehr bietet SHERPA-X. „Unsere Lösungen lassen sich flexibel individuellen Anforderungen anpassen – egal ob diese funktionaler oder organisatorischer Art sind“, betonte Pfitzer. „Die Unternehmen bestimmen die Tiefe der Zusammenarbeit und bleiben jederzeit Herr des Verfahrens und selbstbestimmte Marktteilnehmer.“

Komplexität, Personal- und Know-how-Mangel, Kostendruck…

Als Gründe für den wachsenden Bedarf der Stadtwerke an Prozessoptimierung und Unterstützung nannte Somentec-Geschäftsführer Olaf Polak drei wesentliche Faktoren: zunehmende Komplexität in praktisch allen EVU-Geschäftsprozessen, fehlendes Personal und Spezial-Know-how sowie nicht zuletzt steigender Kostendruck infolge zunehmenden Wettbewerbs auf der Vertriebs- und Erzeugerseite. „Viele Unternehmen brauchen jetzt sprichwörtlich einen Sherpa, der ihnen Last von den Schultern nimmt und ihr Fortkommen erleichtert. Genau das ist Anspruch und Versprechen von SHERPA-X.“

Maximale Prozessautomatisierung gefragt

Auch die Softwareentwickler bei Somentec fühlen sich durch die Stadt-werkestudie bestätigt. Christian Hartlieb, zuständiger Geschäftsführer für Softwareentwicklung und Produktmanagement: „Für unsere Branchenlösung XAP. erhärten sich aus der Studie primär zwei zentrale Anforderungen. Einerseits geht es um maximale Prozessautomatisierung, das heißt um durchgängige, robuste und transparente Abläufe sowie eine möglichst einfache und intuitive Fehlerbearbeitung. Hier haben wir schon viel erreicht und optimieren zielorientiert weiter. Andererseits muss Utility-Software in Zukunft mehr können als Verbrauchsabrechnung und Kundenbetreuung nach heute noch gängigem Verständnis. Big Data, künstliche Intelligenz, Machine Learning und Bots beispielsweise sind Stichworte, die verdeutlichen, wohin die Reise geht.“

THE GREEN EXPO 2018 – Global Resources Environmental & Energy Network Internationale Fachmesse und Konferenz in Mexico City

Zum 26. Mal in Folge findet vom 4. – 6. September 2018 THE GREEN EXPO, Mexikos bedeutendste internationale Messe für Umwelttechnologie und Energiewirtschaft im World Trade Center in Mexiko City statt. Die Fachausstellung und Konferenz, die von E.J.Krause de México zusammen mit CONIECO (National Association of Industrial Ecologists) organisiert und von SENER (Secretary of Energy) unterstützt wird, ist die führende Veranstaltung für erneuerbare Energien und die gesamte Umweltindustrie in Mexiko und Lateinamerika.

Auf der letzten Ausgabe stellten über 200 Aussteller rund 10.000 Fachbesuchern ihre nachhaltigen Produkte und Technologien vor und präsentierten Dienstleistungen aus den Bereichen Photovoltaik, Solarthermie, Biomasse sowie energiesparende Konzepte für ‘Green Cities’, Ab-Wasser-Management und Recycling. Begleitend zur Fachausstellung fand die High-Level-Konferenz mit mehr als 100 renommierten Sprechern statt, die der mexikanische Umweltverband CONIECO organisiert. Besonders starkes Interesse erhielten die Schlüsselthemen Klimawechsel, Energiewende, Standards für Abfallbeseitigung, Umweltmanagement und erneuerbare Energie.

Nach Abschaffung des staatlichen Monopols und Freigabe des Mexikanischen Energiesektors im Jahr 2013, gefolgt von der Energiereform und der Zulassung von privaten Unternehmen, bietet der Markt seit 2015 unzählige Möglichkeiten für internationale Firmen. Die gesetzlich verankerten Zielvorgaben verlangen die Reduktion von fossilen Quellen und bis 2024 die Abdeckung von 35 % des Energiebedarfs aus erneuerbaren Energiequellen. Mexiko ist in Lateinamerika einer der attraktivsten Märkte für Investitionen in erneuerbare Energien und laut Index von Ernest & Young Global weltweit auf Rang 9. Laut der Studie wurden im letzten Quartal Investitionen in Höhe von 2,8 Millionen US$ getätigt. Nach Angaben des Mexikanischen Energieministeriums kommen im Bereich der erneuerbaren Energien die meisten Direktinvestitionen aus dem Ausland (FDI) von spanischen Unternehmen, gefolgt von US-Konzernen und deutschen Firmen.

Das Interesse an deutschen Unternehmen ist groß, besonders gefragt sind deren Erfahrung bei der Umsetzung der Energiewende sowie zukunftsträchtige Lösungen von führenden Technologieanbietern. Wie bereits in den vergangenen 8 Jahren wird es auch 2018 einen vom Bundesministerium für Energie geförderten deutschen Gemeinschaftsstand geben, der von IEC Berlin organisiert wird. Firmen aus Österreich erhalten ebenfalls eine finanzielle Förderung bei einer Platzierung in dem von Advantage Austria (WKO) ausgerichteten Gemeinschaftsstand. Teilnahmebedingungen für Einzelstände oder innerhalb der nationalen Pavillons erhalten interessierte Firmen über die deutsche E.J.Krause-Niederlassung oder via www.ejkgermany.de.
