RDA’s team of economists, engineers and consultants specialized in the energy sector are highly experienced in carrying out rigorous quantitative analysis, through developing mathematical, economic, financial, accounting and statistical analyses, with the objective of assisting applicants or permit holders to submit robust proposals regarding rates before the CRE.
The implementation of the Energy Reform has led to the creation of a new institutional and regulatory framework whose aim is to improve operations and competitiveness in the energy market. As a member of the OECD, Mexico has adopted the guidelines on Improving the Quality of Regulation. Regulators must now justify the benefits of the proposed regulations and regulated parties are given the opportunity to participate in the decision making process for issuing new regulations.
