POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily update of energy-related news:

  • The U.S. and Mexico will work to negotiate an agreement for peaceful nuclear cooperation that will strengthen the legal framework and improve the supply chain for the transfer of nuclear technology and components so that both countries can optimize nuclear energy’s benefits. Leaders from both countries also agreed to strengthen trade and to include items related to energy and climate change as part of that agreement.
  • On Wednesday, Chile hosted its largest power auction (to date) attracting 84 bids for electricity supply contracts. The country currently has the third most expensive power in South America; hopes are high that the auction will help the country reach its goals of reducing electricity costs for Chilean families and businesses. The winners of the auction will be announced on August 17.
