Elster, a Raleigh, N.C.-based provider of smart grid solutions, says it has participated in a reverse trade mission with Mexican smart grid stakeholders, including representatives from Mexico's Ministry of Energy, Federal Electricity Commission and Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).

Elster, which participated at the invitation of the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), says it provided the delegation with an overview of the company, highlighting its history of innovation and long-standing presence in the U.S. and Mexico.

"Elster is pleased to have participated in this important reverse trade mission to discuss our respective visions for grid modernization and common interest in moving forward with expanding smart grid deployment in Mexico," says Ed Myszka, president of Elster Solutions.

The USTDA sponsored the reverse trade mission to familiarize Mexican regulatory and utility representatives with the U.S.’ smart grid regulatory environment and related technologies. The schedule included meetings with U.S. companies, U.S. government agencies and trade associations, as well as site visits to electric utilities.

Earlier this year, the USTDA awarded a $405,000 grant to CRE to support the development of a regulatory framework for smart grid implementation in Mexico.
