BORDER ENERGY
FORUM
November 6-8, 2013
San Antonio, Texas
MISSION
The Border Energy Forum (BEF)
brings together state and local
officials, private sector
professionals, academics, and
members of environmental
organizations from both the US and
Mexico border states. The mission
of the Forum is to foster the
exchange information and ideas
about how to best produce and
consume energy in our fast-growing
region, forge new partnerships, and
work together towards twin goals of
economic development and
environmental protection.
BORDER STATES
• The BEF began in 1994, and after last year’s Forum in Sonora,
it has been held at least once in each of the 10 border states.
Border Energy Program
• Annual US-Mexico Border Energy Forum
started in 1994 in El Paso.
• First in Mexico – Forum III in 1996 in
Monterrey.
• Border Energy Forum XIX – Hermosillo,
October 22-24, 2012
• 20th anniversary – Forum XX –
San Antonio, November 6-8, 2013
FORUM OBJECTIVES
• Improve and expand
cross-border
communications, policy
advocacy and outreach
regarding the region’s
vast potential for clean
energy such as solar,
wind, other renewables
and natural gas as well
as energy efficiency and
conservation.
FORUM OBJECTIVES
• Facilitate increased regional development of clean
energy projects, cross-border energy trade,
advanced technologies and innovative solutions for
sustainable resource management, and identify
barriers to their implementation.
FORUM XX
• Coordinated by the Texas General Land Office
• Collaborating with the Border Environment
Cooperation Commission, The Energy Council,
the U.S.-Mexico Cultural and Educational
Foundation, and the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of
Commerce
BECC Overview – Mandate Scope
BASIC SECTORS
• Water pollution
• Wastewater treatment
• Water conservation
• Municipal solid waste
• Industrial and hazardous waste
• Recycling and waste reduction
Jurisdiction
100 km north (population 13.9
million) and 300 km south
(population 16.6 million) of the
international boundary.
Projects beyond these areas may
be eligible if they remedy a crossborder environmental or health
problem.
EXPANDED SECTORS
• Air quality
• Clean and efficient energy
• Public transportation
• Municipal planning and development
• International border crossings
• Energy transmission / distribution of energy
• Production of goods / services to enhance or
protect the environment, if the project provides a
net environmental benefit to the region
• Other infrastructure designed to minimize future
negative environmental impacts in the region
Social and Environmental Benefits
119 Water and Wastewater
Providing improved drinking water
treatment/distribution as well as
wastewater collection/ treatment for the
benefit of more than 12 million border
residents, most significantly impacted by
new capacity to eliminate more than 400
MGD (17.5 m3/sec) of untreated or
inadequately treated sewage
25 Water Conservation
Estimated annual water savings of 330
MGD (456 million m3/year). As a
comparison, this quantity is sufficient to
serve the average drinking water
demands of 4 million people.
23 Solid Waste Management
2.9 million residents with improved waste
collection and disposal services, resulting
in the capacity to properly dispose of 1,550
tons of waste per day
24 Air Quality Projects
7.5 million residents benefited from
reduced exposure to air pollution from
vehicular traffic on unpaved streets.
Approximately 201,000 tons per year of
PM10 anticipated to be eliminated.
11 Energy
Offset demands of traditional fossil-fuel
based energy production, avoiding nearly
1,889,061 metric tons of CO2-eq per
year.
