  • Sector: Energy
  • Company: Asolmex
  • Country: México

Olea chairs the Mexican Solar Energy Association and the Gauss company. With over 25 years of experience in the energy sector, the ITAM economist became president of the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) from 1995 to 2000. Now he is faced with the challenge of promoting the use of renewable energies at a time when the Mexican government considers these to be expensive and a risk to the operation of the national electricity system, even despite the low prices and less environmental impact compared to fossil sources such as coal, fuel oil and natural gas.
