Alejandro Blázquez is a Project Manager - Electricity at Iniciativa Climática de México (ICM) . He is a climate change and just energy transition professional with experience in energy modeling for the power sector. For over three years at ICM, Alejandro has collaborated in developing several subnational energy transition instruments and advancing the Ejido Solar project, which promotes community development in rural areas through innovative models of photovoltaic distributed generation. He has also participated in developing a technical proposal to enhance the ambition of Mexico's NDCs. Currently, he leads the electricity area in the Net Zero Path project, a civil society proposal developed by ICM to launch a science-based pathway to reach net zero emissions in Mexico by 2060. He is also responsible for several power sector models used to run different scenarios.
Alejandro has a Master's degree in Industrial Engineering with a specialization in Power Generation from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). During his Enertracks Fellowship, he will research on electric vehicle and storage integration into the Mexican power system in a high renewable energy penetration scenario. The outputs of this analysis will be used as inputs for future market design proposals.
