Since its conception, the organization has strived for students all around the world to take the lead in energy related issues, not only technology, but politics and regulations as well, for they will become the leaders of tomorrow.

By organizing the International Student Energy Summit, the organization has brought together thousands of outstanding students and has come to the conclusion that energy issues aren’t the same all around the world. In order to help youth search for more specialized improvements in energy Regional Summits came up.

Mexico City, being one of the most multicultural cities in the world, will be hosting the summit that will bring together students from all over the continent. Among its large, 20 million, population energy problems aren’t missed, for the electricity needed to boost this megatropolis has to travel a long way from different spots around the country.
