The two entities plan to work together on short- and medium-term projects such as smart grids, geothermal exploration and production and support for the creation of a CO2 harnessing center in Mexico, as well as research scholarships in the Netherlands and the participation of TNO specialists in a workshop in Mexico.

The projects would enable INEEL to expand its participation in the international energy sector and use its experience through its staff, the Cuernavaca-based institute said in a release.

The MOU signed in March is for the development of clean technology in the Mexican and Dutch energy sectors, and to promote cooperation between the two countries in this sector.
