X-ELIO reinforces its commitment in Mexico with an agreement for the training of local students.
This initiative is deployed under the framework of the X-ELIO ´s Community Plan Program
The company will offer their facilities and resources to the students, who during four months will put to practice the knowledge acquired during their course
Madrid, 4th of November 2021. X-ELIO, global leader in the development of sustainable energy, with presence in Mexico since 2015, has recently closed a collaboration agreement with the Technological Institute of Perote. Through this agreement, Renewable Energy Engineering students will be able to do their internships at the X-ELIO plant in the municipality of Perote, in the state of Veracruz. This agreement is part of the local community support program, which includes regional actions that aim to promote the company’s commitment to the environment, education, sustainable communities and health. The signing took place at the Institute of Perote, with representatives of both parties. During the event, X-ELIO and the Institute highlighted the importance of companies as allies of local education to transfer knowledge and provide experience to students.
Over the next few months, the students will work at the plant and put into practice the knowledge acquired during their academic life through the company’s facilities and resources. In addition, X-ELIO will provide transport, private insurance, and daily meals during working hours, which will be supplied by a local producer, reaffirming its compromise with sustainable and local consumption. Prior to the start of the program, a company presentation will be given on the importance of renewable energy and to explain the safety measures at the plant, and students will have the opportunity to talk and ask questions to X-ELIO’s Country Manager in Mexico.
The purpose of this collaboration is to create a connection with the communities in which the company operates and to serve as a tool for social development in all the markets it works in. Responsibility for the protection of the environment and its community; awareness of the fight against climate change and the green transition of the economies, as well as commitment to training and best practices in the sector are some of the main drivers of X-ELIO’s community support programs.
This initiative is the second announced by the company within this year in Latin-America. During the month of October, X-ELIO informed about another collaboration closed with ACERA and REDEG to join forces to promote equality in Chile’s energy sector. Through this program, young female students will be able to access mentoring to acquire new skills in the renewable energy sector in Chile.
“We are very proud to be able to contribute to the development of social awareness of renewable energies and the training of students in this field. Through this action, X- ELIO reaffirms its compromise to the fight against climate change and the development of the different communities in which we operate. The company will maintain its commitment towards this type of initiatives and we will continue to use our experience and knowledge to create value for the local communities”.Armando Gómez, Country Manager of X-ELIO in México

We reiterate our gratitude to the firm for the opportunity offered to our students”.Antonio Alemán, Director of the Superior Technological Institute of Perote
“The company X-ELIO is giving me the opportunity to perform my social service in the facilities of the Perote PV Plant, where I am applying the knowledge I have acquired at the university.
