Renewable Energy Prospects: Mexico

As the second largest energy consumer in Latin America, Mexico is committed to contributing to the global transition to a sustainable energy future. Mexico is one of the world’s largest crude oil and natural gas producers, but its natural gas imports are rising. Mexico is fast emerging as a leader of a Latin American energy transformation. This REmap 2030 report shows how the country can achieve the transition to renewable energy, suggesting specific and practical pathways that would result in a clean and secure energy system. If Mexico continues on its path towards a sustainable energy future, it will be recognized as a leader not just in Latin America but also in the rest of the world.
