Mexico’s Renewable Energy Prospects
IRENA’s Renewable Energy Policy Brief: Mexico 2015
The following brief brings together the most up-to-date information on renewable energy public policies for the power, heating and transport sectors, and also includes a section on energy access policies in Mexico. The objective of this brief is not to provide an assessment of the reported policies. The brief is primarily based on the information contained in the IEA/IRENA Joint Policies and Measures Database.
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.
