Enerdata assisted the Mexican administration in updating its Energy Transition Strategy
Mexico just adopted the revision of its Transition Strategy to Promote the Use of Cleaner Technologies and Fuels under the Energy Transition Law (Ley de Transición Energética – LTE). Enerdata assisted CONUEE, the national energy efficiency agency of Mexico, in defining the energy demand scenarios and targets described in the strategy using a Mexican version of its MedPro model, with the support of ADEME, the French energy efficiency agency and AFD, the French development agency.
The Transition Strategy’s targets the reduction of power sector emissions and of the country's dependence on fossil fuels as a primary source of energy. It aims to ensure a sustainable use of energy and provide a clean energy framework while maintaining the competitiveness of the productive sectors. This includes:
- a bigger share of renewables in the power generation mix;
- establishing mechanisms for promoting clean energy and reducing emissions, especially in the power sector;
- incorporating externalities in the evaluation of the costs associated with the operation and expansion of the power sector, including those related to health and the environment;
- determining norms and requirements in terms of sustainable energy use and energy efficiency for products consumed on the national territory, independently of their origin.
Mexico’s 2050 vision foresees the use of clean and energy efficient technologies for a sustainable development of the country, with emphasis on energy security and the national production of goods, as well as an energy available for all at low cost.
