Enerdata was selected by ADEME, the French Agency for Ecological Transition, in the context of a partnership between AFD, ADEME and CONUEE, the Mexican National Commission for the Efficient Use of Energy, a decentralised administrative body of SENER (the Energy Ministry).
As a result, for a 3-year period, Enerdata assisted CONUEE in the development and adaptation of tools to evaluate energy efficiency in Mexico, both over the last 20 years and over the long-term (2030, 2050).
The project, funded by AFD, was conducted in three main phases.
In December 2015, Mexico took further action against global warming by enacting its Energy Transition Law, aimed at regulating the sustainable use of energy and promoting the generation of clean power. CONUEE was appointed among the authorities in charge of its application.
To be a driving force in Mexico’s energy transition, CONUEE formed a team to work on two major axes: monitoring energy efficiency trends; and assessing the long-term impact of energy efficiency measures. To achieve both objectives, the team wanted to benefit from the French and European experience in measuring energy efficiency program through advanced indicators, and to build up new skills in energy demand forecasting scenarios.
Beyond punctual assistance, CONUEE’s experts needed in-depth training along the project with Enerdata, to take over the responsibility of energy demand monitoring and projections in Mexico after the three-year cooperation.
Enerdata developed CONUEE’s online energy efficiency database.
This user-friendly platform gathers all the data and indicators prepared during the project, along with intuitive features for advanced analysis.

Enerdata designed two energy demand forecasting scenarios: one baseline scenario, one energy efficiency scenario.
CONUEE used the scenarios developed by Enerdata to define national energy efficiency targets and to promote the 2020 revision of the Energy Transition Law. Approved by SENER (the Energy Ministry), this update further implemented Mexico’s Transition Strategy to Promote the Use of Cleaner Technology and Fuels.

Enerdata delivered on-field training to experts from CONUEE, SENER (the Energy Ministry) and CENACE (National Energy Control Centre).
This training successfully contributed to Mexico’s ambition of progressing “towards a sovereign energy transition”.
