Managing the expansion of the Mexican power sector is still one of the greatest challenges. Key mexican government officials will be addressing new inclusive strategies for expanding the electric grid. Mexico’s goal for the year 2024 is to reach 35% of generation of electric energy to come from clean sources. Each MW from wind avoids the emission of 2.900 tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere, which contributes significantly to slowing down climate change.
Investment in the wind sector in Mexico not only generates benefits by offering competitive electric energy prices but it also promotes the creation of a value chain for national manufacturers and products. To date the investment made in wind farms totals over 6 billion USD with more than 1,400 wind turbines operating in the country and it is estimated that there will be investments of more than 12 billion USD between 2015 and 2018.
