Mexico has recently worked on theenhancement of a green energy strategy for the future. To this end, and in time of annual accounts, the Mexican government has recognized the important impulse of wind projects in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in 2012. Also during his presentation also discussed the new National Energy Strategy (ENE) from 2012 to 2026, in which it is proposed that 35% of the country's energy source is sustainable.Following this goal, Mexico has ended year with a portfolio of renewable energy equivalent to 6,500 million euros to be made in several stages, according to ProMéxico. Meanwhile, during the last stage, wind energy has been the one that has received more supportand is expected to reach 2,000 MW by the end of 2012. In this sense, the most important investment was the wind field Oaxaca II, III and IV, by Acciona, which added to the complex Eurus represent about 65% of the installed wind capacity in the country.
According to the Initiative for Renewable Energy Development in Mexico, wind energy is positioned as offering the greatest potential, with 50 GW and load factors above 20%.
The new Mexican government has made it a new challenge to develop a National Plan that allows the use of 12 GW wind by 2020. The use of these 12 GW would impact the Bruno domestic product (GDP) of 10,000 million euros, equivalent to 1.1% of GDP in 2011 and the creation of 48,000 jobs directly or indirectly. Moreover, solar energy could provide a growth in the first months of 2013 because there is a greater number of companies interested in investing in this energy source in the country. According to ProMéxico, the country has one of the most exploitable insolation conditions in the world, especially in the Northeast, where there is a high potential to be almost no cloudy days, which adds to the fact that the cost of technology is falling, making this increasingly profitable source.
At present there is already a deal for the French company built a solar Heliotrop pilot in Sonora, with a € 620,000 funding. According to the announcement by the CEO of Heliotrop, Bellavoine Pal, the project started with a phase of industrial development which is intended to carry out the construction, for summer 2013, a demonstrator module 30 kilowatts / hour (kWh). In this regard, the National Solar Energy Association (ANES) has called on the incoming administration to trigger and promote the use of renewable energies like solar. Among the proposals is that of promoting the use of solar systems increasingly with funding interest ranging from 13 to 15% annually, with a down payment of 25%, thereby encouraging the use of this alternative energy source.
