Mexico’s 2012 clean energy investments reached $1.9 billion, up 595% year over year

Mexico’s  2012 clean energy investments reached $1.9 billion, up 595% year over year | Mexico environment | Scoop.it

Some $4.6 billion of clean energy investments were made in Latin America (excluding Brazil) in 2012, a whopping 127% increase from 2011, according to figures released in advance of the third annual Renewable Energy Finance Forum – Latin America & Caribbean (REFF-LAC), which is being held in Miami this week.

 

In sharp contrast to the strong gain in Latin America clean energy investments, new clean energy investments fell 11% year over year globally, from $302.32 billion in 2011 to $268.69 billion, according to the latest report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). The global decrease was the first fall in renewable energy financing recorded by BNEF since it began collecting data.

 

LatinAmerica was a bright spot amid an overall decline in global renewable energy financing in 2012. Four countries experienced triple-digit clean energy investment growth

 

- Mexico’s total new financial investments in clean energy for 2012 reached $1.9 billion, up 595% year over year

 

- New financial investments in clean energy totaled $1 billion, up 313% from $246 million in 2011

 

- Uruguay’s total new investments in clean energy reached $105 million, a 285% year-over-year increase

 

- Total clean energy investments in Peru reached $643 million, a 176% increase from $233 million in 2011.

 

By dollar amount, Brazil actually led the Latin America & Caribbean regionwhen it came to total clean energy investments. Some $5.17 billion of capital was invested in clean energy in South America’s largest nation in 2012, according to BNEF. Mexico ($1.998 billion) and Chile ($1.018 billion) ranked second and third, respectively.

Turning to 2012, LatAm-Caribbean investments in clean energy sectors, biomass and waste attracted the most capital ($822.34 million), biofuels followed ($539.47 million), and geothermal ranked third ($76.69 million), BNEF found.

 

“The increased investments in non-Brazil Latin America was driven by increased activity by the Inter-American Development Bank,” Maria Gabriela da Rocha Oliveira, BNEF’s head of Latin America Research and Analysis, was quoted in a press release. “Additionally, European players, both project developers and manufacturers, have become more active in the region given grim conditions at home.”

Nissan, Mexican plant develop wind-wind plan

Nissan, Mexican plant develop wind-wind plan | Mexico environment | Scoop.it

Nissan’s Aguascalientes plant in Mexico has become a leading user of renewable energy.

 

The manufacturing plant recently integrated wind power into its energy mix, meaning it now generates 50 per cent of its total energy needs through renewable sources.

 

As a result, the Nissan March, Versa, Sentra and the soon-to-be-released Nissan Note are all produced in Aguascalientes in a cleaner, more sustainable way.

 

Since the beginning of the year, 45 per cent of the plant’s energy for manufacturing comes from a wind farm in Oaxaca, which is operated by Nissan’s strategic partner ENEL.

 

This is not the first time Nissan Mexicana has invested in renewable energy. In January 2012, Aguascalientes set a new industry standard by becoming the world’s first automotive plant to use electric energy generated through biogas.

 

This innovative method uses waste from the town’s landfill site as fuel to generate energy for the plant.

LG to Install 100MW Solar Project in Mexico

LG to Install 100MW Solar Project in Mexico | Mexico environment | Scoop.it

Mexico’s Ecology and Sustainable Development Commission (CEDES) has established an agreement with Korean conglomerate LG Corp to install a 100 MW solar park in the state of Sonora.

 

With an investment of $400 million dollars, the solar project will provide electric power to local schools, hospitals and public buildings, and is expected to mitigate 90 thousand tons of CO2 emissions.

 

According to Oscar Rene Tellez Leyva, CEDES Director, the location of the project is still unknown and remains in early planning phase. However, the park will be developed in three stages, and the first stage will provide clean energy for 12.6 thousand homes and reduce CO2 emissions by 17 thousand tons.

High cost of climate change hits Mexico

High cost of climate change hits Mexico | Mexico environment | Scoop.it

Climate change is costing Mexico approximately $6 billion dollars (75 billion pesos) annually due to an onslaught of hurricanes, cyclones, intense rains and droughts. This amount is higher than the annual budget of Mexico’s Environment Ministry. In the face of these high costs, the government’s climate strategy will focus on prevention  - aiming for cities that are better adapted, pollution reductions and investments in green technology. The full climate strategy is expected to be revealed on June 5, World Environment Day and will include measures to deal with short-lived climate forcers like black carbon, ozone, and methane.

 

The Governor of Jalisco announced he will present a proposed State Law Against Climate Change that will be in line with the national climate law and will help promote state-level public policies for sustainable development. Among other things, the law would help coordinate actions between different municipal and state entities.

Mexican wind power sets new generation record

Mexican wind power sets new generation record | Mexico environment | Scoop.it

Wind power in Mexico sent a record 282GWh to the grid in November, up 233% from 84.5GWh in the year-ago month, the latest figures from national power company CFE show.

 

Wind generation has seen tremendous growth in the last year with capacity surpassing 1.3GW in October.

 

Geothermal generation in the month was 465GWh while nuclear sources generated 503GWh compared to 515GWh and 683GWh, respectively, in the year-ago month. Solar plants accounted for just 161MWh in November.

 

Meanwhile, hydroelectric generation was down in November to 1.61TWh compared to 2.62TWh the previous month and 2.87TWh in November 2011.

Thermo plants generated 13.9TWh in November compared to 12.9TWh in the year-ago month.
