Mexico Opens Up Its Clean Energy Markets
Dec 14, 2017

China's energy storage network: recently, Mexican media reported that the country's clean energy has been developing rapidly, with solar power expected to grow by 29 percent in 2017.Solar power is now available in about 160,000 homes in Mexico, but there is still plenty of room for solar energy for a country with more than 32 million homes.

Mexico average solar radiation is 5 KWH/m2, the sun is about 5.5 hours a day, is one of the global solar radiation is the most abundant country, but the country's solar energy resources utilization rate of less than 5%.In 2016, Mexico accounted for about 20 per cent of total electricity generation, compared with less than 1 per cent for solar.To promote the development of clean energy, the energy reforms in Mexico in 2015 and ease electricity market access restrictions, allowing foreign capital and private capital to tender method into the clean energy power generation project market.

Since 2015, there have been three rounds of bidding for power projects in Mexico, with most of the first two rounds being solar projects.Mexican solar photovoltaic association, after a solar power generation project subject to tender by Mexican federal power commission, foreign investment and what was the winning 10, these projects will be started today for two years, more than 1000 megawatts of new power capacity.It is also understood that by 2019, 34 companies from different countries will invest more than $6 billion in 52 clean energy projects.

Meanwhile, Mexico plans to increase the proportion of clean energy generation to 35 percent by 2024.The energy minister, Mexican energy minister, said the company would make a significant contribution to the transformation of the country's electricity structure and energy structure, including foreign capital and civilian investment.

Experts believe that to achieve sustainable development, the world is coming to the development of solar energy.Data shows, for some need to pay the high electricity users, using household solar power supply system, electricity saving up to 90% above, solar power of the attraction is quite big on demand.

The region needs to develop the solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, while China has advanced clean energy technology, also have experience in cost control, clean energy cooperation between la in the future.
