    Wind energy advances but is limited in Mexico

    January 14, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      While 482 gigawatts (GW) of new wind power capacity is expected to be added worldwide between 2021 and 2025, the outlook for Mexico has been limited by the various changes in regulations and energy policy, according to the Mexican Wind Energy Association (Amdee).

      Currently there is an installed capacity of 751 GW in the world, which has generated close to 1.2 million jobs globally until the end of the first half of 2021, according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

      With the increase, it is expected to achieve an accumulated 1,225 GW of energy produced with wind by 2025, according to GWEC estimates.

      Meanwhile, in Mexico, the incorporation of 7 GW is on hold due to regulatory uncertainty, according to Amdee.

      On the way to the tenth edition of Mexico Wind Power, to be held next March, the Association pointed out that it is necessary to have dialogues and analysis that allow assessing the impacts of the constitutional reform initiative on electricity, which was presented by the Executive on September 30, 2021.

      "Currently, the wind energy sector in Mexico, and the renewable energy sector in general, is going through a juncture that will determine its development for the coming years," he said in a statement.

      "The different ups and downs in energy policy and the public debate that has resulted from the electricity reform initiative presented by the current government, make necessary spaces for meetings and dialogues to move towards the best scenarios for the industry. "Source: GWEC and Amdee
