Mexico Publishes Renewable Energy Plan

Adjust font size:

Mexico's Energy Ministry on Tuesday published its proposed national plan for energy transition and sustainable use, a document that mainly expresses the ministry's commitment to following already published laws.

"The publication is in fulfillment of what was laid out in the renewable energy law published on November 28, 2008," the ministry said in a statement.

The two axes of the strategy document, which was published on the ministry's website, are to help Mexicans reduce energy use and to promote the use of renewable fuels, something the statement also described as the strategy's main goal.

The five subsidiary goals are to create incentives and promote the application of technology that fulfils the main goal, to diversify sources, to set up a program creating power industry norms, to publicize energy saving measures.

The four tools are to follow goals set out in the existing National Development Plan and Energy Sector Plan, to publicize the plans that have been made, to strengthen regulation and regulators and to help the projects set out in the 2009 budget.
