Mexico’s energy strategy comes under fire

Mexico’s energy strategy for the next 15 years recognizes the country’s potential in renewable energy but it does not propose “concrete or sufficient” goals to promote it.

This criticism comes from Adrian Fernandez, the former director of the National Institute of the Environment.

Currently, renewable energy represents 24.5 per cent of the total energy production in the country, according to official figures.

But there is not really a target for what renewable energy sources should represent in the future, and according to some estimates, electricity generation from fossil fuel remains high on the government’s agenda.
