The scenario ahead of us shows that the world will need more energy – at least 30% until 2040 according to the International Energy Agency. At the same time, in Paris last year the international community committed to limit the increase in temperature below 2ºC. Combining these two trends will require substantially changing the current model towards more sustainable and competitive energy sources. Low carbon electricity technologies will play an essential role in this respect.
Progress in Mexico is aiming in this direction. The energy reform announced by President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2013 – part of an extensive and ambitious agenda of reforms that cover a variety of social and economic areas – is a unique example of a comprehensive and agile transformation of an energy industry.
