Mexico Renewables Report

BMI View: Mexico's renewables industry is facing mounting headwinds in the form of falling electricity prices, which threaten to erode the sector's cost competitiveness relative to thermal power generation. Overall, however, we believe that the positive fundamentals of the market, including the conducive policy environment, outweigh the risks; a view supported by the strong investor interest in the market and continued strengthening of the project pipeline.

Mexico's adoption of the 'General Law on Climate Change' in June 2012 set a target of boosting the renewable industry so that 35% of energy generated comes from alternative sources (including hydropower) by 2024 - an ambitious goal considering the prevalence of thermal energy in its power mix. However, progress has been made, and overall, we expect Mexico's non-hydro renewables industry to continue to expand robustly. Furthermore, we believe Mexico will maintain its position as a key renewable energy player in the Latin American region.

Key Trends And Developments Within The Market:

  • According to the Mexican government, electricity tariffs for each type of consumer in March 2015 were significantly lower than a year earlier. The Ministry of Energy (Sener) quantified a reduction in tariffs of 18%-26% for industrial consumers, 16% for commercial consumers, and 7.5% and 2% for residential consumers with high and low demand, respectively.

  • Spanish firm Acciona expects to commence construction of its first solar farm in Mexico, with a capacity of between 30MW and 50MW, by the end of 2015. The firm aims to install 200MW of solar power in the country, reports Milenio, citing ACCIONA Energia Mexico Director Miguel Angel Alonso. Acciona has wind parks with an installed capacity of 556MW in Oaxaca State and is constructing another 300MW under engineering, procurement and construction contracts, in Oaxaca and Nuevo Leon.

  • Acciona opened a concrete wind turbine tower production facility in General Escobedo, Nuevo...

BMI Industry Forecasts

Historic data series (2010-2012) and forecasts to end-2018 for electricity generation (TWh) and electricity generating capacity (MW) for each individual renewables sector present in the country.

These in turn are broken down into:

Electricity Generation: Overall capacity (TWh), growth % change year-on-year, KWh per capita, % of Total Non-Hydropower renewables generation, % of total electricity generation.

Electricity Capacity: Overall capacity (MW), growth % change year-on-year, % of non-hydroelectric renewables capacity and % of total capacity.

These forecasts are in turn supported by explicit assumptions, in conjunction with analysis of the key risks to the main forecast.
