Mexico Renewable Energy Outlook 2018

Balmorel: Power system model | February 2018 - May 2019

In close cooperation with the Department of General Planning, SENER, the UNAM/SIMISE team and the Danish Energy Agency, Ea Energy Analyses have written a report to produce input for the Mexican Renewable Energy Outlook, a publication submitted annually by the SENER.

The report analyses the best possibilities and the least costly options for Mexico of achieving CO2 reductions in the electricity sector, beyond the current goals.

The long-term development of the Mexican power system (until 2050) was analysed with the Balmorel model and four scenarios were investigated. The analyses indicate that wind and solar power, due to their expected decrease in costs, will become important generators in the Mexican power sector.
