How the Energy Transition contributes to Sustainable Development in Mexico

This report explores how the co-ben­e­fits of renew­able ener­gy and ener­gy effi­cien­cy sav­ing mea­sures can play an active role in con­nect­ing the Mex­i­can ener­gy tran­si­tion with key process­es and com­mit­ments for devel­op­ment that have been deter­mined by the coun­try itself. These include the Nation­al Devel­op­ment Plan (NDP) for 2019–2024 as well as cli­mate goals or Nation­al­ly Deter­mined Con­tri­bu­tions (NDC), to which Mex­i­co is com­mit­ted under the Paris Agree­ment. This study, pub­lished in con­junc­tion with the project Enhanc­ing the Coher­ence of Cli­mate and Ener­gy Poli­cies in Mex­i­co (CONECC), offers quan­ti­ta­tive evi­dence of the co-ben­e­fits of two routes (sce­nar­ios) for ener­gy tran­si­tion as relat­ed to the Ener­gy Tran­si­tion Law (LTE). These vary in scope how­ev­er, reveal­ing how the co-ben­e­fits of renew­able ener­gy and ener­gy effi­cien­cy can help to play an active role in achiev­ing nation­al devel­op­ment goals.
