This report explores how the co-benefits of renewable energy and energy saving measures can play an active role in connecting Mexico’s energy transition with key development processes and commitments that the country has determined. The underlying study provides quantitative evidence on the co-benefits of two energy transition pathways related to the Energy Transition Law (lte), but with differing degrees of ambition, and indicates how the co-benefits of renewables and energy efficiency measures can play an active role in achieving national development objectives. The report has been elaborated in the context of the “Social and Economic Co-Benefits of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies in Mexico” (Co-Benefits Mexico) project, implemented through the Enhancing the Coherence of Climate and Energy Policies in Mexico (CONECC) project of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in coordination with the Mexican Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) and in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Potsdam (IASS).
