Co-Benefits of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies for Mexico

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).
