Financing Renewable Energy in Mexico
Mexico has been one of the Latin American countries who has embraced climate change action. For instance, in March 2015, it submitted a climate action plan to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), being the first developing country to do so. As a part of its efforts, Mexico has set policies and laws to increase energy efficiency promote clean energy.
New pipelines have enormous potential to support increased natural gas production in Mexico and also reduce the costs of imports. Although there is already an impressive pipeline infrastructure for transporting natural gas from the U.S. into Mexico, it does not reach the entire country. Most of the less expensive piped gas goes only to the northern states of Mexico, in part to provide power for factories.
For many years, the market for clean energy was limited by unstable prices. Energy prices are generally difficult to predict, but clean energy adds the uncertainty of new technologies and the weather. Within a small area, spot prices for wind power can literally go whichever way the wind blows. However, virtual power purchase agreements (PPAs) are creating new ways to reduce price volatility and expand the market for clean energy.
A power purchase agreement sets out the terms of a bi-lateral agreement in which one organization buys energy from another. The main elements of a power purchase agreement include the price for capacity, the price for energy (basically, the marginal cost of electricity), and the number of years that it will last.
Mexico was the first country to commit to specific targets under the Paris Climate Agreement, and achieving those targets is driving solar energy in the country.
Mexico’s renewable energy auctions benefited from the experiences of other countries, so results have generally been better. According to IRENA, 53% of Mexican solar energy auction projects were on time, while only 37% experienced delays.
The Mexican dilemma is a delicate balance for both long-term buyers of power, and for the government. Natural gas stabilizes electricity prices and it provides reliability to the power grid.
