A report published previously this year by the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) ended that Mexico "is ideally poised to end up being a clean energy powerhouse".

According to the research, quick development in renewables deployment might make it possible for the country to achieve its 35% clean energy generation objective by 2024, create high degrees of financial investment, rise energy gain access to, minimize prices to consumers and also enhance the reliability and also resilience of its power system.

NREL director Martin Keller claimed as understanding Mexico's renewables potential "will require energy policies that facilitate exclusive investment and also sustain our collaborations on clean energy, climate as well as supply chains".
