Priority area Sustainable and needs-based energy supply Supporting Mexico's energy transition
Germany is supporting Mexico in its efforts to make greater use of renewable energy sources and increase energy efficiency. On behalf of the BMZ, GIZ is advising key players from politics, industry and science with a view to driving forward the market introduction of solar energy. Activities include the elaboration of strategies for making use of solar energy in industry. Staff from Bancomext, the national bank for development and foreign trade, are receiving assistance in assessing solar projects in terms of their economic viability and financial risks, and in developing new funding models.
Moreover, important public and private institutions, scientific research institutions and municipalities are receiving support to help them develop timetables and technologies for implementing the energy transition. The aim is to ensure stable and reliable energy supplies whilst increasing the use of renewable energies.
Within the framework of Financial Cooperation, KfW Entwicklungsbank is supporting the installation of wind farms and solar plants, and the construction of houses with very low energy needs.
