Mexico’s Energy Transition Law, approved in December 2015, set forth revised regulations for the sustainable use of energy and established obligations on clean energy and emission reductions, including a target of 25% of energy from clean energy sources by 2018.  Since that time, three renewable energy auctions have been conducted to great fanfare and international acclaim. A fourth auction is being developed for launch in the first quarter of 2018.

Beyond the headlines, there are important questions that the Mexican government, policymakers, regulators and investors are grappling with in terms of Mexico’s energy transition. Indeed, Mexico is at a critical juncture as it strives to consolidate critical public policies and regulatory frameworks to enable and accelerate the country’s transition to a more sustainable energy mix.

As investors and companies seek to develop the myriad projects either won at auction or in private development under the new market framework, there are several issues for consideration and further analysis. Financing renewable energy projects in Mexico is increasingly being debated particularly in terms of the role for national development banks and where commercial lenders fit in. Meanwhile, continued clarity on elements such as permitting, community engagement, and how transmission issues are being managed are also important.
