Business opportunities for Dutch companies in the Mexican Renewable Energy sector

Mexico´s energy reforms have revolutionized the local energy market since 2013, breaking up the monopoly of state-owned institutions Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) and the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and opening up the market to the private sector by 2016. The Mexican government’s commitment to meet climate goals including a 35% energy consumption generated through renewable sources by 2024, combined with the innovative business climate in the Netherlands and its expertise in the renewable energy market point towards promising business opportunities.

This report aims to explore and identify possible business opportunities for Dutch companies with sustainable energy technologies in the open electricity market and in distributed generation, particularly in the solar, wind, ocean technology, biogas and geothermal sectors in Mexico.
