Mexico

Update: March 2013

The lower house of the Mexican government has approved amendments to the country’s renewable energy bill aimed at promoting rooftop PV at public schools, with the added option to sell surplus energy to the rest of the municipality.

The reform has been submitted to the Mexican Senate for approval. Details on how rooftop PV will be implemented into the reform were not disclosed.

 

The Mexican renewable energy bill calls for a 30% reduction in emission growth by 2020, and 50% by 2050 with 35% of energy to come from renewable sources by 2024.

 

Currently, the country offers tax incentives for solar projects and a form of net metering as well as the possibility of long-term power purchase deals agreements with the CFE.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
