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.

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    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.
