Mexican energy minister Rocio Nahle said Wednesday that the country's fourth renewable energy tender would “probably” happen, but it will depend on finding the most optimal conditions and largely on advances made by state-owned utility CFE in terms of generation and transmission.
According to a summary of the speech the minister gave at the Energy Meet Point forum, it is important to count on the state-run company because it is the one that will pull others, Nahle said.
The minister highlighted the role of renewables in Mexico and said that the government was responsibly embracing them to comply with international commitments. Mexico will stay on track with the 2024 target to have 35% of electricity coming from clean sources.
