The federal government stated that Federal Electricity Commission ,CFE) entered into a contract with the Austrian firm Andritz Group To modernize its 14 hydroelectric plants and improve energy production processes in Mexico.
Through its official Twitter account, the federal administration specified that the resettlement process Generate more energy at a lower cost and with a renewable and clean supply,
“CFE informs that a consortium led by the Austrian company Andritz Group will modernize nine of the 14 hydroelectric plants, which will be rehabilitated in this administration for renewable, clean and affordable electricity”
Thus takes a step towards Mexico’s goal Produces 35% of its energy from renewable sources such as wind, sun and water, It should be recalled that since the appearance of CFE Director Manuel Bartlett at the Chamber of Deputies on 26 October this year, another renewable energy project was reported.
During your participation before the federal legislature, Bartlett Diaz explained that the commission doubles down on efforts to guarantee energy autonomy Promised by President Andres Manuel López Obrador (Amlo), so new production plants are being built.
He remarked that these projects are carried out without public-private partnerships, without expenditure deferred investment projects (pidiregas). He also pointed out that as part of the projects A “big” solar park is being built, with which a total of 8,600 MW of power is expected to be generated through self-financing of a Master Investment Trust and with resources sourced from National and International Development Banks.
However, the parliamentary opposition criticized the nature of the CFE to initiate generate energy by combustion of mineral coal, for which the generating company for the state saw the need to contextualize the generation of energy in the plants Mexico’s coal mines in relation to the world,
according to the report of CFE, China, United States (USA), European Community, India and Russia produce 59.9% of CO2 emissions in the world. In this regard, it should be assumed that the whole planet has 193 countries, which account for another 40.1%,
Similarly, thousands Coal who continues to work on the planet. for example, China has 1,082 such plants in operation., After that India with 281, USA with 252, Japan with 87, Russia with 85, and many other countries count their coal-fired plants by the dozen. opposite of this, Mexico has only three coal production plant.
Finally, it is necessary to weigh how much electricity supply from coal represents each country’s total consumption, because while Germany is 24% dependent on coal, Mexico only 4%, which makes the Mexican Republic look like a responsible generator of electric power.
such that Rehabilitation and improvement of hydroelectric power plants Clean energy generation is included on the agenda by Mexico in view of the commitments it has made to the international community.
