Mexico Evolution of Electricity Generation by Fuel 1971 - 2005


Grid Summary

Mexico had 52 gigawatts of installed electricity generating capacity in 2005. The country generated 240 billion kilowatthours (Bkwh) of electric power in 2005. Conventional thermal generation represents the overwhelming majority of Mexico’s electricity generation, though the mix from these sources is gradually shifting from oil products to natural gas. Mexico consumed 183 Bkwh of electric power in 2005. Sector Organization State-owned Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) is the dominant player in the generation sector, controlling about two-thirds of installed generating capacity. CFE also holds a monopoly on electricity transmission and distribution outside of Mexico City and some other municipalities; within those areas, state-owned Luz y Fuerza Centro (LFC) holds a monopoly on distribution activities. The Comision Reguladora de Energia (CRE) has principle regulatory oversight of the electricity sector.Mexico has an active electricity trade with the United States. Mexico exported 1.14 Bkwh of electricity to the United States in 2006, while importing 0.87 Bkwh. Many companies have build power plants near the U.S.-Mexico border with the aim of exporting all generation to the United States. There are plans to connect Mexico with Guatemala and Belize as part of the Sistema de Interconexion Electrica para America Central (SIEPAC). The plan is part of a larger effort, the Plan Puebla-Panama, to create an integrated electric power market in Central America…more information.

View Progress by Goal for Mexico Official MDG Reports Civil society seeking an agenda centred on human rights Two Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Reports have been published (April 2005 and November 2006), based chiefly on the contents of the National Human Development Reports. The Reports are available at, Mexico’s official MDG website. Government commitment has been strong. Following publication of the 2005 Report, the Inter-Ministerial Commission on Social Development, in which almost all ministries are represented, was given responsibility for all government-related, MDG follow-up activities. It is expected that this arrangement will continue under the current President. The second Report includes a national leaders survey on the relevance of the MDGs to Mexico’s development and how to improve that relevance through inclusion of additional MDG Goals and targets. It outlines processes that could turn such an MDG-Plus platform into an organizing framework for Mexico’s development. The Report also documents a cycle of academic seminars on the MDGs (one forum for each Goal), organized in collaboration with some of Mexico’s most prestigious institutions and with government support. The government’s programmes are analysed with a view to assessing their relevance to achievement of the Goals. The national leaders survey, whose results were presented in May 2006, generated an unprecedented national dialogue. It became clear that much of civil society is seeking the construction of a national development agenda structured around issues such as growth with equity, poverty and inequality reduction, and human rights and the rule of law...more information.

The MDG data presented here is the latest available from the United Nations Statistics Division. The World Bank has recently released new poverty estimates, which reflect improvements in internationally comparable price data. The new data estimates set a new poverty line of US$1.25 a day and offer a much more accurate picture of the cost of living in developing countries. They are based on the results of the 2005 International Comparison Program (ICP), released in first half of 2008, EIA Energy (2007E), *Population with Electricity
