Energy Perspective of the Rio Grande Border -2013
This project addressed an analysis of the energy situation of Mexico’s northern border states (Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas), which included the consumption of fossil fuels, the use and availability of renewables, and the production and consumption of electricity. The analyzed states show a large dependency on the United States in terms of energy consumption and a present and projected high carbon emission economy. The study analyzed various projects for electricity generation based on renewables, to determine the benefits and costs of each of them.
