Mexico’s recent energy reform has received much praise for the economic benefits it promises to bring, but one piece of the puzzle most politicians seem to overlook is the environmental impact that will result and the issues with postponing the inevitable: the need to look to alternative resources. With its ample sun and wind resources, Mexico would be an ideal candidate for transitioning to greener energy. However, without strategic planning the country’s energy reform will threaten to undo recent progress towards the transition to renewable resources.
