Embark on a exciting journey into the heart of Mexico's electric energy storage market at our special exhibition ees Mexico, where innovation converges with opportunity. Here's a compelling overview of the thriving landscape and limitless potential that awaits companies venturing into this dynamic sector.
While utility-scale storage has seen limited implementation, notable projects, like the solar plant in La Paz, underscore the potential for growth. However, the absence of a defined regulatory framework presents a key challenge.
Enterprises in the industrial sector are capitalizing on "time shifting" services, optimizing electricity costs by purchasing at base rates for use during peak hours. Small-scale applications thrive in stand-alone PV systems within the residential market, while data centers embrace energy storage for crucial backup functions.
The imminent rise of electric vehicles in Mexico is steering attention toward electric chargers for electromobility, presenting a burgeoning market for forward-thinking companies.
Following the 2022 mining law reform, LitioMx emerged as a pivotal force, overseeing lithium exploration and commercialization within Mexico. This initiative could boost national manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries, a critical component in meeting the surging demand from the electric mobility sector.
As the renewable energy trajectory continues upward, forecasts predict a demand for 2.3 gigawatts of storage within the next decade. The National Electric System Development Program (PRODESEN) anticipates installing approximately 4,505 megawatts in energy storage systems from 2022 to 2036.
Mexico's scientific community dedicated to energy storage is thriving, with an exponential increase in research groups since the inaugural Energy Storage Discussions in 2014 until the latestDiscussions in 2023. The Energy Storage Network, established in 2017, acts as a catalyst for innovation, fostering expertise in lithium purification, active materials synthesis, and comprehensive modeling and testing.
Strides are being made to include energy storage systems in Electricity Market Rules and National Transmission and General Distribution Networks planning. Organizations like CONACYT and INEEL actively push for comprehensive regulations covering testing, certification, and interconnection of storage systems, promoting research and technological development.
In 2020, collaborative efforts from the National Institute of Ecology and Climate Change (INECC), the Federal Energy Commission (CFE), and the International Energy Agency (IEA) emphasized the role of energy storage in achieving climate goals. Technical papers outlined diverse storage technologies to reduce emissions, advocating for substantial investments aligned with the Paris Agreement.
