Beyond Power Generation: Solar Heating in Mexico

Free Webinar

Energy consumption in the residential, commercial and industrial sector goes beyond electricity. In the industry alone, 67% of the final energy consumption is for heat, which is covered by fossil fuels. Solar thermal energy is a renewable, reliable and cost effective option. With an installed capacity of 3 GW at the end of 2018, Mexico is the second largest solar thermal market in Latin America. It is also the country with the largest number of projects installed in the industrial sector.

In this webinar, Daniel García will share details about the different market segments of solar thermal energy in Mexico.
