PA's Jim Heidell, an energy expert, is quoted in an article in Manufactura. The article discusses the recent pledge by the leaders of Mexico, Canada and the U.S. to have their countries produce 50% of their power from clean energy by 2025.
Commenting on the technical and economic challenges for the three countries, specifically for Mexico, Jim states: “The first challenge will be to define the scope of the agreement. The commitment will not be legally binding until it becomes a formal document and it is unclear if 50% is committed for the whole North American region or whether each country should achieve it.”
Jim concludes: “At the national level, Canada has the largest advantage because up to 79% of its energy comes from clean sources, while Mexican production by these technologies is around 20%.”
