Energy, a potential niche in Yucatán

“Today the electricity rates in our region are between 12% and 17% more expensive than the rest of the country,” said Alejandro Gómory Martínez, president of Canacintra, when inaugurating the V Expo Yucatán Energy Forum 2024 which takes place in the 21st Century Convention Center.

These rates, he continued, put the state at a disadvantage in terms of investments and that is why 10 years ago, when the Canacintra agenda was established, the government’s management was supported to supply the entity with natural gas.

“We began to support the management of the State government so that we were supplied with sufficient natural gas of the necessary quality since this input is vital for the development of the industry and production processes,” he said during the inauguration.

Before Juan Carlos Vega Milke, Undersecretary of Energy of the Ministry of Economic Development and Labor (Sefoet), who attended on behalf of Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal, the president of Canacintra highlighted that at the expo they seek to present to industrialists the various alternatives that They can apply in their businesses to reduce their energy costs and be more efficient.

“On this occasion we will put special emphasis on the safety of the use of natural gas, also for its aspect in domestic consumption, as well as on the issue of the energy transition, storage, and some regulations,” he noted.

In the two days of the expo, there will be 11 conferences with topics such as the energy transition, the synergy between renewable energies and generating sets, the 2.0 network code for charging centers, electromobility in Yucatán, and energy storage.

In his turn, Undersecretary Vega Milke highlighted that energy is the engine that drives progress and economic growth in any society. “In Yucatán we have enormous energy potential, from the production of renewable energy such as wind and photovoltaics to the development of energy efficiency and the exploration of new sources of clean and sustainable energy.”

As he recalled, in Yucatán 25% of the energy consumed in a year comes from renewable sources such as the five wind and photovoltaic plants that began operating between 2018 and 2021, in addition to those installed as photovoltaic systems on the roofs of houses or industries.

“If we add to the above the electricity generation that comes from the combined cycle plants that today operate natural gas, then we would be in a scenario where Yucatán has more than 85% of its energy coming from clean sources.”
