Mexico’s Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) has warned that 55 GW of additional generation capacity will be needed within the next 15 years to ensure supply keeps pace with demand.

Speaking at the recent BNamericas Energy Summit, Gonzalo Arroyo, a planning coordinator at the CFE, confirmed that current plans meant that high dependence on natural gas.

He confirmed that between now and 2028, 13 GW of conventional thermal capacity is scheduled to go out of service and replaced with lower-carbon generation sources, such as carbon sequestration and combined-cycle plants.
