While largely successful to date, Mexico’s clean-energy auctions need a pre-qualification system to weed out speculative bidders, says GWEC secretary-general Steve Sawyer

Mexico should move to discourage speculators in its clean-energy auctions by embracing a pre-qualification system similar to those in place in Brazil and South Africa, says Steve Sawyer, secretary-general at the Global Wind Energy Council.

Mexico’s first three clean-energy auctions, held between March 2016 and November 2017, have been hailed as a landmark in the global renewables market, with average prices falling from $47.78/MWh in the first auction to a stunning $20.57/MWh in the most recent, including a record-low wind bid.

EurObserv’ER, el Observatorio Europeo de las Energías Renovables, ha hecho balance de 2017, el año en el que el parque eólico global superó el medio millón de megavatios de potencia. Según este organismo, dependiente de la Comisión Europea, a día de hoy el mundo tiene ya instalados 539.256 megas eólicos (539,2 gigas, GW). Eso sí, el Observatorio de la UE matiza: aunque el crecimiento sigue siendo formidable, lo cierto es que el de 2017 se ha desacelerado por segundo año consecutivo (55,5 GW en 2016 y 64 en 2015, que fue el año top). ¿Motivo de la desaceleración? La relativa contracción del mercado eólico chino, según EurObserv’ER.


Com pouco mais de 2 gigawatts em novas usinas eólicas colocadas em operação no ano passado, o Brasil apareceu como o sexto maior em expansão anual da capacidade em todo o globo, à frente da França, com 1,7 gigawatt, segundo lista do Conselho Global de Energia Eólica (GWEC, na sigla em …
