Investment in wind farms in Mexico exceeds the 6,000 million dollars. Nations around the world are making efforts to generate alternative energy sources, one of them the wind. To date in Mexico, investments in wind farms have exceed the 6,000 million dollars, with 1,400 wind turbines in operation. It is expected that between 2015 and 2018, the investments in this sector exceeded the 12,000 million dollars.
In 2014, the country attracted 2,100 million dollars investment in renewable energy, 40% more than in 2013, according to the report Global Trends of Investment in Renewable Energies by 2015 of the UN program for the environment.
This sets Mexico above other emerging economies such as Indonesia (1,800 MD), Turkey (1,800 MD), Chile (1,400 MD) and Kenya (1,300 MD). For its part, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has predicted that it will cost 44 billion dollars (bdd) make the switch to 100% renewable energy for the year 2050.
These are the States that will generate more megawatts with wind energy by 2018.
