Harnessing The Potential Of Wind

Mon, 02/25/2019 - 18:07

The estimated potential of wind resources in the country is close to 15,000MW. A few years ago, the only attractive region for this purpose was the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Today, this technology is operating in 10 states, with the strongest growth taking place in Tamaulipas, Coahuila, Yucatan, Puebla and Nuevo Leon. Innovation has played an important role as novel turbine models can now leverage different wind profiles. As wind farms can be located in isolated regions, transmission and distribution infrastructure is a pressing issue for their development.
