                    [post_content] => Energy transitions are complex processes that are difficult to characterize using a small number of features. Despite this, this study tries to provide a framework for the energy transition, pointing out that some long-run scenarios have a higher probability than others. The document is organized around four key propositions:
  • The energy transition is driven by policies rather than by technology improvements.
  • The energy transition disrupts liberalized electricity markets and undermines their economic foundation.
  • Given the current technologies and technological perspectives, the energy transition to renewable sources is going to be incomplete.
  • There is a change in consumer preferences for cleaner energy and this change demands new business models.
These four propositions lead to the following consequences:
  1. The outcome in terms of electricity prices and energy production will depend on the policies applied. There are multiple possible polices and potentially multiple paths of energy transition.
  2. A complete transition based on renewable energy may be technically possible, but politically difficult to manage in liberalized markets. These markets need a totally new design.
  3. There is a change in consumers preferences towards decarbonized energy, creating new business opportunities and jeopardizing traditional business models.
Energy transitions are complex processes and it is not possible to make accurate predictions on this phenomenon, but, in our opinion, this study adds value to the current debate since it provides general guidelines for policymakers, energy companies and investors.

It identifies the main political and economic barriers that could potentially prevent the reform from progressing. Although privatization is not being considered, Mexico is following closely the same deregulation-commercialization path to electricity market reform as has been implemented since the early 1990 in many developed countries. The danger is that the potential gains for the Mexican economy from electricity market deregulation will be delayed for many years if the reforms become trapped in a political impasse over electricity subsidies and commercializing Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE). We propose an alternative route that takes into account the economic, political and social realities of Mexico, recognizing that our proposal is a 'second best' alternative, but one that increases the chances of success as compared to trying and ultimately failing to implement the 'first best' standard solution.

Successive governments have been committed to energy sector reform, but it raises fundamental political and social issues. Resource, particularly oil, nationalism is at the heart of Mexican identity and underlies the central role of Pemex in its energy system. Despite the problems this creates, it would be unrealistic to expect rapid progress.
