This white paper provides guidance for Mexico’s electricity system planners and other stakeholders on how to develop a comprehensive grid integration study. Drawing from the IEA’s Expert Group Report on Recommended Practices 16. Wind Integration Studies, this report contextualizes recommendations and best-practices specifically to support Mexico’s goals of increasing the contribution of RE to the nation’s electricity supply. Throughout the report, the authors provide expert insights into how Mexico can prioritize near-term versus long-term data collection, analyses, and other actions to understand and address the impacts of higher wind and solar penetration levels associated with Mexico’s 35% by 2024 RE goal.

This report, written as a summary for power system regulators and operators of Mexico, examines key practices of different U.S. jurisdictions for evaluating and approving generation and transmission expansion projects. The report includes a discussion about cost-benefit analysis to inform decision–making and a discussion about reliability standards and how to model reliability in the bulk electric power system in the context of increased adoption of variable renewable resources. Section 3.3 reviews approaches to modeling dispatch, capacity expansion, and power flow, with an emphasis on accurate representation of variable renewable resources, and Table 3 provides samples of power system models in use in North America.

Mexico is a regional leader in setting goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and distributed generation (DG) development is a key priority for the country's policymakers. Current DG policies have fostered growth but need to be modernized to serve current needs and accommodate higher penetration levels. In this report, NREL summarizes international DG policy experiences and best practices and identifies the potential opportunities for policy reform.

This report examines various compensation methodologies for demand response programs in Mexico. Demand response (DR) can refer to a variety of approaches to changing the amount and timing of customers' electricity use, allowing the electricity supplier to more easily balance electricity supply and demand. The level of compensation for a DR program will depend greatly upon both the regulatory context of the electricity supplier, as well as the economic circumstances of the DR providers. This report presents three case studies, including New England, California, and Hawaii.

El Gobierno de Mexico reconoce el potencial de la generacion distribuida limpia (GD) para contribuir significativamente a los objetivos de energia limpia y reduccion de emisiones de Mexico. Sin embargo, aun quedan preguntas importantes sobre como valorar justamente a GD y fomentar un crecimiento de mercado inclusivo y equitativo que sea beneficioso para los inversionistas, los contribuyentes de electricidad, los distribuidores de electricidad y la sociedad. El Laboratorio Nacional de Energia Renovable (NREL) de los EE. UU. se ha asociado con instituciones del sector energetico y partes interesadas en Mexico para proporcionar apoyo analitico oportuno y experiencia para ayudar a informar los procesos de formulacion de politicas sobre GD limpio.
