Energy system transformation - Knowledge networks for EE & RE with municipalities and cities
The "Sustainable Energy in Mexico" program aimed to increase the sustainability of the Mexican energy system. By expanding renewable energies (RE) and improving energy efficiency (EE), the project supported Mexico in implementing the national Agenda 2030, which aimed to achieve a 30% share of clean energies and an annual reduction in energy intensity of 1.9% by 2030. The project was part of the "Programa de Apoyo a la Implementatión de la Transición Energética en México" (TrEm), which was implemented by GIZ and was specifically responsible for output 3: Introducing the model of municipal energy management systems (KEMS) in Mexico. Here, the Comisión Nacional para el Uso Eficiente de la Energía (CONUEE) was advised on setting up and moderating municipal learning networks. In addition, the members of the networks were empowered through training measures for the implementation of concrete measures and energy system transformation action plans, which were then promoted in selected municipalities.
