OPTIMISING THE POWER GRID IN BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR


Optimising the power grid in Baja California Sur

The isolated power grid of Baja California Sur is facing severe challenges. Due to the booming tourist industry, the electricity demand will almost double by 2030. The population also demands cleaner power with less emissions and more integration of renewable energy. Several old thermal power plants are required to be mothballed. Significant amounts of intermittent wind and solar power will come online. Currently, the price of electricity price is by far the highest in Mexico.

According to SENER, the Secretary of Energy of Mexico, as much as 584 MW of new thermal generation capacity will be needed in the grid by 2030. This is a remarkable figure, roughly half of the planned total capacity in 2030 which is 1250 MW.
