Eurus Wind Farm

The data indicates that close to two-thirds of the wind-energy parks are controlled by foreign interests. As a result, the government has recently adopted policies to encourage the greater development of renewable energy, within its National Development Plan, its Sectoral Energy Programme, and as part of a new Renewable Energy Law.

Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso. Both projects are scheduled to be completed between and However, constitutional and regulatory limitations exist, which hinder the development of wind energy by the private sector. It provides a ej for renewable energy development, which now needs to be filled in with detail, including a concrete target and incentives.

The violation and destruction of spaces held by indigenous groups to be sacred eneggia significant, such as the example of the Tileme Island in Barra de Santa Teresa, represents yet another type of cultural impact of these projects. In some cases there has been denounced the sale and ceding of communal and ejidal lands jointly owned lands through force and without the consent of the general assemblies of communards and ejidatarios.

National and international organizations have been denouncing the numerous attacks suffered by rights-defenders, opponents to wind-energy projects, and landowners who demand compensation and better contract conditions.

Among the cultural impacts, the above situation creates is the imposing of different culture values, being directed at the indigenous peoples of the region. As an example, according to Bettina Cruz, on 21 March it was shown in the European Parliament that in not one of the wind-energy projects of the Isthmus had there been consultations carried out with affected peoples, nor had any possibility been made so that local peoples could participate in the design of the development plans to which they would be subjected.


This has favoured the development of conventional energy sources in the past, as well as some large hydro and geothermal projects, all exclusively by CFE. In a recent report carried out by different civil organizations from Oaxaca, the violations of the rights of indigenous peoples implied by the planning and execution of developmental megaprojects have eb over the past four years.

The outcome to this irregular session was a physical confrontation and a deepening of communal divisions among neighbors in favor and opposed to the project. Various bodies were created to design a renewable energy strategy and related public policies, which also involve the private sector.

Furthermore, the unjust compensation paid for the rent of such lands is stressed, given that such amounts go much lower than they should: It should ventosaa recalled that the Tehuantepec Isthmus is an important migratory corridor for birds; an estimated 12 million such birds travel through this region every year.

However, questions related to the impacts and effects that projects dedicated to the development of such types of energy have on local people and the environment itself are not often taken into consideration.

A final type of environmental impact is the pollution of soils, rivers, lakes, and aquifers due to the leaking of the oils used in the turbines, in addition to the accumulation energix effluent originating in the construction yards, the erosion of soil and loss of vegetation, the electromagnetic noise vwntosa caused by the increased number of functioning wind-energy plants and, lastly, visual pollution of the landscape.

During the first temporada abierta, an agreement was signed between the CFE and four private companies, committing the CFE to build km of transmission lines from the La Ventosa project site in Oaxaca to connect it to the national grid.

The Mexican Energy Lx bill In Octoberthe Mexican Congress approved the much debated Energy Reform Bill, which includes a renewable energy law to promote and regulate the development of renewables in Mexico: There are presently 15 wind-energy eenrgia in operation with 13 more in different ennergia of planning and development. This is done without regard to the desires of local peoples, the impacts and affects these can cause, and what the benefit and use is expected to be from this generated energy: As an example, communard assemblies from the San Dionisio and San Mateo del Mar municipalities have accused the ejidal president and the mayors of having accepted bribes made by firms to strengthen ties between the two forces, without any concern for the wishes of the community.


In the state of Oaxaca there are currently wind-energy parks operating. Mexico is one of the most promising areas for wind energy development in Latin America with a technical potential of as much as 40 GW1.

MC for the construction of a megawatt project known as La Venta 3, also in enrgia Oaxaca state. There is also the possibility to produce electricity for export to another country, which in practice means the US. Inthe first private autogeneration wind projects were erected and are now undergoing commissioning. The bill put the Energy Ministry SENER in charge of drafting a renewable energy programme, and it called for the development of a national strategy enerbia the sustainable use of energy.

This fund is designed to establish a support system to promote the use of renewable energy.

Wind-energy projects such as that of Barra de Santa Teresa or Bii Hioxho, located in the aquiferous zone of the Superior Laguna, also gravely threaten the flora and fauna of the mangrove ecosystem found in this area which, beyond providing life to a large number of aquatic and bird species, also represents the basis of the productive and nutritional system of fishing communities who live around the Laguna.

Beyond this, acts of criminalization, death threats, and attacks constitute other forms of the most significant political impacts. Since the mids, the development of wind-energy projects in the region of the Tehuantepec Isthmus has been resulting in different sorts of impacts.

There are also other market barriers that have retarded wind development, including most recently the adverse effect of the global financial crisis.
