The National Electric System Development Plan 2022-2036 (PRODESEN)

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2022
PRODESEN sets out the annual plan of the national electricity system for the next fifteen years. It also specifies the national energy policy in the context of electricity, and in accordance with the National Development Plan 2019-2024

PRODESEN consists of nine Chapters and two Annexes:
  1. Overview;
  2. Legal framework;
  3. Energy transition in Mexico (including a section on how climate change requires a transformation of the energy system);
  4. Planning criteria for the incorporation of power plants into the national electricity system;
  5. Infrastructure of the national electricity system
  6. Demand and consumption 2022-2036 (including different prognoses for this period of time)
  7. Indicative Programme for the Installation and Removal of Power Plants (PIIRCE);
  8. Expansion and Modernisation Programmes of the RNT and of the Elements 149 of the RGD that correspond to MEM; and
  9. Programme for the Expansion and Modernisation of General Distribution Networks Not Corresponding to the Wholesale Electricity Market.

Annex 1 concerns the infrastructure of the national electricity system. Annex 2 provides a progress report on clean energies. 

In the PIIRCE planning scenario for 2022 - 2025, 16,568 MW of added capacity is planned for with 55% of clean energy. For the period of 2026 - 2036, PIIRCE plans an added capacity of 39,510 MW (including the DG capacity based on solar PV of 6,679 MV) with a share of 83.4% of clean energies. 

It also sets the goal of generating electricity with 35% clean energy by 2024.
