TT-Pilot (GEF 4): Promotion and Development of Local Wind Technologies in Mexico

Project Summary

The general objective of the project is to include Mexico as a key player in the world's wind energy market, expanding its wind generation capacity by enabling local development and implementation of wind turbines technologies. The specific objectives are to: i) consolidate the human capacities and skills required for the design of state of the art wind turbines ii) structure a value chain for the production of goods and services at the national level in the wind energy sector and consolidate the capabilities for manufacturing and assembling wind turbines; iii) consolidate the technical capabilities for the operation, testing and certification of wind turbines with a high component of national technology ; and iv) support the development and provide capacity building to promote wind power application through distributed generation by Small Power Producers (SPPs).
