Mexico Sets National Target of 5% Renewable Energy by 2018

Mexico has set a national target of getting 5 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2018, lower than the 8.2 percent goal in draft policies released earlier this month.

The goal is part of a national development plan issued Tuesday by Mexico’s energy secretary. It’s a step toward reaching the country’s existing long-term target of getting 35 percent of its energy from clean sources by 2024.
