Energy in Mexico describes energy and electricity production, consumption and import in Mexico.

In 2008, Mexico produced 234 TWh of electricity, of which, 86 TWh was from thermal plants, 39 TWh from hydropower, 18 TWh from coal, 9.8 TWh from nuclear power, 7 TWh from geothermal power and 0.255 TWh from wind power.[2] Mexico is among the world's top oil producers and exporters.

Oil productionEdit

President Lázaro Cárdenas expropriated foreign oil companies in the late 1930s. Since then, Pemex, the national company produces oil in Mexico. Main fields are Chicontepec Field, Cantarell Field and Ku-Maloob-Zaap. In 2008, oil production had declined by 9.2% to 3.96 million barrels per day while natural gas production increased by 14.2% to 6.92 million standard cubic feet per day.[4]

Mexico was the world's 12th largest producer in 2019.[5]

Renewable energyEdit

Geothermal powerEdit

Mexico had the sixth greatest geothermal energy production in 2019.[6][7][8] Mexico is home to the largest geothermal power stations in the world, the Cerro Prieto Geothermal Power Station.[citation needed]
