Unlike Canada, in 2005 the electricity infrastructure in Mexico was under federal jurisdiction, controlled by two state companies: Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) and Compañía de Luz y Fuerza del Centro (LyFC). Both companies performed similar activities, including generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, but the latter serviced the central region of the country, including Mexico City, the State of Mexico, and some municipalities of Morelos, Tlaxcala and Puebla; whereas the former serviced the remainder of Mexican territory.
The earth's climate has suffered through many changes over time, with events ranging from ice ages to warm, interglacial periods (such as the present era) documented.
The information for Mexico that is presented in this section was obtained from publicly available databases and reports corresponding to the year 2005, which are part of the INEM 2005. Mexico emissions data and general information about the Mexican power system were compiled from the following sources:
Comisión Reguladora de Energía (CRE)
In the present report, 102 power plants in Mexico were included; 31 of these were independent power producers (IPP) already reporting their emissions through the COA. A summary of the information from these power plants is shown in Table 2.2.
