This report presents new research on low carbon interventions in the transport sector, including measures to improve vehicle efficiency as well as measures to improve urban transportation. Because a large percentage of transportation energy use occurs in Mexico’s cities, there is significant potential for lowering greenhouse gas emissions by modifying the organization of cities and improving public transportation infrastructure. The report also analyzes a range of energy efficiency options available in Mexico, including efficiency improvements in the electric power and oil and gas industries, and demand-side electricity efficiency measures addressing high-growth energy-consuming activities. It also evaluates a range of renewable energy options.
