15 Conclusions In order to meet the commitment expressed in the National Energy Strategy, published in February 2010 and February 2011to generate 35% of electricity on the basis of clean sources, this energy strategy has three main thrusts: energy security; economic and productive efficiency and environmental sustainability. However, this strategy lacks a long-term policy regarding energy, which is a strategic area for combating poverty and promoting the country s sustainable industrial development. The Instrumentation of mechanisms that will send the desired signals for the development of clean technologies was mentioned as an action and there was a failure to define a clear commitment to tax fossil fuel energies and to promote renewable technologies (solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, ocean, hydraulic, etc.) Continue the uncertainty regarding there is 6, 899 MW of new clean technology which will have to be defined over the next year and for which tenders will have to be requested. This means that Mexico is not working to meet the commitment expressed in the National Energy Strategy, published in February 2010 and February 2011 to generate 35% of electricity on the basis of clean sources.
