The Mexican government expects that foreign investment in the country's renewable energy sector will nearly triple this year, reaching $8 billion and potentially helping states like California meet clean energy requirements, said Carlos Guzmán, the head of Mexico's investment promotions agency, Bloomberg News reported. How advanced is Mexico's renewable energy sector? Should the government and private sector be doing more to promote alternative sources of power and, if so, what steps should be taken? What role should the Mexican renewable energy sector play in supplying California's market, where state utilities are required to get a third of their power from renewable sources by 2020?
