The global has entered a interval of vital alterations concerning the way forward for strength new release, mostly brought on by the obvious exhaustion of hyd- carbons within the close to destiny, and the Greenhouse gases (GHG) influence of alt- ing the weather all over the world. Mexico, as a constructing nation, and because the eleventh-most populated kingdom with the thirteenth-largest territory, and because the proprietor of vital oil creation assets, is an efficient instance of a kingdom desiring to enhance and raise its power iteration. A concerted motion among the e- nomic sectors concerned – either governmental and business – may dras- cally enhance the current scenario concerning the improvement of its alt- local strength assets. the most motivation for organizing the German-Mexican Symposium 2006 strength for the long run: in the direction of a cleanser planet, used to be to get an international viewpoint for altering the current energy-mix in Mexico, presently in keeping with fossil fuels, in the direction of cleanser strength assets. to accomplish this, a variety of suitable issues has to be analysed, comparable to the state-of-the-art of every power style, their capability use and merits, social, monetary, - litical and environmental features, and their inclusion as a true replacement to strength iteration courses. it is going to take time for each kingdom to lessen its dependence on hydrocarbons and to extend its substitute energies share.

Wood residuals, tree branches and other scraps are transported from farms and factories to the biomass power plant. Then, the biomass is burned inside of a furnace. The heat generated translates into steam, and then used to propel turbines and generators. Another use of biomass to generate energy is at the landfill with burning waster products. As garbage decomposes, methane gas is generated and conducted through pipelines to collectors. This landfill gas can be used in many applications, just like normal methane gas.

13. 4 Nuclear Nuclear generation began 50 years ago and now generates as much global electricity as was produced then by all sources. As of December 2005, there were 443 nuclear power reactors which produced electricity around the world. More than 15 countries rely on nuclear power for 25 % or more of their electricity. In some European countries and Japan, the nuclear share of electricity is over 30 %, see Fig. 14. 18 Jaime Klapp et al.
