© 2018 IEEE. After undergoing an unprecedented energy reform, Mexico is poised to significantly grow its renewable energy share, and evolve from 80 MW installed solar photovoltaics (PV) capacity in 2015, to more than 6 GW by 2022. The impact on the overall electrical grid is therefore a crucial element to determine where the investments should be allocated -both in generation, and transmission-, to be optimally deployed. In this contribution, we model the generation, transmission and distribution assets in Mexico and optimize the investment in capacity to meet policy goals under three different plausible scenarios.
