Observatorio de Innovación Tecnológica para la Transición Energética

The OITTE, by its acronym in Spanish, was created because humankind has become the greatest threat to the health of the planet, having only 12 years to avoid climate catastrophe.

We are at a critical point, where we must take unprecedented measures to mitigate climate change. At the same time, renewable energy technologies have reached maturity and competitiveness, providing an outstanding tool to mitigate climate change. Therefore, the Hub sees the opportunity to integrate a greater number of renewables into our existing systems in order to cut emissions from electricity and transport, which represent 25% and 14%, respectively, of global GHG emissions. The hub believes this can be achieved through technology innovations. However, a specific ecosystem will be crucial for their development and adoption. These conditions will depend on the available information, human capacity, funding sources and enabling public policies. As a result, the hub aims to have a crucial role in the development of this ecosystem, to enable a low-carbon energy transition through technology innovation within the city.

The goal of the project is to position the project at the intersection of the public, private, social and academic sectors, through the institutionalization of knowledge creation, linking sectors, technology development and the promotion of evidence-based decision making, to encourage adoption and innovation technology, to allow a low-carbon energy transition in Mexico. The project seeks to impact in two different areas:

  1. Research: the creation of salient, rigorous and relevant pieces of knowledge that can guide the sectors on how they can enhance technology innovation for a low-carbon energy transition. Also, reporting on important events that affect the pad towards climate change mitigation in Mexico.

  2. Linking sectors: bringing together stakeholders in order to create links between them in order to foster actions that benefit technology innovation; through knowledge transfer, funding sources and policy changes.
