CATALYSTS OF THE ENERGY TRANSITION
Innovation in the sustainable use and generation of thermal and electric energy produced with solid biofuels.
Our mission as a cluster:
We are building a processing center to create a dynamic energy transition in Mexico. We innovate in sustainable and efficient thermal- and electric-energy use and generation through solid biofuels (SBF). We also provide information that detonates technological innovation, training, decision-making criteria, public-policy proposals, and highly skilled technical and scientific human resources.
Our Vision for 2030:
To secure a Mexican energy system in which solid biomass can account for one-fourth of the total primary energy in the country. Biomass energy’s contribution should be fully sustainable, and its efficient use should generate employment and wellbeing in the rural sector and satisfy heating and electric energy demand in the industrial and residential sectors in a way that is competitive and reduces contributions to greenhouse gas emissions.

Our Objectives as a Cluster:
To structure and continuously update a geographical information system that will allow us to evaluate the sustainable availability of several biomass resources that are appropriate and available for the production of solid biofuels at different scales and for different final uses.
To generate physical, logistical and economic models to evaluate the viability of using biomass resources for the production of solid biofuels and their entry in the national energy market.
To generate proposals for technical guidelines and quality standards for solid biofuels.
To establish benchmark labs for the analysis and quality verification of SBF and its devices.
To develop and test modern, clean, and efficient technologies for solid biomass combustion and heat transfer for low-voltage heating in our nation’s residential sector.
To spread, promote, and test the application of efficient technologies for solid biomass when it comes to generating and cogenerating heat and electricity in Mexico.
To transfer, test, and showcase advanced SBF technologies for the private and government sectors as well as for NGOs and civil society, while duly protecting intellectual property rights.
To evaluate the environmental, economic, and social sustainability of the production and use of SBF, its environmental impact, its consequences, and multiple benefits.
To evaluate and propose public policies to efficiently promote SBF in the national energy grid.
To develop the necessary institutional, technical, and human-resource capabilities to promote the development of SBF in Mexico.
To solidify the foundations of technical and scientific knowledge needed to maximize solid biomass participation in the generation of renewable energy and in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
To promote exchange and synergy among other clusters in CEMIE-Bio.
To establish an economic management model that seeks financial sustainability for the cluster in the medium and long-term.
