Book Section: A Technology Assessment System Of The Alternative Energy Sources (Sun And Wind) For Rural Communities In Mexico

Abstract
The generation and exploitation of energy are intimately linked to the growth and development of a country. The energy policy that prevails around the world, including Mexico, is mainly based on the use of fossil fuels (hydrocarbons), which have impacted the environment in a considerable way, and will not be able to accomplish the compromises of a sustainable development policy. It is necessary to modify the actual paradigm of the energy generation and its use, by means of a modification of the national energy policies, which must internalize into the decission-making processes, the conditions of energy and human resources, that identify and characterize the different regions of Mexico. Furthermore, this change of paradigm must include the use of alternative energy resources (geothermal, solar, aeolic, oceanic) in terms of diminish the economic and environmental costs that the present energy policy had produced/provoked in the country.
