    Los Desafíos Socio Ambientales de la Energía Eólica: Conflicto territorial por la apropiación de la energía eólica en el Istmo de Tehuantepec  

    Source:  Emiliano Castillo Jara | Economics, Environment, Mexico, Publications

    La energía eólica emerge como una alternativa a la crisis ambiental global por su potencial reducción de gases de efecto invernadero. En el caso de México, la construcción de parques eólicos terrestres a gran escala en el Istmo de Tehuantepec, uno de los sitios con mayor potencial eólico en el mundo, promete impulsar el desarrollo sustenable. Sin embargo, el desarrollo de parques eólicos no constituye una estrategia viable de resolución de problemas sociales y ambientales porque ha generado un conflicto entre el capital extranjero, que se apropia del recurso eólico por despojo de tierras, y comunidades del Istmo que se movilizan para demandar la cancelación de los parques eólicos debido a que generan impactos negativos que afectan su territorio y sus formas de organización social. Así, la presente investigación, dirigida a todos los interesados en la problemática ambiental, ofrece una reflexión sobre la viabilidad de la energía eólica con el propósito de abrir perspectivas para la construcción de nuevas formas de producción de energía que coloquen la dignidad de las comunidades y la protección del medio ambiente por encima de cualquier interés privado.

    Socio-environmental Challenges of Wind Power: Territorial conflict over the ownership of wind in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec

    Wind energy is emerging as an alternative to the global environmental crisis for its potention reduction of greenhouse gases. In the case of Mexico, erection of giant land-based wind energy facilities in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, a site with the greatest wind energy potential in the world, promises to boost sustainable development.

    However, the development of wind energy plants does not represent a viable strategy for resolution of social and environmental problems, because it generates conflict between foreign capital, which appropriates the wind resource by dispossession of the land, and Isthmus communities that demand a halt to the wind plants because they have negative impacts on their land and social organizations.

    Therefore, this investigation, directed to all who are interested in environmental issues, offers a sober reflection on the the viability of wind energy with the goal of opening perspectives on the construction of new forms of energy production that places the dignity of communities and protection of the environment above any private interest.
