A warehouse is a construction that is made to solve the problems of housing and operation for an industry.

In a warehouse, large spaces are needed, in order to achieve large areas without existence of intermediate supports, in such a way that the warehouse can operate without obstacles or restrictions, and working with a lot of versatility. This is very important because in the large spaces the activities of industrial production, manufacturing, distribution, storage or assembly must be executed.

These kind of industrial buildings should allow maximizing their space with safe structures, reliable materials and specialized facilities for saving resources and the development of industrial activities.

In the industrial park of Bajío, the warehouses are the main construction for the different productions activities. These buildings have specific characteristics which allow seamless operation for the industry.

Characteristics for a warehouse construction:

Speed: a warehouse is very easy and quick to build, since most of the elements are prefabricated. These are built in plants and assembled directly on site.

Economic: the elements forming the armatures are very light. All this helps save, as little labor is needed and is built in a short time.

Elements of a warehouse

  1. The armatures are similar to the beams, and are composed of parts forming a system based on triangles. These work as bonded bars and absorb compressive stress or tension, because they are built of steel.
  2. The columns are vertical elements whose function is to bear the burden of the armatures, wind, impacts and earthquakes
  3. The roof of a warehouse must be built with very light elements. The ideal is to use sheets. Currently on the market, there are thermal and acoustic sheets, as in some industrial buildings it is necessary to isolate the noise and maintain an adequate temperature.
  4. The stringers are a type of beam, which is installed to support the weight of the ceiling sheets.
  5. The partition walls are placed between the columns to define the area.
  6. The retaining walls are used to absorb the thrust of land between the level of the warehouse and the natural terrain. Generally warehouses are built high above the surface.


As part of an warehouse we can find other elements like a water tank, channel stormwater open, bathrooms, office, parking area, loading dock, platform download, and access ramp.

Nature provides all variety of options for generating energy. It is mainly important to know how to convert sunlight, wind, biomass or water energy, into electricity  or heat in the most efficient and sustainable way.

Mexico has abundant renewable energy resources and human resources capable of generating research and development to create the necessary or appropriate technologies and promote a national industry door. Mexico also has a specific legal framework, strategies and programs to make renewable energy that have greater participation in the country.

  • Potential of renewable energy in Mexico

Several studies on the potential assessment of renewable energy in the country estimate that Mexico has sufficient resources to meet the energy needs efficiently and safely.

The industrial parks Santa Fe I and Santa Fe II localized in Guanajuato Inland Port have photovoltaic parks, which supply renewable energy to the industries in the complex and the region.

If solar potential is successfully exploited, it would be sufficient for an area of 388.35 mi² equipped with photovoltaic systems in Sonora or Chihuahua, to generate all the electricity that this country needs today.

Otherwise the potential of exploitable wind is estimated to reach 50,000 MW. An assessment with satellite images in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec showed a potential of about 10,000 MW, including possible facilities at the sea.

Additionally, the potential for electricity generation through mini-hydro plants is estimated for 3250 MW. The potential of bioenergy, goes far beyond that is done today. It is estimated that the total potential could reach 4500 PJ / year.

As for geothermal energy, it has not made a thorough assessment of its potential yet, but there is a estimated that there could reach more than 20,000 MW of installed capacity.

The Mexico’s Government has a specific and comprehensive legal framework for development of renewable energy. This legal framework has the objective to take advantage of the country potential in the clean energy area.

  • Advantage of renewable energy in Mexico for the industry

The extended implementation of this renewable energy in some regions of Mexico generated in these areas become into autonomous zones, as they can develop energy by themselves, generate an economic industry around it and exploiting its full benefits for those who live in the region and for companies installed there.

Finally, we can say that other advantages of renewable energy is that they are clean energies because they do not generate any pollution or consequences and the maked resources everywhere are safe. In addition, they do not require large companies or much investment to be generated, allowing anyone to produce them when they consider some basic measures for this purpose.

The great potential of Mexico in the renewable energy area, specially in Guanajuato, represents an excellent opportunity for business or investment, considering the government’s support for this particular and inexhaustible sources of energy.
