More than half of Mexico’s population is living in a type of poverty, recognized as a multidimensional challenge with a geographical context. Even though Mexico’s poverty is measured in a multifaceted way, the concept of Energy Poverty has not been studied, per se, by governmental institutions. It is until recently that the study of this concept in Mexico has been undertaken by Mexican researchers, focusing on measuring it at a national and subnational level through various energy services at the household level. However, any research has been done until now to identify people’s energy needs in rural areas in the country. Thus, this study objective is to research this situation through a qualitative-exploratory research approach. Focusing on the particular case of rural areas in Mexico, where more poverty is experienced, and less research has been done. Different available and governmental supported technologies in Mexico are analyzed to address Energy Poverty. While translating people’s daily routines into specific energy needs, which could be overcome and satisfied with the evaluated technologies, to reduce or abate this situation. As the used approach comes with some disadvantages, a bunch of different methodologies has been used to carry out this research and reduced drawbacks. In the first place, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are used to minimize researcher biases and identify the target population at the macro level. In this way, it is diminished the research approach disadvantage of generalization to a broader community. Narrative and thematic analyses are used to investigate in a more refined level people’s energy practices leading to energy necessities, reducing population under-representation by interviewing a larger sample. Finally, Energy Biographies are used to determine participants necessities according to their daily practices concerning energy use in their homes, attenuating researcher biases and increasing research usefulness as a tool for decision making. Additionally, a comparison between people’s energy necessities and different available technologies to tackle them, according to the energy services technologies can provide, are analyzed to see how technologies characteristics fulfill people’s needs. After developing the different methodologies, it can be concluded that many rural communities in Mexico are experiencing Energy Poverty, where the higher is in the Tropical region (south of the country), followed by the Temperate (center of Mexico) and the Extreme Warm one (north of Mexico). Additionally, Energy Poverty in Mexico is mostly related to the fuel that is used for cooking. Whenever technologies are assessed, it will pop up the question if a given technology life’s cycle, is enough to achieve a balance of the benefits against the impacts. Mainly concerning energy poverty, this is highly relevant; because not necessarily having the most up-to-date technology will solve the problem. Instead, having a technology that can be developed with local materials according to user’s needs will reduce the targeted problem and undesired collateral effects. The recommendation for different stakeholders, such as technologies producers, government, and researchers, is to turn around to understand people’s necessities and work towards increasing people’s well-being, instead of creating more needs in these rural communities.
