The concept of energy sovereignty has been a major topic on the agenda of the current administration, and several initiatives have been implemented to achieve that goal. Some of these include:

  • Strengthening Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX -the state oil and gas company)
  • Modernise and build new refineries in Mexico in order to increase domestic fuel production and reduce dependence on imports
  • To a lesser extent (the priority continuing to produce hydrocarbons), generate renewable energies
  • Strengthen the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and increase its role in the supply of electric power in the country. Measures have been taken to prioritize electricity generation by the CFE over that of private companies
  • Rehabilitate and build new power generation plants, both hydroelectric and thermal
