As part of MORENA’s “Internet for everyone” initiative, CFE published the auction bases for a 50km concession in which national and international companies will be able to participate under specific requirements. The Ministry of Energy published an initiative through the National Commission of Regulatory Improvement (CONAMER) to reorganize CFE’s generation subsidiaries, changing previous competitiveness conditions established by the Energy Reform. Manuel Bartlett, Director General of CFE, met with WANO officials to review and optimize the Laguna Verde nuclear facility, which accounts for almost 4 percent of the country’s electricity generation. The government’s priorities are clear, but a massive electricity shutdown in the Yucatan peninsula raised questions about the transmission and distribution strategy.
In a global landscape, important companies in the oil and gas sector are looking to renewables. During CERA Week, Shell announced its intention to become the largest electricity company in the world by 2030. Following the trend of storage startups acquired by European energy giants, Wärtsilä took over Greensmith’s business. Tesla, meanwhile, announced new directives as it changes course on strategy.
