After his Landslide Election in July, López Obrador Announced Plans to Move the Headquarters of the Energy Ministry from Mexico City to the Oil-Producing State of Tabasco

Mexico’s president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador has given out mixed signals regarding plans for the future of the country’s electricity sector, limiting his proposals to a championing of hydroelectricity and community-focused renewable energy projects, while his pick for the head of state utility CFE has provoked surprise.

While expressing hostility during his electoral campaign to the 2013 energy reform, which ushered in auctions for electricity generation projects as well as allowing for foreign investment into the upstream oil and gas sector for the first time since 1938, López Obrador (known by his acronym AMLO) has since moderated his stance, al-though his plans for the electric power sector remain vague. Shortly after his landslide election in July, López Obrador (pictured, below) announced plans to move the headquarters of the energy ministry from Mexico City to the oil-producing state of Tabasco, and to move Pemex’s central offices to Ciudad del Carmen in neighboring Campeche state, as part of his decentralization plans.
