President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador assumed the presidency a year ago. Energy has been a key part of his government and rhetoric promising “profound and radical” change. While he has not reversed the overarching laws supporting Mexico’s energy market liberalization, which he strongly opposed, he has sought to chip away at it. With much focus on oil and Pemex, it bears noting that his government’s recent efforts also cast doubts on the expansion of renewable energy in Mexico and, in turn, the international effort to fight climate change. On the sidelines of our program in Washington, DC we sat down to catch up with Julio Valle, Joint Director of the Wind Energy Association (AMDEE) and Solar Energy Association (ASOLMEX) in Mexico to share the latest clean energy market developments, policy changes surrounding CELs and the unfolding legal challenges.
