  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    SENER, Secretaría de Energía, is the Ministry that coordinates the energy sector.

    CRE (Comisión Reguladora de Energía) is in charge of regulating the gas and electricity sectors since 1995.

    SENER prepares the energy plan (National Energy Strategy, ENE) within the framework of the National Development Plan. The last update occurred in 2014. The main objectives of ENE ...

  • Energy Companies


    State-owned company Pemex dominates the production (tenth largest world oil producer in 2017), transformation, and distribution of crude oil and oil products. In 2008, the Senate adopted a bill opening Pemex to foreign capital, and gave Pemex greater managerial and financial autonomy. The energy reform adopted in 2013-2014 ended Pemex's monopoly and granted it greater flexibility to work ...
