2019 was marked by political and regulatory uncertainty that generated doubts about the opening of the market. Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) expressed renewed interest in fossil fuel generation, while also questioning awarded pipeline contracts as the national power utility Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) initiated international arbitration proceedings against seven delayed projects. Likewise, the administration raised serious questions about the future role of private and foreign investment in power generation, specifically renewables. Despite the uncertainty, the market continues to move forward as new infrastructure conceived and procured during the initial market reform are now coming to reality. Nearly 2.7 GWdc of solar and 1.5 GW of wind capacity was connected, and close to 1,200 kilometers (745 miles) of additional pipelines finished their construction, boosting US piped imports and relieving pressure from domestic supply as it continues to decline.
