In April 2013, Mexico implemented the Estrategia Nacional de Energia 2013-2027, which set the frame for major evolution of the energy sector over the next fifteen years and aims to increase non-fossil fuel based power generation to 35%, established in the Law for the Development of Renewable Energy and Energy Transition Ficing (LAERFTE).

The national strategy focuses on two main objectives. First, establish the sector as a driver of development and economic growth, and second increase the access and consumption of energy of all Mexican population. Due to its own nature, the strategy focuses on strategic issues in the long term, like the diversification of the energy mix, setting targets for the shares of non-fossil energies, the increase in the production of crude oil and natural gas from national resources and national petrochemical industry.  

The improvement of energy efficiency in all sectors, the reduction of the environmental impacts of the energy system and the enhancement of the functionality are considered as Integration Elements in order to consolidate an integral energetic system. In that sense, the ENE delimits the guidelines to achieve the main objectives and policy measures of energetic sector.
