President Felipe Calderón has submitted a long-term energy plan that proposes to increase to 35% the percentage of electricity obtained from nonfossil fuels by 2026. The ambitious goal, contained the Estrategia Nacional de Energía (ENE) 2012-2026, seeks to provide Mexicans with diversified, adequate, sustainable, high-quality, and low-cost energy.
