Mexico’s new president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, has suspended the country’s fourth long-term clean-energy tender in order to revise its “objectives and reach”, as part of a wave of changes being made across the Mexican government.

The suspension is effective 4 December, and the government didn’t say when the revision would be completed nor when the tender would be reactivated.

Cenace, Mexico’s grid operator and regulator who organises the power auctions, said the suspension was necessary to allow more time for the new administration take control of the tender.
