Claudia Sheinbaum boasts an extensive understanding of the energy sector, backed by her formal training in physics and a Ph.D. in energy engineering. Before getting into politics, she studied energy efficiency in wood-burning stoves and lightbulbs. She also contributed to IPCC reports, underscoring her dedication to global environmental issues.
When she was mayor of Mexico City, Sheinbaum championed bus electrification and installed solar panels at the Central de Abastos, the largest food market in Latin America. Her dual roles as a scientist and government official seemingly indicate green credentials. However, the reality is that Sheinbam has chosen politics over science.
This week, we aim to gain a deeper understanding of her vision for energy policy — especially whether Sheinbaum will change critical policies or align herself with her mentor, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO).
- How Sheinbaum might approach energy sovereignty
- Her views on a cap on private electricity generation
- What role renewable energy initiatives might play in her administration
Bonus: A primer on Jose Merino, a top Sheinbaum whisperer available to our subscribers.
