In brief: Mexico’s López Obrador outlines green energy plan

*Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has outlined plans to develop renewable energy projects in the state of Sonora. The plan focuses on expanding solar energy generation and lithium production in the state, in which a new solar power plant is currently under production in the city of Peñasco. López Obrador said the government was looking to replicate the Peñasco plant “four, five times” across the state, with transmission lines going up towards Baja California state and the US border. The president said Plan Sonora also included developing lithium production in the state, where the country’s largest lithium reserves are located, and developing the electric vehicle (EV) industry. He said the plan also explored the possibility of producing batteries, presumably for EVs, given lithium is a key component for EV batteries. López Obrador said he would present Plan Sonora to the US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, who will visit Sonora at the end of the month.
