Mexico's 2014 energy reform was designed to convert state utility CFE into a productive and profitable enterprise, and three years in that plan is finally bearing fruit after years of financial losses and under-investment.

The utility, which for decades effectively operated as a monopoly, has begun a process of modernization, aimed at upgrading and expanding the transmission network and increasing the country's generation capacity.

CFE said in 2014 it would invest US$40bn in the modernization and expansion of the national grid.

Parallel to the company's overhaul, the entry of more private players into the generation segment as a result of the auctions under the reform is aiding the country's transition toward cleaner power generation.
