The University Network is a research and development platform that aims to advance research in the energy sector, in collaboration between the IDB and academic research centers in Latin America and the Caribbean. He goes to the meeting of research centers and universities in the region that are currently producing quality content. Its benefits include participation in long-term research projects and support in the generation of knowledge products. It will also finance research projects based on the guidelines identified by the IDB and the University Network.

Gigawatts (GW) research projects are academic research projects carried out within the Network of Universities of the Energy HUB. These projects allow the development of new indicators, as well as the continuous collection of data with special emphasis on the issues of access, integration, energy security, sustainability, innovation, regulation and governance.
