The Observatory of Energy and Sustainable Development is an academic program seeking to produce independent analysis and opinion about Uruguay’s energy sector in all its dimensions: economic, technical, legal, environment, social and of international affairs.

Through studies and research focused in the situation of the energy sector in Uruguay and the region, the observatory will seek recognition as a reference for the energy sector. Its works and conclusions should be useful to the different players, utilities, private and state owned companies, banks and investors, regulators and government offices, and the public in general.

With an independent point of view, we aim to produce specific knowledge and information about the energy sector, contributing in the sustainable development of our country and region, through a multidimensional approach that integrates the economic, technological, environmental, legal and social issues. Our activities should also foster the development of qualified human resources.

We seek to be recognized by all players as a valuable reference for analysis and prospective studies of the country’s and region energy sector, contributing to a constructive debate with all the sector’s stakeholders, public, private and of the community. 


The Observatory carries out studies on different subjects related to strategic issues of the energy sector, and periodic reports about the situation of the sector. It organizes meetings with strategic partners to discuss key issues, and fosters academic research, supporting the development of academic programs. Specifically, it is closely related to the Masters Program in Energy Management, at our School of Engineering.

We are developing strategic alliances with the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas, in Madrid, the Fundación Bariloche, of Argentina, CAF (Bank of Latin America), and IADB. We have received support from Fundación Avina and several private companies.
