NUPEI | Núcleo de Pesquisa em Energia e Infraestrutura

Mission and Vision


NUPEI develops cutting-edge research in the areas of energy and infrastructure, serving as a focal point for innovative research on these topics in Brazil and a bridge for exchange of knowledge between business, practitioners and academia.



The transition to a sustainable energy matrix is a crucial issue for Brazil and for the world. On the other hand, the country’s development potential will only be realized if there are significant investments in infrastructure. In this sense, NUPEI aims to be an attractive partner for the industry by developing pioneering research aimed at helping businesses achieve their energy goals, and to propose public policy solutions to increasing the volume and facilitate infrastructure investments.
