UT Austin has formed a new partnership with Monterrey Tech to help develop a reliable, clean, sustainable and affordable electric power sector for Mexico. The alliance, managed by UT’s Energy Institute, will link Monterrey Tech with more than 100 faculty members at UT in 20 energy-related research centers. The two universities will conduct joint faculty research on energy security, reliability, sustainability, efficiency, affordability and good governance for energy markets, as well as student exchanges, conferences and seminars. The agreement comes on the heels of a separate announcement of the opening of a new UT Austin office in Mexico City aimed at further expanding collaborations with Mexican educational and scientific organizations.
