Analyzing the determinants of the financial and operational performance of energy infrastructure could help achieve increased energy production with less investment, and tap significant new capital in pension and sovereign wealth funds by improving investor and stakeholder confidence in performance. The Global Infrastructure Project Research Network (GIPRN) is developing a unique data resource that allows for the quantitative analysis of the factors, conditions, governance structures and stakeholder engagement strategies influencing the financial and operational performance of major energy and transportation infrastructure projects across the world. This database will advance research on how we plan, regulate, finance, govern, manage, develop and maintain the infrastructure that supports our societies. This project will code 65 energy projects in the U.S., South America, Asia and Africa.
