Javier Cuervo

Lead Energy Specialist


At the IDB, I have led projects related to energy reform, transmission and distribution, solar utility scale, rural electrification, hydro generation and modernization of utilities. Some of my current responsibilities are the coordination of IDB’s agenda supporting access to energy services under the SE4ALL framework and the supervision of energy projects in Suriname that include rural electrification and the upgrade of grid infrastructure. I have also worked in Guatemala (rural electrification), Mexico (energy reform), Colombia (hydropower and climate change), El Salvador (energy reforms and solar utility scale), Honduras (reform of the utility and regulatory framework) among others. I have led or co-led projects brought to the IDB board for more than 1.5 billion dollars in the last ten years.
