    Engie Peru: "10% of Peru's energy would be renewable by 2023".

    September 30, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Focusing on the country's energy future, as well as on the challenges and opportunities that this entails, Daniel Cámac, Deputy Country Manager of Engie Peru, highlighted the importance of not deteriorating the support that the current electricity generation gives to the country and revealed that, by next year, 10% of energy in the national territory will be renewable.

      "By 2023, Peru would already have 10% of renewable energy, that is, it would double that energy production that is currently close to 5%. With the current regulation, the incorporation of approximately 700 megawatts of new non-conventional wind and solar renewable generation is close. ENGIE will contribute to this with 260 megawatts from the Punta Lomitas wind project, which is carried out under a private agreement and would not have any impact on the payment made by the consumer", said Cámac during his participation in the Energy Summit at PERUMIN 35th Mining Convention.

      He also pointed out that in order to work on the energy transition it is necessary to incorporate different renewable sources into the system and complement them with low carbon sources, such as natural gas, in order to achieve the highest level of security of supply and economic efficiency, while maintaining the environmental commitment.

      Daniel Cámac mentioned that the objective is to strengthen an electricity system that supplies energy and at the same time generates lower costs in the payment of users.

      "The work is to ensure that the transition takes place in a balanced manner, since moving forward focused on a single criterion would be detrimental to reliability and economy, key components in the sector. Peru demands 24-hour energy supplies and it is on that basis that measures must also be implemented," he added.

      Finally, he highlighted that Engie Energía Perú has been moving in a balanced way and has already closed a diesel plant and is about to close the only coal-fired plant in the country in December this year; and in its place, progress is being made in the Punta Lomitas wind power project to inject 260 megawatts into the system by 2023.
