      Original Press Release:

      Oct. 4 -- FMO issued the following news release:

      IDB Invest provides an up to $300 million loan (with FMO contributing $100 million) to ENGIE Energía Peru S.A. (EEP) to finance the construction of the 296.4MW Punta Lomitas greenfield wind farm including its expansion and transmission lines located in the Department of Ica, 300 kilometers south of Lima, the capital of Peru. This is the largest non-conventional renewable energy project in the country to date.

      The financing consists of a fully underwritten IDB Invest loan package of up to $300 million, which includes resources mobilized from the Dutch entrepreneurial development bank (FMO) for $100 million and with BNP Paribas for $55 million.

      The project will contribute to diversify Peru´s energy generation matrix, currently dominated by hydroelectricity and thermal generation. Punta Lomitas will supply approximately 1,7-Gigawatt hours per year of clean energy and reduce the country’s carbon footprint by displacing greenhouse gases emissions.

      IDB Invest’s participation confirms EEP´s alignment with the project’s sustainability and its compliance with national and international standards in evaluation and management of E&S risks and impacts, labor and working conditions, efficient use of resources and pollution prevention, and community health and safety.

      The deal further supports IDB Invest’s commitment to working with the private sector to increase climate action and achieve sustainable growth.

      The deal is expected to contribute to five of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7), Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8), Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9), Climate Action (SDG 13), and Partnership for the Goals (SDG 17).
