Renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and water power play an important - and increasing - role in our nation's energy mix. The growth of clean and domestic renewable energy is an important part of addressing climate change and increasing our energy security.
Energy efficiency and energy conservation can be the most cost-effective and least-polluting means of reducing our demand for energy.
- Renewable Energy Opportunities in Peru
For the past decade, Peru has led South America as the country with the highest average annual growth in GDP (6.4%) and lowest inflation (2.9%). Much of the country's growth has been a result of an expansion in energy-intensive mining, which has caused Peru's energy demand to increase substantially. As a result, Peru has the fourth highest energy demand of any Latin American country, a challenge that is focusing new investment – both international and domestic – on the development of stable, domestically-produced, renewable energy resources. To promote renewable energy development, Peru now offers several policy incentives, including priority dispatch for renewable electricity, accelerated depreciation of up to 20 percent for investments in machinery or equipment that support renewable energy deployment, and technology-specific auctions. The country also features a 5 percent clean energy generation target and a biofuel blending mandate of 7.8 percent. Peru's Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) is currently considering a new target, as it is charged with updating the national renewable energy target every five years.
