About this project


The GEF project will strengthen the capacity of the Peruvian government to identify and structure NAMAs in the energy sector, namely to create incentive for investment in new renewable energy facilities connected to the grid (solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and hydro under 20 MW), and the use of renewable energy in isolated systems (solar, biomass, wind and micro-hydro). The project will build upon existing and planned energy sector mitigation efforts, national development policies, and the national NAMA development and implementation framework. The project will establish priorities within the energy sector, define specific NAMAs with clear and achievable mitigation results, and pilot the implementation of four NAMAs in renewable energy generation, both on and off grid. The project will contribute to the country's attainment of its voluntary mitigation targets in the energy sector, with an expected direct emission reduction of 962,000 tons of CO2 equivalent and an additional indirect emission reduction of 1,600,000 million tons of CO2e. As a positive side effect, NAMAs will generate national benefits related to national economic growth, poverty reduction, competitiveness and energy security.


The objective of the project is to support the government of Peru in the development and implementation of National Appropriate Mitigation Actions in the energy sector.
