Head of IRENA and Peruvian Minister Discuss Renewables in Peru
Today, IRENA's Director-General Adnan Amin, sat down with the Peruvian Minister of Energy and Mines, Eleodoro Mayorga, to discuss the evolution of the Peruvian energy sector. They discussed the integration of renewable energy into Peru's system as well as how IRENA can assist the country in reaching its goal of 60% of electricity from renewable sources by 2024 as recently announced in the Peruvian Energy Plan.
Earlier this year, the Peruvian Government and IRENA cooperated on a Renewables Readiness Assessment for the country. The assessment identifies further actions that need to be taken to expand the share of renewables in Peru, as well as how to better complement rural electrification and improve on-going efforts to foster the development of bio fuel in the country.
