Developing a Bioenergy Strategic Model to support Energy Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action in Peru

As of: January 2022

The project developed a model for the strategic management of bioenergy in Peru. It aimed to provide families in rural areas with access to low cost renewable energy. At the same time, end users in cities were to be provided with a “greener” source of energy in order to achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The scheme consisted of six elements: (i) increasing the demand for biofuels by promoting bioenergy technologies and raising awareness for this type of energy; (ii) strengthening business initiatives with technology suppliers and retailers in Peru; (iii) designing and implementing mechanisms for the financing of bioenergy projects; (iv) developing a standardization system as well as a framework for research and development; (v) providing technical assistance; (vi) establishing and developing a monitoring system. The project contributed to the Bioenergy Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) and it cooperated across sectors with several ministries.
