IGNIS will develop six renewable energy projects in Perú

  • IGNIS will initiate two solar energy projects in southern Peru in 2025 with a capacity of 400 MW.
  • Additionally, the development of four wind projects in northern Peru is planned, which will generate 1,469 MW.

Operating in Peru since 2021, IGNIS will develop six renewable energy projects in Peru, four in the north and two in the south, between 2025 and 2028.

Juan Coronado Lara, IGNIS’s general manager in Peru, detailed that one wind project will be executed in the Piura region and three others in the Lambayeque region, with an expected investment of over one billion dollars. These projects, operational by 2028, will generate a total of 1,469 MW in the National Interconnected Electric System (SEIN).

“The three projects in Lambayeque are already in an advanced stage of development, managing their environmental permits and closely collaborating with local communities to ensure their sustainability,” stated Juan Coronado.

Additionally, the executive confirmed that IGNIS is developing two solar projects, PV Alba and PV Blanca, in the Arequipa region, each with a capacity of 200 MW, with construction scheduled to begin in 2025.

Environmental commitment

Emphasizing the importance of moving towards a cleaner electricity matrix, Juan Coronado Lara maintains that IGNIS’s planned projects in Peru will not only decentralize electricity generation and diversify energy sources but also reduce the impact of climate change by decreasing diesel consumption dependency, resulting in more accessible electricity tariffs for the population in the medium term.

He also stressed that clean and competitive renewable energy opens up new opportunities for Peruvian products in international markets, where the traceability of carbon footprint is increasingly relevant.

While highlighting that sustainability is a fundamental pillar in IGNIS’s philosophy, Juan Coronado emphasized that the company is working to build a more efficient and sustainable energy system, reflected in projects that seek to contribute to the country’s development in social, environmental, and economic aspects.

“Under our commitment to the conservation of the Amazon ecosystem, IGNIS protects 32 hectares of forest in the Las Piedras River basin in Tambopata, in the Madre de Dios region, thanks to an agreement with the NGO Arbio Peru, making us Ancestral Forest Rangers,” Juan Coronado states.

IGNIS has consolidated its presence as one of the main developers of such projects, playing a fundamental role in the country’s energy transition and decarbonization process. Additionally, it has developed a policy of close collaboration with local communities, demonstrating tangible commitment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
