  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MEM) is in charge of the energy sector, through three main Directorates: the General Directorate of Hydrocarbons (DGH), the General Directorate of Electricity Hydrocarbons (DGE) and the General Directorate for Energy Efficiency (DGEE).

  • Energy Supply


    Gas production increased by about 85% between 2010 and 2016, reaching 14.6 bcm, and then decreased to 12.6 bcm in 2018. It had increased sharply after 2004, when it was around 1 bcm, following the start of production at the Camisea field (Pluspetrol). The Camisea fields (Block 56 and 88) account for around 82% of the national gas production (2018).

  • Energy Prices


    Oil products are subject to the IGV (General Tax on Sales) of 18%, and to the ISC (Selective Tax on Consumption) which varies according to the nature of the fuel. In 2018, the ISC was established around PEN 25-28c/litre (US$7.5-8.4c/litre) for gasoline and PEN 33-37c/litre (US$10-11c/litre) for diesel, thus accounting for around 14% and 12% of the prices, respectively.

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2018, per capita energy consumption was 0.77 toe, which is around 25% below the South American average (around 1.3 toe). Electricity consumption per capita is 1 480 kWh.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Peru has been faced with a significant energy demand growth since the mid-2000s, and consequently requires its energy supply capacities to be substantially expanded. According to Peru's National Energy Plan 2014-2025, the country aims to attain a 60% renewables share in 2025 (of which 54% from hydro).
