Total Energy Consumption
In 2019, per capita energy consumption was 0.78 toe, which is around 25% below the South American average (around 1.3 toe). Electricity consumption per capita is 1 530 kWh.
Total energy consumption increased very rapidly between 2006 and 2018, driven by rapid economic growth at an average rate of 5%/year, but decreased slightly in 2019 to 25 Mtoe.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production has been stable at around 5 Mt since 2017 (5.3 Mt in 2019), after a decrease of almost 30% between 2010 and 2016.
The Nor-Peruano pipeline (854 km), with a capacity of 200 kb/d and which transports oil from Saramuro (Loreto) to the port of Bayovar (Piura), began operations in 2017 after one year of inactivity following damages inflicted by third parties in 2015.
Peru has a total refining capacity of 200 kb/d, distributed in 2 large refineries (above 50 000 bbl/d) and 4 smaller refineries.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
In 2020 Peru updated its first NDC setting a GHG emissions reduction target of 30% (to 208.8 MtCO2eq) compared to a BAU scenario. The GHG emission cut target could be further increased to 40%, or 179 MtCO2eq, with international support through bilateral, multilateral cooperation and implementation of mechanisms under the Paris Agreement. In addition, the updated policy document identifies mitigation measures for the 2021-2030 period, as well as strategic tasks on adaptation.
