Peru Power Report Q3 2015 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon May 25 2015

We maintain our positive outlook for Peru's power sector and we expect total power capacity and generation to grow by an annual average of 4.8% and 6.4% between 2015 and 2024. The energy-intensive mining sector, a sound business environment and an expanding cons umer base will continue to drive economic growth in Peru - and by extension fast growth in power consumption . Growth in electricity generation will come primarily by additional hydropower and thermal (particularly natural gas-fired) capacity, as the government's focus on renewables remains limited . D elays to project implementatio n remain the biggest threat to our upbeat growth forecast s for this market .

Our 10-year outlook for Peru's power sector is bright, with total electricity generation to grow from 48.6 terawatt hour (TWh) in 2015 to 79.9TWh in 2024. Our Country Risk team expects Peru's real GDP to expand by an average annual rate of 4.5% between 2015 and 2024. Faster economic activity will be driven by an expanding middle class and continued investment in the energy-intensive mining sector (the industry reportedly received total investment of USD 8.4bn in 2014). These factors will bring about strong growth in Peru's power needs, supporting our forecast for total electricity consumption to expand at an average annual rate of 5.4% over the next decade.

As a result of progress in the development of Peru's vast hydropower project pipeline, this quarter we have upwardly revised our 10-year forecasts for total power capacity and generation, which we now expect to grow by an annual average of 4.8% and 6.4%, respectively, between 2015 and...
