LatAm BEN – Peru

Here is another post in my loose mini-series featuring energy balances of Latin American countries. I had shown Peru energy flows for 2009 in this post, but here is a more recent one for 2017.


This is from page 122 of the official ‘Balance Nacional de Energía 2017’ report published by Ministro de Energía y Minas (MINEM) of Peru. PDF here.

Flows are in terajoules (TJ). Natural gas and hydro energy are the two largest sources. Transformation losses (pérdidas de transformación) amount to 45%. The split on the consumption side separates mining from industry, and we can see that this sector is the largest energy consumers.
