Peru President: Renewable energies contribute to closing gaps

10:44 | Lima, Nov. 21.

President Martin Vizcarra affirmed the use of renewable energies will lead to closing the gaps in access to electricity on a national level.

"It is one of our goals as a Government. We want basic services to reach out to all citizens. We need all Peruvians to have access to water and electric energy," the Head of State expressed. 

Likewise, the top official pointed out renewable energies contribute to greater connectivity. 

It should be noted there are areas —in the Inca country— where conditions are favorable for the development of wind and solar energy.  

"We can reach out to our nation's Andean zones with this type of renewable energy," he added. 

Furthermore, the statesman indicated this subject makes a difference when it comes to achieving long-term sustainable development. 

In this sense, President Vizcarra emphasized this type of energy also contributes to environmental protection, which is necessary for both Peru and the rest of the world. 

The Head of State went on to add that by focusing on these two key factors —gap closing and environmental protection— quality of life and competitiveness will improve across regions for the benefit of the population. 

Therefore, he reaffirmed his commitment to working on achieving these goals and urged private companies, as well as the academy, to join forces aimed at accomplishing these objectives by the Independence Bicentennial (2021)

Remarks were made on Tuesday night during the closing ceremony of the 4th Global Energy Forum "Progress and challenges in the use of renewable energies."
