DescriptionThis proposed GEF Project (Project) would be fully integrated with the proposed Peru Rural Electrification operation to be co-financed by the Government of Peru (GoP) and the World Bank. Objectives The objectives of the GEF Project are to promote the financing and productive use of renewable energy options within the proposed GoP/Bank Rural Electrification Project. The joint GoP/Bank/GEF operation would: (a) Fully incorporate renewable energy options within the proposed framework for public-private electricity provision in rural areas of Peru that would attract investment from the private sector as well as national, regional and local governments; (b) Provide electricity services to about 20,000 households (one hundred thousand people) and about 200 public facilities, such as schools and health clinics, using both renewable energy sources to serve remote populations; and, (c) Pilot a program to increase productive uses of electricity from renewable sources, that would increase opportunities for income generation in rural areas.
