Jorge Chávez Airport will be the first Peruvian air terminal to use energy from renewable sources

Lima Airport Partners (LAP), operator of Jorge Chávez International Airport (AIJC) and ENGIE Energía Perú, a Peruvian power generation company, signed an important contract for the supply of 100% renewable energy for the first air terminal in Peru, as well as for its mega expansion project. Through this contract, LAP will be able to supply its operations with energy from 100% renewable sources, backed by I-REC International Certification. This supply agreement is for a contracted power of up to 28.8 MW and is valid until December 2031, starting in September 2021 for the expansion project and from January 2022 for the existing terminal. "In the framework of our sustainability policy and our commitment to contribute to the mitigation of climate change, the agreement reached with ENGIE Energía Perú will allow us to continue expanding our operations of the existing terminal and the construction of the new terminal, growing in a sustainable and responsible way with society and the environment, using 100% renewable energy," said Turgay Kircar, LAP's Central Operations Manager. It should be noted that with this contract, LAP estimates that it will contribute to avoiding the annual emission of approximately 15,000 tons of CO2e into the environment. This will reduce between 99% and 100% of the greenhouse gas emissions generated by electricity consumption. "At ENGIE, we are committed to helping our customers be part of the energy transition to a carbon neutral economy. This 100% renewable energy contract with LAP represents a clear example of the commitment of both companies to seek energy solutions that are increasingly sustainable and beneficial to the environment," said Daniel Cámac, Commercial Vice President of ENGIE Energía Perú. ENGIE Energía Perú is one of the largest power generation companies in the country. With 24 years in the Peruvian market, it is part of the ENGIE Group, the largest independent power producer in the world, with 170,000 employees in 70 countries. Its purpose is to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy, offering low-carbon electricity generation, renewable energy and energy infrastructure. Finally, LAP remains firmly committed to sustainability, to provide a unique, simple and efficient service experience, and to be an airport that promotes development for all.
