Development of a major emerging economies of the world could be stopped in 2016 due to lack of energy

Without energy there is no industry , no industry, no development. It’s that simple. Concise Determinant. In a scenario where the economy of a poor country grows at historical rates thanks to the courage of their raw materials and manufacturing potential, the factor energy over the years is starting to become a brake on such industrial expansion, and for all economic activity, more so when energy demand is growing almost, almost at the speed of light. But how can scarce energy in a highly energy thanks to its natural gas reserves and hydroelectric potential? The answer is summed up in two words: social conflicts . And is that the unjustified protests of residents, blinded by the lies dictated by environmental seudodirigentes seeking to defend their own interests, have alerted the industrial sector, since its development reach its roof in a few years for lack of energy projects .

The chairman of the Energy Committee of the National Society of Industries (SNI) of Peru, John Hartley Moran warned that industrial growth could be paralyzed in 2017, due to energy shortages that would be recorded. As explained by the demand in the country is covered only through 2016 and from there is an uncertainty due to energy projects in the pipeline have not been executed. “The growth in demand in Peru is the order of 600 megawatts, equivalent to a central Mantaro , and to meet this growing demand requires large projects and all have environmental restrictions. Energetically we are covered by 2016, but then we do not know what will happen and that makes us worried. Industrial growth would stop, “he said.


Energy Demand

As explained in the central region there are no problems until 2016 as being existing plants and new projects will be ready enough generation to meet the recent demand (9% annually) and derive huge surpluses to the north and south. A different situation exists in the north said, because now the transmission capacity is minimal, so there is no supply to meet strong demand, increasing 14% per year. Product of this is that in northern Peru suffered rationalization of energy by 2011. “This problem could have been avoided if the transmission line-Carhuaquero Carhuamayo had been completed in June 2011 as planned. But there is a community in Ancash which puts the transmission line that passes through their land, which has stopped the energy project, despite being completed by 98%, “he said.

He said that to remedy this situation had to renew the contract with a thermal power station in Trujillo while import from Ecuador , a very high price. Also noted in the south of Peru there is a similar situation, but to a lesser extent, as demand grows to only 4%. However, the lack of energy projects is also denting industrial development in the region. As explained it is building a transmission line Lima-Arequipa-Ilo of 500 kW and provides for the installation of a thermal power generation to 2,000 MW natural gas, the same will be supplied by the southern Andean pipeline, still in project.

No more investments

In accordance to the statement by Hartley, the chairman of Committee of Economic Operation of the National Interconnected System (COES-Sinac) Butrón Caesar said that the government is damaging concession look no hydroelectric projects as it is in danger not only industrial development but entire economy of the country due to a stoppage of private investment. He said not to increase energy supply, appear electricity cuts (as happened in northern Peru) and force employers to self-generate energy (group generators), which is extremely expensive, so you would choose to divert their investments to other countries.

“There is a danger after 2016, because the energy deficit by then stop the growth and drive away investment . For example, many mining projects to see that there is no power in the country would go the other way, just as industrial or agro-industrial projects. The danger can be summarized in stopping the development of the country, “he said. He noted that Peru has enormous energy potential limited in two primary sources: natural gas and hydropower. In the hydro issue, there is a study revealing that have 70.000 MW of electricity.
