The project intends to generate environmental benefits by supporting new renewable energy generation plants that help to mitigate climate change. If the renewable energy plants were located within the EU they would fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Directive (2011/92/EU), requiring the competent authorities to determine whether an environmental impact assessment (EIA) is required. Following Peruvian national legislation, a full EIA is mandatory for such projects, and thus, it has been carried out by the Promoter. The processes and their conclusions will be assessed at appraisal. Compliance with the EIB's environmental and social standards and amongst others, the principles of relevant EU Directives, will be verified at appraisal.
The Bank will require the Promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
