First Electric Buses Will Start Operating In Three Months


The era of electric cars enters the Peruvian market little by little. Engie Energía Peru – the largest energy generator in the country – told Gestión, that the first electric buses for Lima will start operating in approximately three months.

It will consist on a pilot project that will develop in several stages, initially with the import of a bus, and – depending on the demand it generates – more could be added, informed Daniel Cámac, deputy country manager for Peru for the aforementioned company, to Gestión.

“Our idea is to install electric car chargers service stations in Lima to provide the charging of electric vehicles and buses, so we are buying – as a pilot – electric buses for the capital”, Cámac explained.

This initiative will transport private-sector passengers, and will not yet be available for public transportation.

The entrepreneur commented that the main interest of Engie is that electric mobility is developed massively in Peru for both private and public transport and that charging stations, can be implemented.

What we want is to replicate some actions we have done in Chile, for example, in which we are installing 100 public chargers throughout the city of Santiago. In Lima, we are thinking of developing schemes like that and trying to take the first steps to make electric mobility a massive reality”, he said.
