25 October 2018. After 10 years of continued work in the country, EnDev Peru will come to an end by December 2018. During this time, the project has provided technical assistance and shared its experience with a large number of public and private actors always following one primary objective: that more households gain access to energy in order to reduce energy poverty and improve the quality of life for Peruvian families. Until mid-2018, the project had achieved to provide more than two million Peruvians with improved access to energy through various technologies ranging from improved cookstoves to solar systems and grid connections.
