Promoting clean energy generation


CDM Project

Recurso 4

Chaglla Hydroelectric Power Plant promotes sustainable development at a local, regional and global level through the generation of clean energy in Peru

Fostering the diversification of energy production

The Chaglla Hydroelectric Power Plant contributes to the generation of renewable energy, displacing the use of electricity generated in thermal power plants, which are powered through coal, oil or gas.

By doing so, this avoidance project reduces the emission of greenhouse gasses, providing a sustainable option in the diversification and increase of energy production in the country.

The project is located in the territory of the rural community Pillao, in the provinces of Pachitea and Huanuco, in the Department of Huánuco, Peru. 

The project

About the project

The Chaglla Hydroelectric Power Plant is registered in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM-9116).

It consists in the installation and operation of a new hydroelectric power plant in the Department of Huánuco, Peru.

What is the project's contribution?

The implementation of the Chaglla Hydroelectric power plant will displace the electricity generation from thermal power plants. This translates in the reduction of an estimated 1,814,613 ton CO2 per year over the project’s lifetime. In addition, this project:

Promotes, develops and strengthens the renewable energy sector in Peru

Creates employment opportunities for the local communities in the nearby area

Contribute to technology and know-how transfer while requiring specialized labour.

The project, the community and the area

The installation and operation of the Chaglla Hydroelectric Power Plant has a direct and meaningful impact to the area, not only in terms of climate change mitigation, but also in the sustainable development at local, regional, and global level. The project:

  • Reduces the thermal power plant operation and the local pollutants emissions such as NOx, SOx, and PM

  • Diversifies the sources of electricity generation in Peru

  • Facilitates the transition away from fossil fuel-fired electricity generation.

  • Helps the country improve its hydrocarbon trade balance through reduction of oil derivates consumption

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a flexible market mechanism established under the UNFCCC that allows a country with an emission-reduction or emission-limitation commitment under the Kyoto Protocol (Annex B Party) to implement an emission-reduction project in developing countries


CORSIA elegible credits

CORSIA is the first global market-based measure for any sector and represents a cooperative approach that moves away from a “patchwork” of national or regional regulatory initiatives.

It offers a harmonized way to reduce emissions from international aviation, minimizing market distortion, while respecting the special circumstances and respective capabilities of ICAO Member States.

How does this project contribute to the SDG’s?

The activities implemented as part of this project will contribute to the achievement of Agenda 2030’s Sustainable Development Goals in the beneficiary communities, with a special focus on:
