- The wood and polystyrene used as packaging for the batteries that are now part of the Ventanilla Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) were donated to the Municipality of Lima to improve green spaces and bike lanes in the city.
- This initiative is part of the Enel Group's commitment to promoting the circular economy and specifically to the pillar related to generating new life cycles for products.
Lima, March 15th, 2021.- As a result of the commissioning of the Ventanilla Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), Enel Perú has donated wood and polystyrene items to the Metropolitan Municipality of Lima to improve the green spaces and bike lanes in the concession area of the company.
This way, the energy of the BESS Ventanilla transcends borders by transforming waste such as wood into materials to be used in the municipality's new bio-gardens, and by contributing to the improvement of green areas managed by the city. For its part, the donated polystyrene will be used to maintain the rowlocks on bike lanes.
“The circular economy is one of the strategic pillars of Enel Perú, intrinsic in our strategy to promote electricity generation through renewable sources, but it also implies a larger and more ambitious scope. We promote the circular economy as a business model that contributes to the regeneration of natural ecosystems”, said Massimiliano Calamea, Enel Perú's Sustainability Manager.
It should be noted that BESS Ventanilla is the first large-capacity Lithium-Ion Battery Energy Storage System in Peru and represented an approximate investment of USD 10 million. Its infrastructure aims to deliver and absorb energy to and from the electrical system to compensate for the frequency deviations of the interconnected system, which is essential to improve the quality of the energy delivered to customers and increase the stability of the National Interconnected Electric System (SEIN).
