  • The service will allow industrial customers to generate savings in their energy costs and reduce their environmental impact.
  • The system, in addition to providing backup energy, will supply higher quality energy (higher production).


Lima, May 20, 2021.- Enel X Perú consolidates itself as the pioneer company in the country by installing the first large-scale “behind-the-meter” battery storage system in Peru. Through this service, industrial customers will reduce power charges and transmission tolls registered during peak hours, thus generating considerable savings, while reducing impacts on the environment.

Enel X Perú, with the assistance of ON Energy Storage (ON), a strategic partner for the development of energy storage projects, will provide a 10-year Peak Shaving service to the PAMOLSA company. This service consists of installing high-capacity, smart, and “behind-the-meter” batteries, which will store energy in low demand hours and discharge at peak hours thanks to its artificial intelligence system, in order to reduce its registered power at maximum demand, generating savings through power charges. The system is expected to start operations in late 2021.

PAMOLSA, a Carvajal group company, is the first Enel X client to incorporate this system. However, Enel X Perú and ON are exploring the possibility of installing this technology for clients in other industrial sectors. "Currently, we are discussing it with various companies from sectors as varied as retail and mining," points out Alejandro Barragán, General Manager of Enel X Perú.

“With this initiative, Enel X Perú seeks to implement new, increasingly intelligent, and innovative ways for our customers to make the most of the energy supply. The ‘behind-the-meter’ storage system will allow our clients use technology to transform energy into new opportunities and progress” added the executive.

This system joins the commissioning of BESS Ventanilla by Enel Perú, which will allow the delivery and absorption of energy to and from the electrical system to improve the quality of the energy delivered to customers. With both initiatives, Enel continues to develop innovative projects that contribute to the modernization of the electricity sector.
