Juan Sartori, chairman of Union Group, said in a recent interview on Bloomberg TV that Latin America and Peru in particular offer good energy investment opportunities.

In the interview, Sartori emphasized Peru’s continued strong economic growth, estimated to reach 7 per cent this year.

Combining this with a rise in energy demand makes Peru an attractive destination for investors, particularly in the hydroelectric power sector, he concluded.

Union Group is currently building two hydropower stations in Peru, with a total installed capacity of 27 MW.

The projects represent an investment of $100m and are expected to begin operations no later than December 2015.
