SUBJECT: PERU WILL PARTICIPATE IN WIREC 2008 ENERGY
CONFERENCE

REF: STATE 138428

1. Per reftel, Econoff invited the Government of Peru,
through the MFA, to send an official delegation to the March
2008 Washington International Renewable Energy Conference
(WIREC). Econoff provided details on the event, the website
link, and an explanation of the ministerial-level nature of
the event. On October 11, Carlos Briceno of the MFA's North
America Office replied that Peru would participate, but that
it was too early to know who would lead the delegation. He
suggested the formal invitation be sent to Minister for
Foreign Relations Jose Antonio Garcia Belaunde. The GOP
would then reply at a later date as to the head and
composition of its delegation.

2. Renewable energy issues are at the forefront of GOP
concerns at the moment. The GOP official most involved in
these issues is Vice Minister of Energy Pedro Gamio, of the
Mining and Energy Ministry (MEM). Peru's current renewable
energy projects include biofuels, hydro energy, solar energy,
and wind energy. The GOP has specifically requested USG
assistance in developing a biofuels industry.

3. Post suggests that the following non-government entities
