This paper analyses how climate change affects electricity demand in the city of
Huancayo, Peru, in order to find the relationship between electricity demand and temperature in
degree Celsius in the last 20 years, using Spearman correlation, based on heating degree days
(HDD), cooling degree days (CDD) and electricity demand data in Mw, the conversion of
average temperatures to degree days showed that only heating degree days (HDD) were found,
our statistical results show that there is a moderate inverse relationship, which means that in the
last 20 years the increase in electricity demand was partially due to lower temperatures, since
these cause higher heating needs and thus increased electricity demand. It is suggested that the
research can be carried out in different parts of Peru, since the results may vary due to the
diversity of climates and it is also of utmost importance to work carefully with the temperature
data, to have accurate results. This gives us a notion that energy reserves should be prepared, and
the use of renewable energies must be implemented with greater emphasis.
