Summary:We review most important national and international publication, specially those which has been conducted within the framework of the International Electromagnetic f ield Project of the World Health Organization, for known the biological and health effects of the electric energy fields. The level of population, residential and occupational exposure were revised in principal Peruvian evaluation of electricity services and system realized since 2002 to 2008 with representative samples which included more than 1400 locations measurement. Exposure evaluation showed that the highest exposure levels in Peru came from 220 kV high voltage power lines, However, in most cases (98%) are below the recommended limits. The risk assessment of non-ionizing radiation from electric power network in Peru shows that the health risk is not significant.
