Philippines Renewables Report

BMI View :   Energy demands in the Philippines continue to grow , and the coun try now faces a potential short fall in energy supply in the summer of 2015. The government is keen to reduce its reliance on expensive fuel imports and develop domestic production capacity in order to lessen the cost burden of electricity and av oid the threat of rolling black outs. This has resulted in a range of new projects arriving in the pipeline , however , it remains to be seen if the measures will be sufficient to avoid power cuts.

The government of the Philippines set ambitious renewable energy targets under the Renewable Energy Act of 2008 and the National Renewable Energy Programme (NREP), including a target of 15,304MW of installed renewables capacity by 2030. These targets were supported by the introduction of a Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) programme to encourage investment from the private sector. Although there are lingering concerns regarding the scope of the projects, the FiT programme has succeeded in encouraging a range of new projects, particularly in terms of wind power.

Typhoon Haiyan, which struck in November 2013 had a devastating impact on parts of the Philippines, with Eastern Visayas and the island of Leyte suffering particularly extensive damage. Recovery efforts, estimated as costing USD2.35bn, are ongoing, including repairs to power infrastructure such as the national transmission grid. The repair works delayed many projects, but we are now beginning to see some progress. Wind and solar power are generally the focus of new projects as geothermal energy in the Philippines is already very well developed. There is also considerable scope for development of biothermal energy.

Key developments and forecasts include:

  • Maxpower International's 50MW wind power project in Pulupandan municipality, Negros Occidental is likely to be completed in late 2015. The wind farm, which is 50% complete, is scheduled to be tested and commissioned in November 2015.
