Chris recently had the pleasure of attending The Future Energy Show in Manila in early September, moderating the opening keynote panel discussion around achieving energy autonomy and renewables adoption in the Philippines. The discussion with industry leaders from the private and public sector touched on developments and opportunities in the grid-scale and behind-the-meter renewables space, and explored the role of policy and regulation in supporting growth, among other areas.
Chris also gave a presentation entitled “Solar PPAs: Where are we?” – covering the evolution of the Philippines’ solar market and key trends being seen in project commercialisation across the various routes-to-market (CSP, retail, WESM and green auctions), as well as touching upon key contracting risks and paths for mitigation.
Please reach out to Chris if you are interested in discussing the Philippines market further, and/or wish to receive a copy of his presentation.
