Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The Green Energy Rating Program (Green E) was designed to rate and recognize outstanding renewable energy projects implemented in the country based on objective environmental criteria. It served as a mechanism to award and provide incentives to project developers and end-users that gave significant and active participation in successful RE projects. Green-E was among the promotional programs that were developed under the Philippine Capacity Building to Remove Barriers to Renewable Energy Development (CBRED) Project.

IIEC idesigned the whole program and  conducted a pilot test of the design by end of 2004. The design included  (1) the development of the criteria, rating scheme, operating guidelines, monitoring and evaluation protocols, (2) assistance in the identification and training of the members of the Verification Committee, (3) financial plan and (4) program promotions strategy

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The Green IPP concept promoted by IIEC consisted of a package of multiple renewable energy and energy efficiency resources whose combined load characteristics would match the electric utility baseload requirements and provide the economically and environmentally lowest cost solution.

During the first year of the grant, IIEC engaged in networking, collaborative and promotional activities with several local and regional organizations. It was  during this period that the site of the pilot study, the Province of Negros Occidental in the Philippines, was selected. During the second year,  IIEC and its local partners undertook resource assessments, social preparations and pre-feasibility studies of the major components of the Green IPP project.  IIEC conducted the pre-feasibility studies of the two main project components namely: sugarcane bagasse-fired cogeneration and energy efficient lighting program for the local electric utility.

Services Provides:

  • Renewable energy resource assessment
  • Feasibility study on bagasse cogeneration in 3 sugar mills
  • DSM Assessment in three distribution utilities in Negros Occidental

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

This project is designs and pilot-tests a business model for aggregation that will provide opportunities for distributed renewable generators (e.g. wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal) in the Negros region in the Philippines to integrate and create a hybrid system to overcome each other’s seasonality and intermittency and match the base load requirements of electric utilities. The business model for power aggregation is designed in the context of the recent policy and business environment that governs the electricity market in the Philippines. It is particularly developed in view of engaging the distributed renewable generators to actively participate in the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market as a trading participant. Therefore, several consultations and workshop involving the distributed renewable and non-renewable generators, the National Transmission Company, the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market, and the electric utilities in the Negros region serve an integral part of the project.

 

Services Provided:

- Resource assessment
- Policy review of the electric power industry
- Business planning and strategy formulation
- Consultations and workshop with the power industry stakeholders, renewable and non renewable distributed generators

Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The objective of the project is to conduct a pre-feasibility study that determines the availability of biomass materials and assess their energy potential for use as fuel to a proposed biomass power plant in Panukulan, Polillio Island, Quezon Province. Currently, the energy supply in the island is limited and the biomass power plant is seen to fill in the gaps.

Premised on an overarching goal of poverty alleviation, the project includes an assessment of downstream livelihood applications of biomass energy in the agricultural and fishing sector. Examples of livelihood applications identified are rice mill, mini coconut oil mill, and ice making and cold storage facilities.

Services Provided:

- Biomass resource assessment
- Demand and supply studies
- Biomass energy engineering studies
- Enterprise Development and Business Planning
- Life-cycle cost analysis
