The Luzon region in the Philippines has expanded its operational solar power capacity by 63 MW with Modern Energy Management (MEM) bringing it online for AC Energy. Having completed its part of the job of providing engineering, design review and construction quality management services as owners engineer, MEM said the project started exporting power to the grid on April 25, 2021. It worked on the same with its local partner SIDCORE Consulting.
The 63 MW GigaSol Solar Power Project had been under construction since 2020 and is part of Ayala Corporation entity AC Energy’s 5 GW renewable energy target to be achieved by 2025 in various Southeast Asian nations, out of which it will have almost half of the capacity coming up in the Philippines (see AC Energy To Build 150 MW Solar Capacity In Philippines).
On its website, AC Energy states it has 1.2 GW of attributable capacity in the Philippines and is expected to increase with the completion of the infusion of AC Energy International that has 1.4 GW attributable capacity.
MEM said it is working with AC Energy on multiple solar projects across Southeast Asia with over 250 MW capacity.
Philippines’ solar market is catching investors eyes as of late several big projects and partnerships have been announced for the market. One of these was announced in June 2021 by Blueleaf Energy when it entered a 1.25 GW partnership to co-develop with local developer SunAsia in the country (see 1.25 GW Solar PV Partnership For Philippines).
