Renewables For Philippines: Accelerated Development And Energy Independence

A new report released by the IRENA, says that renewable energy policy making and institutional evolution can support Philippines’ development momentum and allow it to achieve energy independence. “Like many countries in its region, the Philippines faces a growing population and rising energy demand to power economic growth. Uniquely, the archipelago is also frequently exposed to tropical storms and natural disasters that affect its energy structure. Renewable energy can play a role in helping the country achieve greater energy security and distribution despite these challenges,” said IRENA Director-General Adnan Z. Amin.

Morocco Rises: Starts Construction On The World’s Largest Solar Power Complex

In the presence of the Moroccan King, Mohammed VI, construction commenced on the country’s fourth power plant – NOORo IV – which will become the largest solar power complex in the world, providing electricity for 1.3 million people. After commissioning, at the beginning of 2018, the PV plant will enable annual savings of at least 56,000 tonnes in CO2 emissions. When all four power plants are combined, CO2 emissions will be reduced by around 800,000 tonnes every year. The Noor complex is scheduled to be completed by 2019 and supply a total of 580 MW of output power from three solar thermal energy plants and one photovoltaic plant.
