"Embracing the energy transition towards renewables in the Philippines is not only a necessity but also a significant opportunity to secure a sustainable future. While the shift towards renewables presents its own set of challenges, it is vital that we take bold steps towards reducing our carbon footprint and preserving the environment for generations to come. With this seminar we aim to provide participants with valuable insights, knowledge and how together, we can turn the challenges of the energy transition into opportunities for growth, innovation, and positive change." said Karan Singh, SMA Director of Sales for India, South East Asia and South Korea.
The seminar, scheduled for March 31, 2023, will bring together industry experts and professionals from various sectors, specifically linking renewable energy, power electronics and smart grid technology to discuss the optimisation of inverters in a wide range of applications. These include microgrids, hybrid systems, grid-forming BESS for power system stability, and intelligent energy management systems.
The “Philippines Energy Leaders' Seminar” will also bring together key local authorities and industry representatives to discuss and shape the country's energy transition for a climate-friendly, sustainable future. Such as the Ministry of Energy's current plans to introduce electric vehicle charging stations - powered by renewable energy. [Shell, DOE firm team for RE-powered EV chargers | Power Philippines]
The seminar is thus in line with the country's targets under the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP), under which the Philippines aims to increase its share of renewable energy in electricity generation to 35% by 2030 and 50% by 2040. The DOE plans to publish a new Energy Roadmap to 2050. [DOE to release new energy roadmap this year | Power Philippines]
