AES Philippines Power Partners Co. Ltd. Plans to build energy storage facilities across the country which will store up to 250MW of power. They are currently still studying potential locations for the storage facilities, and are currently looking at locations across Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
AES had another project of a 40 MW battery storage project in Kabankalan that was supposed to have been ready by March this year but is still awaiting the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines to provide guidance on the ancillary service procurement agreement.
According to Neeraj Bhat, AES Philippines managing director, the most important factor for their energy storage project to be put into reality requires help from government regulators to push it forward, as well as corporation from the grid operators.
