Energy storage facilities planed across the Philippines

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.

Evaluating The Economics Of Gas Storage For The Grid

Power-to-gas is the method of turning electricity into hydrogen gas using electrolysis. The resulting hydrogen can then be used as vehicle fuel, combined with carbon dioxide to make methane (a natural gas replacement), or injected into natural gas infrastructure as hydrogen in low concentrations. If made from surplus renewable electricity, the generated hydrogen is low-carbon…
