Key R&D Institutions involved in the Development and Transfer of Renewable Energy Technologies


The Philippine Energy Plan for RE in 2012 to 2030

Energy, which is a valuable commodity, has a direct impact on the economic growth of the country like the Philippines. The Philippine Department of Energy (DOE), recognizing the long development duration of energy projects and investment, has formulated the 2012 to 2030 Philippine Energy Plan (PEP) to be launched in December 2012 in time for the annual celebration of the National Energy Consciousness Month (NECM).

The Energy Plan highlights the policy and vision of an economy which will become largely decarbonized with the development and utilization of renewable energy – biomass, geothermal, solar, ocean and wind energy (or what is called the BiGSHOW as an acronym) with the DOE taking the lead in the promotion of energy efficiency as a lifestyle and advocating the use of alternative fuels for the transport section apart from the utilization of RE technologies.

The DOE has also simulated the energy needs of the country over the next 20 years by considering factors such as a 10.0% target energy savings across all economic sectors and increase in the number of buses fueled by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and possible introduction of CNG taxis, electric vehicles and higher application of biofuel blends (biodiesel and bioethanol). To further curb the country’s energy demand, the PEP also seeks to scale-up energy efficiency investments in both the private and public sectors to generate more energy savings as well as envisioning the acceleration of the development and production of indigenous fossil fuels.

The low-carbon programs that have been outlined will support the government’s climate change mitigation strategies thus helping the country achieve its targeted progress in meeting its greenhouse gas emission reduction goals as the country aims to climate- proof the energy system to help ensure they continue to provide energy services under the impacts of climate change.


Renewable Energy Sector Accomplishments in 2010 to 2011

The following are the highlights of the resource basis:

accomplishments of the RE sector on a per

Geothermal Energy

A milestone in geothermal energy was achieved in February and March 2010 with the signing of new Geothermal Renewable Energy Service Contracts (GRESCs) under the Open and Competitive Selection Process (OCSP), four (4) GRESCs under direct negotiations for frontier areas and conversion of two (2) Geothermal Service Contracts into GRESCs under RA 9513 were signed. The signed service contracts, located in the areas of Benguet, Mountain Province, Palawan, Laguna,Oriental Mindoro, Bataan, Camarines, Surigao del Norte, and Sorsogon, will contribute a total of an additional 606 MW potential capacity to the country’s electricity supply.

As of 2011, the country has 21 GRESCs and 2 Geothermal Service Contracts (GSCs) under PD 1442, seven (7) of which are producing fields with a total installed capacity of 1,896MW while the remaining are under pre-development/exploration stage. Among the major islands of the country, the Visayas has the highest installed capacity with 914MW. Luzon has 879MW while Mindanao has 103MW.

The country remains as a major producer of geothermal energy resource, next only to the United States of America. In 2010, gross electricity generation from geothermal energy was recorded at 9,929GWh which provided a14.7% share to the country’s total electricity generation mix. In 2011, despite the commissioning of the 49.37MW Northern Negros Geothermal Power Plant in June and the on-going rehabilitation of the Bacman Geothermal Power Plants, gross electricity generated from geothermal energy during the third quarter already stood at 7,933GWh and is expected to further increase to 12,956GWh at the end of 2011.

The DOE has also approved the “Confirmation of Commerciality” in November 2011 of the 20MW Maibarara Integrated Geothermal Streamfield and Power Plant Project in

Sto. Thomas, Batangas of Service Contractor, Maibarara Geothermal, Inc. The confirmation declaring that the RE project is commercially feasible and viable serves as the basis for the project to convert from pre-development/exploration stage to development and commercial stage. The project is expected to be commissioned in


Hydroelectric Power

As of September 2011, the total installed and dependable capacity from hydropower stood at 3,535MW and 3,257MW, respectively. During the third quarter of 2011, the total energy generation from hydro was placed at 6,695GWh, equivalent to a 13.2% share to the total preliminary generation mix. Such contribution excludes off-grid and embedded generation but includes uprating or rehabilitation works on some hydropower plants such as the San Roque and Buhi-Barit Hydro Plants. Upon the turnover of these plants to their Generating Company (GenCo) successors, contract rating of the 345MW San Roque and the 1.8MW Buhi-Barit Hydro Plants were adjusted to their nameplate ratings of 411MW and 2MW, respectively. The said adjustments increased the total capacity of hydro by 66.2MW. The rehabilitation works on the Ambuklao, Magat and Binga HEPPs with total increase in nameplate ratings of 215MW also contributed to the increase in hydropower generation. Hydropower technology likewise contributed to the Barangay Electrification Project (BEP) of the DOE. The project which promotes the use of sustainable and least-cost decentralized electrification solutions using RE, installed and rehabilitated the following micro-hydro projects: 35kW for Sitio Dimotol, Maria Aurora, Aurora; 7kW for Barangay Bagong Barrio, Makato, Aklan; and 35kW for Caninihan, Janiuay, Iloilo.

Under the JICA-assisted project entitled “Hydropower Resource Inventory in the Philippines”, 50 new hydro potential sites have been identified. As of 2011, there are 125 Hydropower Service Contracts (HSCs) issued and awarded with a total estimated capacity of 1,252.5MW. There are still HSC applications at different stages of evaluation that will still be issued and awarded.

Biomass Energy

The use of biomass for power generation resulted in a total installed capacity of 54MW and dependable capacity of 30MW. Likewise, the total generation from biomass as of the third quarter of 2011 was recorded at 47.2GWh. Biomass registration certificates were issued and awarded by the DOE for commercial at 75MW and own-use at 212MW operations.

Solar Power

As of the third quarter of 2011, solar power contributed 0.9GWh to the gross generation mix with the grid-connected 1MW CEPALCO Photovoltaic Power Project as a major source of solar power generation in the country. The country’s prospects on the use of solar energy remain high as evidenced by the seven (7) solar power contracts recently issued by the DOE. Potential solar resources in the country which could be developed within the next 20 years, are found to have a total potential capacity of 284.1MW.

Wind Energy

Gross generation from wind energy as of the third quarter of 2011 was registered at 44.3GWh. The country’s wind power generation is primarily sourced from the 33MW Wind Farm of Northwind Power Development Corporation located in Bangui, Ilocos Norte. As of 2011, a total of 52 Wind Service Contracts have been issued by the DOE with a total indicative resource potential of 2,345MW.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

The country has three (3) Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) pre-development contracts covering 36 potential areas with resource potential of about 70.5MW.

The National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) of the Renewable Energy Management Bureau under the Department of Energy (REMB-DOE)

The development and optimal use of the country's renewable energy resources is central to the Philippine's sustainable energy agenda. Renewable energy is an essential part of the country's low emissions development strategy and is vital to addressing the challenges of climate change, energy security, and access to energy.

The National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) outlines the policy framework enshrined in Republic Act 9513. It sets the strategic building blocks that will help the country achieve the goals set forth in the Renewable Energy Act of 2008. The NREP signals the country's big leap from fragmented and halting RE initiatives into a focused and sustained drive towards energy security and improved access to clean energy.

The NREP sets out indicative interim targets for the delivery of renewable energy within the timeframe of 2011 to 2030. Meeting the massive targets up to 2020 will be challenging as detailed planning, financing, and building of renewable energy infrastructure will have to be undertaken at a scale, and within a time frame, never done before.

The NREP lays down the foundation for developing the country's renewable energy resources, stimulating investments in the RE sector, developing technologies, and providing the impetus for national and local renewable energy planning that will help identify the most feasible and least-cost renewable energy development options.

The NREP proceeds from the assumption that certain activities can be taken right away; while others will take time to implement. As a national program, it will require periodic review to ensure it conforms to the policy objectives set out in RA 9513.

Beyond the scale, however, are fundamental issues of transmission and grid integration for intermittent RE resources. Social and economic impacts cannot be overlooked. These are issues that will be kept under close review. Action shall be taken toward meeting the challenges of balancing the country's energy security needs and the over- riding goal of providing clean, affordable, and sustainable energy for all.

The NREP promises a continuing and well-coordinated effort to drive development in the RE industry, promote technology advancements, and achieve economies of scale. It provides the basis for national and local renewable energy planning that will identify specific actions and times upon which outcomes will be generated. Such plans will factor in cross-cutting issues and essential interventions in the areas of transmission development and integration, energy efficiency, off-grid electrification, climate change, technology transfer and development, local capacity building, and partnerships.

Given the dynamic nature of the country's energy sector, the NREP is a living document. Forecasts and targets will be updated periodically as key developments in the energy sector emerge. Programs will be reviewed. Deployment of RE projects will be monitored to ensure that stakeholders make good on their promise to deliver. Above all, partnerships will be enhanced to ensure a country-wide approach in developing the country's renewable energy resources.

Among its RE-related trainings being offered is on charcoal briquetting from waste biomass materials.

The Forest Products Research and Development Institute

The Forest Products Research and Development Institute under the Department of Science and Technology (FPRDI-DOST) is mandated to conduct research and development (R & D) on wood and non-wood forest products; transfer technologies and provide technical services and training

Among its R & D programs is that on Bio-energy, Resins and Oils lead by Ms. Mildred M. Fidel which will continue to align its undertakings with the DOST’s Seven Point Agenda (SePA) together with the FPRDI’s Medium-Term Plan (MTP) and Investment Portfolio.

The program will generate improved technologies and information to process and utilize natural products as alternative materials for the energy, health, chemical and paper industries. Additional R&D outputs under the program will be on equipment improvement for the charcoal briquetting. The program will implement 8 regular funded projects. Of these, 4 are continuing and the other 4 are newly-implemented.

Among its specific objectives on Bio-Energy is the development of a mobile screw-type mixer for charcoal briquettes; and improve the existing FPRDI carbonizer and the multi- sized tube-type charcoal briquettors or briquetting machines.

Technologies which have been developed by the institute include charcoal briquetting from forest products, small-scale biomass pyrolzyer for farm irrigation and biomass-fired kilns and dryers.

Trainings conducted by the FPRDI related to RE include charcoal production and charcoal briquetting from Biomass materials.

University of the Philippines Solar Laboratory

The UP Solar Laboratory traces its origin to the second phase of the Philippine-German SEP in 1988 as a testing facility for the evaluation of available solar photovoltaic and thermal systems.

Since its inception, the UP Solar Laboratory has continually developed its expertise in many fields of renewable energy, advocates sustainable development and the judicious use of energy resources through the implementation of its projects and programs.

Under the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute, the laboratory focuses on Solar Photovoltaic System applications in its area for research and development.

Under its academic program is a multi-disciplinary, Energy Program under the College of Engineering implements academic courses in renewable energy at the graduate level. The Solar Laboratory supports courses in PV technology, applications, and design.

Under the university extension program for community service, CWTS (Civic Welfare Training Service), the laboratory has demonstration units for solar street lighting in the hills of Antipolo. Students taking the CWTS course get to have first-hand experience setting up the demo units.

Likewise, collaborative efforts with NGOs (non-governmental organizations) take the form of mini implementation projects. The laboratory also participates in UNDP-CBRED Database project.

The Congressional Commission on Science & Technology and Engineering

On top of its main advocacies, COMSTE remains committed to furthering other initiatives in enhancing the competitiveness of the Philippines through Science and Technology (S&T).

Renewable Energy

In 2008, COMSTE Chair Senator Edgardo J. Angara sponsored the Renewable Energy (RE) Act of 2008 (RA 9513), alongside 13 other senators. The measure was lauded as one of the most comprehensive and forward-looking pieces of RE legislation in the world. A full-fledged RE industry was said to have grown on the foundations of the RE act. However, longstanding delays in the full implementation of the act have however dampened the projected boom of the burgeoning industry.

COMSTE remains a staunch supporter of the transition to local, renewable energy sources as a solution to the country’s incessant energy problems and heightened vulnerability to price fluctuations in imported fossil fuels.

The commission understands that the switch to renewables will entail significant investments and extensive technology transfer, which sometimes come at high costs. Along these lines, COMSTE has pushed for the establishment of a Renewable Energy Research and Development Institute (RERDI).

As another solution, COMSTE also advocates for the country to become a prime location for RE developers to test and fine-tune their technologies. COMSTE seeks partnerships with RE companies and foreign governments who wish to leverage on the country’s abundant renewable energy resources and conduct mutually-beneficial R&D.

Solar Photovoltaic Testing

With more solar flux than many other European countries, the Philippines is also a good location for R&D in better, more efficient Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels. As part of its initiatives in the RERDI, COMSTE has already established ties with industry partners such as First Philec in Batangas and CEPALCO in Cagayan de Oro for Photovoltaic Testing.

Renewable Energy R&D Institute (RERDI)

The Renewable Energy Research and Development Institute (RERDI) is envisioned to be the hub for multi-stakeholders projects in developing and adapting renewable energy systems for the country. The institute would also act as a clearinghouse for RE developers to showcase their technologies.

With 13 other senators, COMSTE Chair Sen. Edgardo J. Angara sponsored the Renewable Energy Act of 2008 (RA 9513)—hailed as one of the most forward-looking and comprehensive policies for the promotion and development of renewable energy sources.

To boost the country’s capacity to quickly adapt and localize cutting-edge renewable energy technologies, COMSTE’s Energy and Environment panel recommended the establishment of the Renewable Energy Research and Development Institute or RERDI. The RERDI was envisioned to be the hub for consortium-based R&D and technology transfer projects in energy systems. The Institute was also seen as a clearinghouse for RE developers, where demonstrations can be made on new approaches to power metering, energy conservation with greater situational awareness, and automatic power switching for energy conservation.

COMSTE identified priority areas under which projects in RERDI would be undertaken. These include:

Renewable Energy Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems

Wind Power

Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems

Alternative Fuels from solid residue

Biodiesel Production Development

Gasohol-related Process Development

Material Development for Energy Applications

Academic Institutions Offering Capacity Building Programs in the Field of Renewable Energy

The Department of Energy previously monitors RE consumption by the commercial and industrial sectors through a regular inventory conducted by their 21 Affiliated Non- Conventional Energy Centers (or ANECs). The data collected are then used as basis for determining future demand of these sectors.

DOE has recently decided to revive its partnership with academe (or academic institutions) in monitoring renewable-energy projects in the country due to limited resources and personnel. They have entered into agreements with academe in setting up these centers now called affiliated renewable-energy centers (or ARECs).

The department is still looking for universities all over the Philippines to help monitor renewable-energy projects, for research and development purposes, and to identify potential sites for renewable energy and available renewable-energy resources in their respective jurisdictions.

The DOE recently held a workshop and invited the existing 21 ARECs in the country. The selection of an AREC is based on their willingness to participate and assist the DOE, and to provide funding. With the feed-in tariff issued by the Energy Regulatory Commission, more academic institutions have become interested to become an AREC. ARECs can also be recipients of the renewable-energy trust fund which they can use to finance research and development in this field.

Under the contracts, ARECs provide the DOE with a monthly report on where the funds are used since these funds are audited by the energy department.

Non-Governmental Organizations in the Renewable Energy Sector

Center for Clean and Renewable Energy Development

The Center for Clean and Renewable Energy Development (C-CRED) is a non-profit organization that promotes the development and utilization of clean and renewable energy resources in the country. It seeks to provide a platform for interaction among RE stakeholders with the view to addressing issues that impede the development of clean and renewable energy resources in the country. C-CRED catalyzes cross-sectoral partnerships toward harnessing clean and renewable energy as energy of choice in unserved/marginalized areas of the country

Its objectives are:

To promote and uphold the shared interests of renewable energy sector toward advancing RE development goal; To provide a knowledge center dedicated to research on renewable energy, particularly on policies and programs instituted;

To strengthen the network of renewable energy stakeholders and to provide them with a strong voice for advocacy; and

To provide a forum

that will

help advance the cause of corporate social

responsibility in the RE sector.

C-CRED also provides a platform for renewable energy players to engage with each other, with the government, with international agencies, and with other key stakeholders. The work for renewable energy players does not stop with the passage of the Renewable Energy Act and its accompanying IRR. Advocacy and constant dialogue are needed to ensure that the targets enshrined in the law are met and that subsequent directives are consistent with the objectives and the intentions of the law.

The University of the Philippines – National Engineering Center

The National Engineering Center (NEC) was established on January 27, 1978 as a distinct and separate unit of the University of the Philippines (UP) by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 1295. The creation was a response to the country’s continuing efforts at national development, which require progressive and adequate utilization and diffusion of technology, as well as a steady and expanding supply of technical manpower with expertise in the various fields of technology and engineering. The NEC was envisioned to provide a venue for continuing interaction among government, industry, and the university which will be beneficial to all concerned and, at the same time, serve the interests of national development.

The NEC, established in 1978 through PD 1295, is a distinct and separate unit under the University of the Philippines (UP) mandated to provide experts to whom public and private entities may turn for assistance in the solution of engineering problems and to develop technologies that utilize local resources that are adapted to the needs of a developing country.

The Philippine National Oil Company – Energy Development Corporation

Energy Development Corporation is a pioneer in the geothermal energy industry with more than three decades of proven business viability. It has helped discover new ways of developing and commercializing renewable energy right at the heart of the resource – wherever the location and whatever the condition.

From exploration and production of water-based steam power to generation of electricity for commercial use, we build some of the world’s pioneering and most complex steam fields banking on our highly skilled manpower and homegrown technology that are fast becoming benchmarks in the industry. EDC has more than 1,400 megawatts under its green power portfolio diversified by the acquisition of a hydropower project and wind power projects in the pipeline.

The EDC adds value at every stage of their operation – from geoscientific assessment to environmental compliance and from power plant operation to social acceptability. Their advocacy is to help meet the growing demand for energy delivered by low carbon power options. Their geothermal projects are now qualified in the clean development mechanism purchased in Europe for its low CO2 emissions. EDC aims to strengthen its position as the market leader by developing new greenfield and power generation projects.

Their services includes the following:

Exploration and assessment of geothermal fields

Field development

Resource management

Analytical services

Technology development Training

They also have well-equipped Chemistry Laboratories located in Fort Bonifacio head office and project sites in Albay, Leyte, Negros Oriental, Negros Occidental and North Cotabato.

Chapter 7.

Financial Institutions for Supporting Renewable Energy Technology

Development, Commercialization, Transfer and Adoption

Renewable Energy together with Energy Efficiency projects provide financial and operational benefits for the investor and environmental benefits for the society. Typically, the projects are characterized by high investment cost and low running cost. Therefore, the interest rate plays a significant role for investment decisions.

RE promotion gains attention from few well known symbols such as hydro and geothermal power stations, collectors for solar heat and PV electricity generation, windmills that can be seen from a distance, huge fields for biofuel production.

Multi-Lateral and Bilateral Financial Institutions (Official Development Assistance)

Multilateral and bilateral loan facilities are granted to Governments and administered by Financial Institutions. FIs will offer these facilities to wholesale and retail borrowers in accordance with the stipulations in special agreements with the lender (two step loan). The tenors of these loans to banks are regularly longer than those of the individual subloan agreements. The recipient bank could use the loan repayments for revolving the funds to further applicants for the same purpose (second generation loans). The FIs do not publish whether the facility is already closed or repayments are available for financing additional projects (revolving). Once the funds were disbursed and the loan closed, the providers of finance or donors seem to be not particularly interested in whether or not loan repayments are revolved for the same purpose.

Details are seldom published on whether and how funds are directly accessible for SMEs and the financing conditions. SMEs might benefit from subcontracts but even when they obtain advance payments or easier access to loans based on a contract with an LGU about an investment.

Clean Energy Program and Carbon Market Program

Asian Development Bank ADB Headquarters Manila 6 ADB Avenue, Mandaluyong City 1550, Philippines Tel. No.: (632) 632-4444 Fax No.: (632) 636-2444 Websites:

ADB has setup a new fund which will provide financing for green projects in the Asia Pacific region that can generate carbon credits beyond 2012. The initial fund size is 100 million USD and could be increased to 200 million USD if the demand calls for it. ADB is concerned that since the Kyoto Protocol’s first commitment period expires on 31 December 2012, this could hamper the trading in post 2012 carbon credits. In turn this will affect the interest in developing new clean energy projects and other climate change initiatives in developing countries. With the lack of long term price incentives for reducing GHG emissions, investment trends in green projects could return to normal levels. But with this fund in place, ADB hopes to stimulate new investments in clean energy projects even before a new international agreement is reached. The Future Carbon Fund also goes with ADB’s Carbon Market Initiative (CMI), which provides project cofinancing facility, carbon credit marketing program, and technical support for project preparation and implementation of CDM eligible projects and their developers.

Seed Capital Assistance Facility (SCAF)

Eric Usher ( Jane Brett (

SCAF for venture capital was funded from the Global Environment Facility with 9.8 million USD in 2008.56 The SCAF, a climate finance option is a grant based TA jointly implemented by ADB and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). ADB announced in June 2011 its plan to provide from SCAF one million USD each to two clean energy - focused private equity fund managers, one with the Philippines as co domicile. 57 SMEs would have to address these - presently not yet known - fund managers once they have been selected.

Sustainable Energy Finance (SEF) Program*

International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group) Contact:

Art Cariaga ( (632) 848-7333

The IFC, the private arm of World Bank, is a direct investor and supports the Sustainable Energy Finance (SEF) program of Bank of Philippines Islands (BPI) since 2009.63 In 2010, IFC and Banco de Oro Unibank, Inc (BDO), the country’s largest bank, commenced their SEF cooperation. The project entails a risk sharing facility (“the Facility”) of up to 44 million USD.

In 2011, Metrobank joined. Furthermore, IFC invested in Plantersbank and supports the ECCP’s Energy Smart Program. IFC with support from the Global Environment

Facility (GEF)64 works hand-in-hand with banks to enable businesses to finance their EE and RE projects. IFC’s technical experts, a TA component, determine possible energy projects that can help lessen electricity costs, improve production and operational efficiency, increase company profitability and reduce GHG emissions.

Whereas the SEF and support in ECCP’s Smart program addresses also SMEs, IFC engages also in large RE financing with a 4.1 billion PHP loan (almost 100 million USD) for the Energy Development Corporation (the privatized PNOC EDC) to fund investments in the geothermal sector.

Loan Programs of Universal Banks

Sustainable Energy Finance (SEF) Program with the IFC:

Bank of the Philippine Islands




BPI is a bank with a dedicated GF hallmark which is the Sustainable Energy Finance (SEF) Program. BPI promotes SEF with a special brochure asking customers to Invest in Energy Efficiency, to Cut Power Costs, and to Explore New Technologies, Be Environment-Friendly.

The SEF Program provides financing to invest in technologies aimed at improving the efficiency of energy generation, energy distribution and energy use. Sustainable energy projects include EE modifications and RE technologies.

BPI projects that such technologies can reduce operating and energy expenses by at least 20 percent, “savings that go straight to your company’s bottom line.” “This is also an opportunity to lessen carbon emissions, which greatly contribute to the worldwide issue of global warming.”

BPI has set up the SEF program with IFC support and advertises investing in EE as commercially viable: Turning your Business GREEN to GOLD. The bank offers its clientele technical expertise, advice, and data for the loan proposal (these are cost savings for applicants / entrepreneurs) and linking with technology vendors, suppliers and consultants.

Product essentials include

  • - working capital financing for purchasing of raw materials and consumables such as light bulbs, cooling refrigerants and other short term financing needs.

  • - capital expenditure financing for financing fixed asset acquisition: new plant or building construction, for expansion or modernization, acquisition of machinery and equipment such as cooling systems.

  • - leasing as a method of paying for the use of an asset over a specified period of time, an alternative mode of financing an asset compared to outright purchase or borrowing. Any type of asset can be leased as long as it is durable, identifiable, insurable and has a good secondary market and reliable after sales support. Industrial machineries such as generators, compressors air conditioners and manufacturing equipment can also be leased through the SEF Program.

IFC guarantees 50 percent of the loan with a maximum amount of 150 million PHP. The details of the guarantee have not been explored. For RE and EE projects, the average loan amount exceeds 100 million PHP. Clients have to submit various contracts, permits, and licenses, including ECCs.

Country-side Loan Fund

Land Bank of the Philippines Website:

The World Bank finances LBP’s Countryside Loan Fund (CLF), a wholesale credit facility. It is made available through LBP to participating (accredited) financial institutions (open to all banks) for relending to eligible subborrowers, like sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations (at least 70 percent Filipino owned), cooperatives / associations.

LBP mentions explicitly environmental protection projects (like wastewater treatment facility, biogas, etc) as eligible under the Credit Support for the Environment, Agribusiness, Small and Medium Enterprises Program (CREAM). Also, tourism related projects can obtain finance under this scheme.

Capacity Building to Remove Barriers to Renewable Energy Development – Project Preparation Fund (CBRED-PPF) Land Bank of the Philippines

Renewable Energy for Wiser and Accelerated Resources Development (REWARD) Program, Land Bank of the Philippines

To help in further promoting the development of alternative fuel and energy sources, LBP has opened a loan facility called Renewable Energy for Wiser and Accelerated Resources Development or REWARD. It may be availed of by entrepreneurs (whether sole proprietor,partnership or corporation), cooperatives, LGUs and NGOs to help them undertake project feasibility studies or provide working capital and fixed asset investment for RE projects.

Eligible projects for financing include biofuel, biomass, hydropower, wind projects, geothermal, solar photovoltaic, solar water heaters and cogeneration projects.

Of the total approved loans, RE sources such as geothermal, hydro power and biomass received 3.7 billion PHP (about 90 million USD) while much smaller biofuels projects accounted for 226.2 million PHP (5.4 million USD). Measured by its total portfolio, about 2 percent is invested in green environmental finance.

The Land Bank has LGU exclusive green financing facilities. However until 2010 no specific financing window for SMEs was established although existing financing programs for SMEs such as the Retail Countryside Fund (RCF) and the Countryside Loan Fund (CLF) can support investments in environmental initiatives. LBP makes it mandatory for borrowers / project proponents to prepare and submit IEE / ECC for projects submitted for RCF and CLF financing.

Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP)

DBP vigorously pursues its commitment to environmental protection and sustainable development. DBP is one of the first Philippine banks to integrate environmental considerations in all aspects of its operations. The bank has established an Environmental Management System (EMS) and obtained ISO 14001 EMS certification. DBP provides financing as well as technical assistance to projects that

pass environmental criteria (sound). The bank works hand-in-hand with key players from both the private and public sectors such as LGUs, national agencies, private corporations, multilateral and bilateral lending institutions, private banks, rural banks, cooperatives, among others. DBP plays also an active role in encouraging clients and their participating financial institutions under its wholesale lending program, to include environmental considerations in their businesses and thrusts. DBP’s commitment to environment is mirrored in the establishment of the Environment and Climate Change Unit Program Development. The bank employs specialists who are frequently (at least once annually) trained to handle environmental issues. DBP actively promotes investments in -clean technology -solid waste management -new and renewable energy -carbon investment banking -rural electrification / rural power -natural resources conservation -pollution abatement and control -water supply and watershed management.

The program for new and renewable energies is meant for larger enterprises but still within the reach of small and medium incorporated enterprises (approximately maximum loan for a medium enterprise is USD 1 million USD). The facility finances EE projects without any indication of a minimum loan amount. While it is intended also for private enterprises, there may be few takers among SMEs for this type of loan.

Priority projects include power generation (renewable and conventional energy), alternative fuels.

Eligible borrowers include private corporations (at least 70% Filipino-owned), local government units, electric cooperatives, private financial institutions and government- owned and controlled corporations.

The Rural Power Project (RPP) was approved by the World Bank in 2003 through the Global Environment Facility (GEF, 12 million USD grant fund). The project also aims to contribute towards the global objective of mitigating climate change caused

by GHG emissions through wider generation.

use of clean and RE technologies in power

The RPP targets were: financing access to electricity for 10 000 houses with 40 million USD or about 4000 USD (175 000 PHP) per house. The RPP promoted solar home systems (SHS) of about 20 – 50 watt peak capacity for individual households and 100 watt peak capacity or more for small business or communal use. The systems are distributed and serviced on commercial basis by “Accredited Participating PV Companies” and provided appropriate incentives by the project.

DBP differentiates between four project types. Those relevant for SMEs and cooperatives are Type A: For development and construction of small scale energy generation and mini-grid rural electrification projects thru conventional and RE resources. Type D: Any project which improves the reliability and efficiency of rural power supply and increase access to electricity services by unserved customers.

The interest rates fixed for up to 15 years are 9 percent per year for the initial five years and 10 percent per year afterwards.

The project was successful: World Bank approved additional finance (almost 50 million USD) in 2009. Today DBP offers financing for New and Renewable Energy Projects.

Government Institutions:

Local financing institutions with an environmentalist agenda are Municipal Development Fund Offices (MDFO) and LGU Guarantee Corporation (LGUGC). MDFO only provides loans to LGUs - not for private enterprises. LGUGC provides guarantees for LGU loans.
