Opportunities in Renewable Energy

Slowly but surely, I am going back to being a working mom.

The first project I worked on is something that is very close to my heart because it means helping mother nature. I am talking about opportunities for renewable or alternative energy.

And here's an invite for all of you who are in the Philippines and in Thailand:

The Philippines in 2008 became the first Asean country to enact a milestone renewable energy law, which mandated both renewable portfolio standards and feed-in tariffs for wind, solar, biomass, small hydro, and ocean power. The RENEWABLES GLOBAL STATUS REPORT cited the Philippines as one of only 46 countries with such law in 2009.

Just last month, February, the Department of Energy (DOE) awarded 112 service contracts for the development of renewable energy sources, with investments expected to reach as much as P66.8 billion. The 112 service contracts are expected to generate a combined 2,264.1 megawatts (MW) in additional capacities. The latest contract signing brought to 206 the number of service contracts that have been awarded by the DOE since 2009.

To keep the momentum going, private companies will need to sustain the continuous inflow of technology and investments in the renewable energy sector. It would really help if we can also learn and tap into the strengths of other Asean countries. Philippines is number one in geothermal, but Thailand is the biggest producer of ethanol in Asean, Indonesia the leader in hydropower and so on.

All of these: technology sourcing, finding of potential investment partners, sharing of experience and exploration of business opportunities in the whole of Asean will be presented at a seminar on “Opportunities in Renewable Energy.” The presentation is a preview of the full exhibition Renewable Energy Asia, set for 2-5 June 2010, in Bangkok, Thailand.

We wish to invite you and your organisation to this presentation to be held on 27 April 2010, 3-6 pm, Makati Shangri-la Hotel.

The seats are limited so please confirm your attendance per email ( or call/text 0915-3305977.
This is for a greener future!
