Grid network expansion may boost Philippines’ renewables: report

This is seen to open more opportunities for power project development.

More investments in the expansion of the Philippines’ grid network will lead to upside risks for the growth of its renewable energy as well as opportunities for power project development, Fitch Solutions reported. 

The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines had allocated some US$2.81b in capital expenditure for 2021-2025. Of this, US$1.96b will be for transmission projects in various stages of development.
