Philippines Flag

The Philippines' Department of Energy has approved the construction of six hydropower projects following studies by its Renewable Energy Management Board (REMB).

The REMB determined that each of the projects is commercially viable, giving the go-ahead for plants that will add a combined installed capacity of about 48 MW to the Philippines' grid.

United States-based Hydrocore, Inc., will build the 4.5-MW Ibulao plant in Lagawe, while another American company, Constellation Energy Corp., is slated to construct the 3-MW Dupinga in Gabaldon.

Filipino company Oriental Energy and Power Generation will build the 18-MW Timbaban plant in Madalag and 10-MW Culaman project in Manolo, and Hedcor Tudaya will build the 7-MW Tudaya plant in Santa Cruz.

A Chinese/Filipino partnership called Century Peak Energy will construct the 5.1-MW Ibgulo in Igbaras.

REMB said there are currently 36 hydropower projects being evaluated by the Department of Energy.
