Korea Energy Agency starts to develop new renewable distributed energy generation systems based on photovoltaic power generators in the Philippines.
Last August 20, the energy corporation announced that it has recently signed a joined contract with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the National Electrification Administration (NEA) of the Philippines to develop new renewable distributed generators.
The distributed generation system produces the energy with the use of sunlight and wind, and stores the electricity in small-scale facilities such as in-house power generating stations. This is in sharp contrast to large-scale power plants like nuclear and thermal power plants.
Under the agreement, a 30kW solar power plant, a 175kW lithium battery and a 25kW power conversion system (PCS) will be installed in Cobrador Island of the Philippines next month. Along with an existing 15kW diesel generator, the distributed generation system will be established.
Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) is in-charge of managing the overall project, from installing the new renewable energy control system to designing the project, construction and training.
