RENEWABLE ENERGY FORUM. China Power Engineering Consulting Group Co., Ltd. (CPECC) general manager Cheng Jiping delivers a speech during the Philippine Renewable Energy Forum 2023 in Manila on Sept. 26, 2023. In his speech, Cheng said the Philippines has a massive potential in renewable energy.

“The Philippines is rich in wind and solar energy resources, the massive potential of which is to be unlocked,” Chen said.

The forum focused on advances in frontier technologies of the renewable energy sector, such as floating photovoltaic (FPV), energy storage technology, and smart microgrids.

It also addressed major concerns and challenges renewable energy faces in the Philippines, including the application of FPV technology in marine environments, the application of offshore microgrid technology, and insurance solutions against extreme weather events.

China-Philippine cooperation in clean energy has become an important part of the bilateral ties of both countries.

CPECC, by actively leveraging its strengths as an industry leader in renewable energy construction, has provided Philippine companies with integrated solutions for investment and development of clean energy power projects.

Being dedicated to advancing international production capacity cooperation, CPECC has been a part of the working towards a low-carbon energy transition in the Philippines, the Chinese company said in a news release on Wednesday.

Over the past 10 years, under the “Belt and Road” initiative, CPECC has worked together with its Philippine partners and completed more than 30 design, consulting, and EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) projects in the Philippines, which delivered tangible benefits to the locals, it added.

In the future, Energy China hopes to initiate cooperation to create a community of shared future for mankind.
