Where to Get Assistance for Energy & Electricity Investment Opportunities in the Philippines

Marcial Ocampo provides a blog on issues and concerns regarding current and future fuel cycles and power generation technologies as they affect the environment, fuel supplies and power generation capacities, efficiency of utilization of fuel or energy resource, pollution & greenhouse gas emissions, and cost of power (overnight capital cost $/kW) and energy (levelized $/kWh).

He provides market, technical and economic feasibility studies and prepares project finance models for determining asset value (bid price), levelized price of energy or electricity, or equity returns (DCF IRR).

He is also familiar with investment opportunities in the Philippine energy and electricity sector (Philippine Energy Plan, Power Development Plan) and the regulatory framework (EPIRA and RE laws,  implementing rules and regulations, Distribution Code, Grid Code) for purchasing a power plant from PSALM/NPC or for putting up a new power plant (conventional, fossil or renewable).

He can guide you in securing incentives under the latest Philippine Renewable Energy (RE) law and its implementing rules and regulations (IRR).

In addition, he could guide you in securing the needed endorsement from the Philippine Department of Energy (DOE), permits and licenses from the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and other government agencies (DTI, SEC, BIR, DENR, EMB, NWRB, PNRI, DOLE, NTC, BOC, PPA, ATO, PDEA, BOI, NCIP and LGUs) in order that the facility is duly licensed to operate as a power generation facility with an electricity tariff that is the “best new entrant” for the given location and application in order to balance the need of the customers for affordable electricity and the need of the investor to meet its investment return criteria.

Should you need assistance in preparing a project finance model and a feasibility study (market, technical, economic, financial) using Philippine oil, energy and electricity data, please don’t hesitate to contact Marcial.

  5. Andrew H. Says:

    We don’t think it’s as easy as your everyday peel-and-stick adhesive bumper sticker, but just the same. It sounds like a major improvement from the tedious drilling and constructing that goes into the installation of ordinary solar panels. The Lumeta PowerPly solar panels are glued in place on the roof, using adhesives normally used in roofing. So far the method/product is only available for commercial buildings, but we hope an application for private homes will be in the market soon.

  6. how to build a simple electric generator Says:

    Always great to see people forming together to search more ways of free energy. This planet needs more persons like you, great post, look forward to reading more. thanks

  7. Sectional Garage  Says:

    lead acid batteries are not good for your health since it can lead to lead poisoning.;~

  8. Cooker Hoods · Says:

    Lead acid batteries should always be recycled because lead should never be dumped on the soil .

  9. Electrician Orange County Says:

    Thanks for this, really appreciate the input on this subject.

    In the grand design of things you’ll receive an A with regard to effort and hard work. Exactly where you misplaced me was first in the particulars. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me say to you just what did give good results. Your authoring is definitely incredibly engaging and this is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly notice a jumps in reason you make, I am not necessarily certain of how you appear to unite the details which in turn help to make your final result. For the moment I will yield to your position but hope in the future you actually link your dots better.
