The E-Guideline on Large Solar PV project Development in the Philippines is part of The Solar PV Guidebook developed by the Department of Energy (DOE) together with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) under the “Support of the Climate Change Commission” (SupportCCC) project funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB; Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz, Bau und Reaktorsicherheit).
The guideline covers solar PV project with a capacity above 100 kWp and only a grid-connected project. It also provides guidance to RE developers in the development of a solar PV system under three business schemes. It also gives information to decision makers within the Philippines’ energy sector and other stakeholders to ensure efficient administration and timely implementation of solar PV projects in the Philippines. It is the goal of guideline developers that recommendations for policymakers can be formulated, based on the information given by the guidelines, on how administrative procedures can be improved o increase private investment and market activity in the Philippine solar PV sector.
Legal and administrative milestones and procedures are analysed in order for them to fulfil the conditions for availing incentives and other privileges as specified in Chapter VII of the Renewable Energy Act of 2008 (Republic Act 9513) and in Section 18 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the Republic Act 9513.
This guideline is integrated into the online ASEAN RE Guidelines platform, developed by ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and the Renewable Energy Support Programme for ASEAN (ASEAN-RESP). The guideline is catering to this effort and will be used as part of regional knowledge sharing. Further information is available at www.re-guidelines.info
