San Carlos Solar Energy, 15 Oct 2015 [cached]
This was indicated to the media by Department of Energy (DOE) director Mario Marasigan, explaining that one of the major hurdles had typically been on land acquisition for the location of the facilities.
Marasigan has emphasized that many project sponsors are currently advancing construction and installation of their facilities, yet he stressed that "still, the industry concern is: when are they going to finish?"
He said that local approvals, primarily on location issues, have been gridlocks in project implementations.
Marasigan has cited in particular that a strip of property could delay a project in entirety if the landowner will not agree to a purchase arrangement.
"Solar installation is land-intensive, so even if there's just one hectare that would have some issues, they could delay the development framework of projects," he stressed.
The solar race, he said, had reportedly been on various stages of developments - and the 500MW could have been easily achieved without the side concerns.

Mario Marasigan, Assistant Secretary of the Department of Energy, said the Philippines was blessed with resources for energy projects: sun, wind, water. "Starting today," he said, "we will be celebrating clean energy."
In the roundtable discussion on the future of compressed natural gas for transport in the Philippines, Marasigan said CNG was "not yet economically viable. Ankur Arora of Intermech Ltd of New Zealand pointed out the need to consider technical know-how from other countries. "Safety first," he said.
Marasigan mentioned the "huge capital investment in doing clean energy" and EVP Cecilia C Borromeo of the Land Bank replied, "We have funds."

This was indicated by DOE director Mario Marasigan in a recent forum hosted by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale (GIZ) as they explore hybrid renewable systems in powering up marginalized domains, primarily the off-grid areas.
For the net metering pilot, Marasigan noted that the targeted installations will be for state-run National Power Corporation, Luneta Park, Lung Center of the Philippines and the headquarters of the Philippine National Police.
These upcoming installations, Marasigan said, will serve "as demonstration of large-scale net metering concept."
Net metering will provide for the "prosumer set-up" in the country's power system - because that will then empower the consumers to produce their own electricity and sell to the grid any extra that they may have.
This has been part of the bigger policy realm prescribed for the RE sector - but in the multiplicity of developments introduced in the industry - this is one area that has yet to move notches ahead.
For the government institutions as "proof-of-concept," Marasigan noted that the PNP headquarters would be a strategic undertaking.

Mario Marasigan, DOE's Renewable Energy Management Bureau director, however, said the Philippines is not alone in its dilemma when it comes to ocean energy given that the industry is still at its nascent stage. "There are very limited ocean energy installations in the world, commercialization is difficult. Also, pricing mechanism is difficult to establish without sufficient basis and with limited comparative studies not only in the Philippines but also around the world," Marasigan said. Ocean energy capacity in commercial operations worldwide to date is only about 527 MW, with France currently having the largest existing ocean power facility with a generating capacity of 240 MW. Harnessing the ocean for power purposes involves various technologies that use tides, waves, and temperature difference to create energy. Marasigan said the country may not be able to see its first ocean power facility built in the near term given the various challenges and barriers it is currently facing. He said, however, that the DOE remains confident in its development locally and eyes the first ocean energy installation to happen by 2020.
