The Korea Energy Agency is developing new renewable distributed energy generation systems based on photovoltaic power generators in the Philippines.
The energy corporation announced on Aug. 20 that it has recently signed a joint contract with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the National Electrification Administration (NEA) of the Philippines to develop new renewable energy distributed generators.
The distributed generation system produces the energy using sunlight and wind, and then 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.
KEPCO will be in charge of managing the overall project, from installing the new renewable energy control system to designing the project, construction, and training.
