On the main island of the Philippines, Luzon, ENP is planning a sustainable energy project.
The principle is rather simple: Biomass materials such as coconut shells, rice husk, corn cobs, bamboo, agricultural and forestry waste are collected centrally. The materials get dried and pressed into uniform shape and are ultimately processed into electricity in a power plant unit. The electricity generated in this way is fed into the public grid - a state-regulated, fixed feed-in-tariff guarantees a predictable and stable economic outlook. A by-product is charcoal, which can be sold locally. This model can be scaled in accordance with available biomass and electricity demand within an area, as well as on available investment budgets. At the beginning, however, "proof of concept" is focusing on one selected location.
Our concept combines three basic principles and can therefore be applied at numerous locations.
Consistent use of environmentally friendly, renewable biomass and the cleanest possible low-emission power plant technology.
Electricity should be produced where it is needed to minimize transport losses and interruptions caused by inadequate infrastructure.
Short supply routes, easy-to-maintain technology, and - in a later step - production of own biomass to increase security of supply.
In general, electricity production from biomass can be considered wherever the following location factors are given:
A number of factors speak in favor of central and northern Luzon as primary locations:
