Project context, objectives and description

The development of the project is envisaged under the vision of the Provincial Government of Bataan, who is pushing the agenda of “carbon neutral Bataan”. Based on the leadership level discussion between the two organizations, Provincial Government of Bataan shared their interest with GGGI to put up land as an equity for the development of up to 50 MW solar PV plant. With booming economic outlook in Bataan there is a certain surge of energy demand and thus power generation is a flourishing industry in Bataan, where power plants are operational and some in the construction stage both in Limay and Mariveles. However, these power plants are largely using coal and other fossil fuel sources.  

GGGI’s intervention is to demonstrate the government interest in renewable energy transition, mobilize the in-country support from various national agencies, and shall attract private sector to engage with the market and submit concrete investment plans for solar PV deployment in Bataan.  

This project is aligned with IO2. Increased green growth investment flows which enable partner governments to implement green growth policies.
