Philippines With Shell To Study Use Of Renewable Energy For EV Charging Stations


The Department of Energy (DOE) has signed an agreement with Shell Energy Philippines, and Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation. This agreement will allow for a pilot study to explore the potential use of renewable energy such as solar power in EV charging stations.


DOE released a statement saying that Secretary Raphael Lotilla and Lorelie Osial (PSPC president and CEO) signed the agreement to promote clean energy in EV charging stations.


Lotilla stated that she commended PSPC and SEPH for their collaboration with the DOE in this admirable undertaking – a solid testament to their determination in maximizing value creation meanwhile contributing to global climate change mitigation.”


He said that this is in keeping with the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act, which aims to create an enabling climate to encourage the adoption of EVs as well as support infrastructures such as charging stations.


The pilot project will see the private sector supply, install, maintain, and monitor EV charging station installations; verify energy efficiency, performance, and savings when using renewable energy; as well as optimize clean energy use.

The DOE said that the output of the study would be used by the agency as a reference to help it develop policies and regulations for adopting renewable energy for EV charging stations.

The pilot study data will be used as a benchmark by PSPC and SEPH for the development and rollout of e-vehicle charger networks at their existing and future Shell-branded mobility locations.

Lotilla stated that Shell could be positioned to take advantage of these alternative opportunities in order to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth. They would also add a longer-term vision of clean technologies, renewable energy investment, and a better portfolio.
