NGCP pledged its commitment to President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s 2023 energy initiatives. NGCP in a statement vows to concentrate all available resources toward the completion of ongoing transmission projects while expediting others in the pipeline.
Recognizing the importance of increasing the presence of renewable energy in the country’s energy mix, NGCP will draw on its strategic partnership with the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC). Leveraging SGCC’s expertise in renewable energy integration, NGCP hopes to bolster its capabilities to hasten the transition to renewable and sustainable energy sources.
The state power transmission company stated the collaboration with SGCC allows them to accommodate the increasing adoption of renewable energy technologies into the national grid.
NGCP also prioritized improving disaster resilience of the grid infrastructure. They vowed to intensify its ongoing and continuous upgrade of equipment and manpower, especially those that will prevent disruptions, or provide expedient repair, in case of natural disasters. Currently, NGCP has been developing local talent by investing in world-class training and scholarships for aspiring Filipino engineers.
