Powertrends, the longest running energy exhibition in the Philippines, organized since 1995 by Leverage International, in cooperation with the Department of Energy will be held on September 3-4 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, Metro Manila, Philippines. This two day event themed “The Trends Shaping Renewable Energy” features an international exhibition, a business conference, networking cocktail and technical workshops. These are unique platforms for delivering expertise, bringing theory and practice together as well as offering an amazing opportunity to network with the most important people in the energy industry.
The Philippine energy sector is poised for transformation. There is a fast growing electricity demand resulting from the Build Build Build Program of the President. Along with the other 10 member countries of ASEAN, the Philippines is on track to make solar and other renewables account for 23% of the region’s total primary energy supply by 2025. The Philippine government is working to improve policies and investment framework for clean energy.
In line with these developments, Powertrends provides the platform for bringing together the players in these fields in one big gathering- where energy professionals and practitioners together with policy and law makers will assemble to exchange knowledge and build business relationships.
The international exhibition will showcase the latest in technologies for generating, transmitting, distributing and using power and electricity. It will also feature the latest innovations in electric vehicle, hybrids and others.
The conference agenda will cover the following major challenges and developments faced by the energy industry as it strives to achieve national independence and sustainability while riding through the wave of innovations: a new and transparent Philippine Conventional Energy Contracting Program (PCECP) that allows local and international exploration companies to develop and utilize indigenous petroleum resources under a service contract with the government; the new Philippine Electricity Market Memorandum by the Philippine Electricity Market Operator; the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act signed into law last May which institutionalizes energy efficiency and conservation, enhancing the efficient use of energy and granting incentives to energy efficiency and conservation projects in the country; LNG as the key to energy sustainability; renewed promotion of the geothermal industry; and the resurrection of the nuclear interest.
The 1st Philippine Floating Solar Forum 2019 will be co-located with Powertrends. The event will gather technology experts, project developers and practitioners, regulatory agencies, development agencies, local and foreign investors to impart knowledge, experiences and best practices on the floating solar technology and to discuss among experts the critical formulation and changes on the regulatory policies.
