This project appears to have been delayed. AES Philippines reported it will set up a 10-megawatt (MW) battery-based energy storage facility in Zambales, the first to be built in the country. The storage facility is expected to be completed by middle of next year. It will be set up beside the company’s 600 MW Masinloc coal plant. Excess electricity produced by the coal plant or from other sources will be stored in batteries for use when regular supply to the grid falls short of requirement. AES said the battery storage project will enhance grid reliability. It will also eventually lower power costs as it can improve the stability of transmission systems. Energy storage will help add to the low reserve capacity of the Philippines. It will also help store energy coming from the new renewable energy plants that will go online and help ease challenges associated with an island-based grid system.
