Financing and Integrating Renewable Energy for the City of Butuan
As of: December 2019
Objective and activities
The Project convenes key interest groups in Butuan City and formalizes these into a multi-stakeholder power development planning (PDP) group for inclusive, locally responsive, long-term, affordable, sustainable power solutions that maximize indigenous renewable resources in aid of local and national development objectives, through a City Energy Development Master Plan (CEDMP). Such groups will undergo a workshop series on various energy planning aspects, i.e. demand side load curve forecasting, technology screening curve, resource assessment of renewable energy, technical writing, to empower them to technically and financially assess proposals by power development proponents. These groups will be made an integral and prerequisite component of the PDP process that at present largely obtains multi-stakeholder input posthumously. Lastly, the project aims to develop and disseminate a financing product that can be used by energy project proponents to implement the CEDMP.
