DoE eyes for "LNG" power barge to Bohol

Consistent with Bohols green development agenda, the Department of Energy (DOE) unwittingly leaked its plan to bring to Bohol a cleaner source of power in a  barge.

During a press conference at the BE Grand Hotel in Panglao, no less than DOE Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi timidly confirmed the plan after a  slip of the tongue when he exposed the plan to send in a liquified natural gas (LNG) floating power plant to Bohol.

The press conference of the First  East Asia Energy Forum which also had Japanese professor president of the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia Hidetoshi Nishimura, Shigeru Kimura of ERIA, Energy Research Institute Network Chair and associate professor Romeo Pacudan,   Sec. Alfonso G. Cusi tackled the directions East Asia and the Philippines is taking in its energy development in response to the pressing industrialization needs of the times.

While the DOE admitted its direction towards an establishment of an energy source that is  attainable in the shortest term to keep up to the countrys development pace, the Philippine direction towards clean coal became apparent.

"The Philippine direction is building up more coal fired plants, which should comprise 50% of the 80% energy supplied by conventional energy," he said.

The rest of the 20% should be from  renewables.

The downside for renewables however is that these are dependent on the times.

When the sun is out for example, less energy is gathered or hydropower is dependent on the water supply, energy sources said.

The move for coal considers that the Philippines has coal while it is also available from Indonesia, Australia and Russia, its import price affected by economics of supply and demand, Sec. Cusi who led the host nation in the Asian Cooperation Dialog in Panglao. 

As to the environmental concerns of coal, the energy bigwig was quick to the follow-through: 50% is from green-coal technology, he stressed.

"Technology has done great lengths to reduce coal carbon emissions," the secretary said even as he assured that the government is also looking at socio economic as well as the ecological impacts of coal.

But with Malampaya in the Philippines producing natural gas, the DOE is eyeing these as source of back up power for Bohol.

This is also considering that the only time Bohol could have a redundant power supply system is when the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines completes its Cebu-Bohol interconnection by 2020.

An earthquake that shut down the geothermal plants in Leyte last July disrupted Bohols power supply blanketing the island in darkness for a few nights.

A few landbased plants later supplied 20 megawatts of the 69 megawatts the entire island needed.

Weeks later, NGCP tapped Bohol to the Cebu-Negros-Panay grid which supplied some of its power requirements.

Bohol officials who have yet to accept bids for more landbased power, has arranged for a diesel power barge to complement the supply, but none has arrived yet.

The DOE did not also say when the clean barge is coming and from where would this come from. (rahc/PIA7/Bohol)
