The Philippine government began large-scale infrastructure planning and infrastructure construction in 2017, which greatly promoted the development of integrated solar street lights in the Philippines. According to data surveys, the Philippines is now the second largest market for integrated solar street lights in the world. Let me analyze why there is such a large market demand for integrated solar street lights in the Philippines.
The first reason: government policy support Integrated solar street light
1. The Philippines has shifted from an agriculture-based economy to a service industry and manufacturing-based economy. Therefore, the energy industry in the Philippines is a fast-growing economy and a fertile market. The Philippines will add 70 million kilowatts of power generation in the next five years. By 2030, its power generation capacity will double. 16 million people still have no reliable power supply. In such a rapidly growing market, with the increasing trend of distributed power generation, innovative technologies and renewable energy will play a role. The Philippines is seeking to leapfrog a new energy future, and this is a more important moment than ever. Domestic photovoltaic manufacturers and suppliers enter the Philippine market at this time, and it is just the right time!
2. Like many countries in Southeast Asia, the Philippines is also facing the dual challenges of population growth and rising energy demand. Relying on nearly half of its main energy supply imports, the country is highly affected by oil price fluctuations. Frequent tropical storms also adversely affect energy infrastructure. In this regard, the Philippines is determined to strengthen energy security, pursue low-carbon economic development, and make contributions to combating climate change. Renewable energy technologies have become increasingly prominent in national plans and decision-making. In 2011, the Philippine government approved an ambitious NREP project, which aims to achieve 15.3 GW of renewable energy installed capacity by 2030 (three times that of 2010).
3. The Philippines is one of the ASEAN member states, with a population of approximately 105 million people. The annual GDP growth rate in 2017 was as high as 6.685%. The outside world generally holds a positive attitude towards the future economic outlook of the Philippines. The Philippines is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire and has abundant geothermal resources. It is also located in Southeast Asia with sufficient sunshine. It has an average daily sunshine amount of about 4.5-5.5/kwh per square meter. It is rich in sunshine resources and the water resources are also extremely high in the Philippines. Rich, with an average annual rainfall of 2000-3000 mm. However, due to the influence of the geography of the archipelago, some areas have been suffering from power shortages for many years. As the Philippines is in a state of economic growth, the energy problem must be faced and resolved. As of 2017, the PV installed capacity in the Philippines has reached 885MW.
4. The Philippine government has issued various policies to promote renewable energy. It includes policies such as a tax holiday of up to 7 years for income tax and tax-free import of renewable energy technology and equipment. Beginning in 2020, the Philippine Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) will officially enter the implementation stage. The policy requires that among the total annual power generation proportion, renewable energy must increase at least 1% each year. The implementation of the policy is expected to stimulate the demand for installed capacity in the renewable energy market.
The second reason: the climatic conditions in the Philippines are very suitable for installing integrated solar street lights
The Philippines is located in the Western Pacific Ocean and Southeast Asia. It faces Taiwan Province of China across the Bashi Channel to the north, and faces Indonesia and Malaysia across the Sulawesi Sea and the Balabac Strait to the south and southwest. It borders the South China Sea on the west and the Pacific Ocean on the east. . …
The Philippines has a monsoon tropical rain forest climate with high temperature, rain, high humidity and many typhoons. The average annual temperature is about 27°C, and the average annual rainfall is between 2000-3000 mm in most areas. The western part of the archipelago has a dry season (11-April) and a rainy season (May-October). The eastern coast has rain all year round, with the most rain in winter. The southern region is also rainy all year round, and there is no obvious distinction between dry and rainy seasons. The Pacific Ocean in the east is the birthplace of typhoons. There are more typhoons from June to November every year.
The capital and largest city of the Philippines, Manila, is one of the most international cities in the world and one of the most diverse cities in the world. It is known as the “New York of Asia”. Manila, the capital city and largest port of the Philippines, is located on the east coast of Manila Bay, Luzon Island, the largest island in the Philippines. It is also called “Little Luzon” and is close to the natural fine harbor-Manila Bay. Manila was built on the banks of the Pasig River.
Manila has a tropical monsoon climate with only two seasons a year. The annual temperature is around 28°C. November-June is hot and humid, and June-October is the rainy season.
According to the monsoon tropical rain forest climate, high temperature, rain, humidity and typhoons, Clodesun also communicates with customers to determine lighting needs, and recommends solar street light styles and solutions based on geographic location and climate characteristics and needs. To determine the installation height, power, and lighting time of the integrated solar street light.
Clodesun hopes that we can also have our own warehouse and office in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, this year, which will help promote our products and make it more convenient for our customers.
