Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

The project involves the introduction of a new 28 MW binary geothermal power plant to the existing 120 MW flash geothermal power plant owned and operated by the partner participant in the Mahanagdong district of Leyte Island. As a superior decarbonization technology, Organic Rankine Cycle technology is adopted to enable geothermal power generation at relatively low temperatures, resulting in clean and stable power generation.
This project contributes to the achievement of Philippines‘ policy for a renewable energy ratio target of 35% in 2030.
