QSTec, Philippines discuss renewables collaboration

DOHA, November 12, 2017

Officials from Qatar Solar Technologies (QSTec), a member of Qatar Foundation, and the Philippines’ Department of Energy (DoE) recently discussed ways to enhance collaboration in the fields of renewable energy, said a report.

QSTec chairman and CEO Dr Khalid Klefeekh al-Hajri recently met with the Department of Energy secretary Alfonso G Cusi and other officials to discuss QSTec’s maturation in the energy industry and its integration across the solar value chain and the growing solar energy market in the Philippines, as well as possible collaboration opportunities, added the Gulf Times report.

QSTec is Mena’s first fully-integrated solar company, as well as the largest polysilicon producer in the region with a manufacturing facility of 8,000 metric tonnes per annum in Qatar.

The organisation is “strongly committed to collaborating with international partners in the interest of progressively harvesting solar energy, combating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions”.

QSTec sees far-reaching potential for collaborating with the Philippines in effectively meeting these common targets.

Under the Philippines’ Renewable Energy Roadmap 2017-2040, the country aims to develop and install 20,000 megawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2040.

Already, Philippines has prompted a number of new initiatives aimed at fast-tracking renewable energy growth and investment.
