ACEN’s increase in renewables capacity supported by Power Factors’ Greenbyte platform
Agreement to support Philippine-listed energy platform’s 5,000 MW renewables push in Asia-Pacific
June 1st, 2022– ACEN, the Philippine-based listed energy platform of the Ayala Group, continues to tap Power Factors’ Greenbyte performance optimization solution to manage its solar and wind capacity to improve capabilities and gain efficiencies across its operations. ACEN uses the Power Factors’ Greenbyte solution to bolster solar and wind performance by centralizing and analyzing data, detecting anomalies, and unlocking productivity.
ACEN’s nearly 590 MW of solar and wind capacity currently monitored by the Greenbyte solution includes: 18 MW MonteSol in Negros Oriental, 80 MW IslaSol in Negros Occidental and 45 MW SacaSol in Negros Occidental, 63 MW Palauig Solar in Zambales, 120 MW Alaminos Solar in Laguna, 54 MW Guimaras Wind in Guimaras, 81 MW North Luzon Renewables and 52 MW NorthWind in Ilocos Norte, and 75 MW Sidrap Wind in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
The Greenbyte performance monitoring and analytics tools will also be integrated at an additional facility in Luzon, ACEN’s 4 MW Bataan RE Tech Hub, which will test energy and storage technologies ahead of large-scale deployment.
Gabino Ramon Mejia, ACEN’s Executive Director and Head of Plant Operations in the Philippines, said, “We are happy to expand our partnership with Power Factors’ Greenbyte platform, given the high levels of performance, value, and customer service we’ve already experienced in our renewable energy plants. ACEN’s share of renewables capacity is already one of the highest in the region, standing at 87% today, and we look forward to achieving the highest levels of performance optimization as we transition into a purely renewables company and realize our Net Zero aspirations by 2050.”
Magnus Henriksson, Chief Customer Officer at Power Factors, said, “Our Greenbyte platform has a strong track record in the Asia-Pacific region, and we are prepared for rapid growth as nations such as the Philippines accelerate their energy transition. Our mission is to support the work of regional leaders like ACEN.”
Today, ACEN is present in the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, and Australia, and is poised to become the largest listed renewables platform in Southeast Asia, with 5,000 MW of renewables capacity by 2025. It currently has 18,000 MW of renewables projects in its pipeline.
