It’s incredible to be a part of the scientific community in the country, meeting the people who care about research projects being carried over to real-life settings.
And being a part of the microgrid project where we designed a microgrid that can still operate even when disconnected from the main grid, I can’t help myself dream about all the things that could happen in the Philippine energy sector in the next ten years.
Research projects like these often give birth to demonstration projects. And demonstration projects make way for legislators to craft policies and even update existing ones to create an environment for such projects to thrive.
In the meantime, while we are still waiting for microgrid projects to become a norm in the main grid, here’s a blog post I wrote about decentralized energy systems.
