USTDA awarded a grant to the Aboitiz Power Corporation (APC), which manages distribution utilities throughout the Philippines, to develop a smart grid roadmap and implementation plan for the Visayas region.
This technical assistance, which will be undertaken by ESTA International, LLC (Herndon, VA), will help APC minimize distribution losses and improve access to reliable power.
The company emphasized that the project will help ensure system resiliency to limit the impact of natural- and human-caused disasters – which is especially important in light of the powerful typhoon that struck the Philippines in November 2013.
Mr. Sebastian Lacson, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Visayan Electric Company, a Aboitiz Power group company, will present on Innovation at Smart Elevated Meter Cluster at the 2nd Southeast Asia Utilities Innovation Forum, scheduled from March 25-26，2015 in Manila.
