With its abundant sunshine, the Philippines is a perfect location to harvest the sun’s energy.
The sun-drenched nation is also the region’s most disaster-prone, with up to 20 typhoons slamming into the archipelago every year.
But despite these natural hazards, the Philippines, with its long coastline, is emerging as a frontrunner in trialling floating solar technology; if it can work in a country routinely battered by storms, then it could probably work in other countries.
This video highlights the Philippines’ floating solar potential, and is part of Eco-Business’s series on Southeast Asia’s clean energy transition.
