The MOA makes provision for the installation of 1-2 MW/h pilot biomass power-plants in these off-grid areas (islands), using gasification technology
The first study was Romblon Islands (a province 370km south of Manila) was completed at the end of May 2010 and a decision by NPC is pending. The objective is to provide off grid electricity to many of the 7000 Philippine islands that suffer from acute electricity shortages.
