Overview

The Philippine government targets renewable energy to provide 35% of their electricity mix by 2030 and 50% by 2040, offshore wind is a key growth area with a technical potential of 207GW and by 2028 the government aims to have it’s first offshore wind installation. Realisation of these targets requires significant development of supply chains, facilities and infrastructure and “Wind Ports” are an essential part of that.

The UK is at the forefront of offshore wind developments and in 2023 Royal HaskoningDHV were appointed by Renewables UK as part of the “Floating Offshore Wind Taskforce” to investigate port infrastructure for offshore wind farms, identifying critical infrastructure to inform government and industry on the required interventions and provide clarity on the strategic investments to scale up and deliver a whole new industry.

As the UK has similar ambitions to the Philippines, many of the lessons learnt from the UK study can be applied to the Philippines infrastructure in order to strategically plan how to achieve the energy targets.
