As the Philippines undertakes new power capacity development to keep up with its growing economy, huge amounts of capital will be required to ensure ambitious targets are to be met.
Joining us in the keynote line up for Power & Electricity World Philippines 2016 is Allard Nooy, CEO of InfraCo Asia Development. Allard will be sharing insights into “stimulating greater FDI in the Philippines’ energy sector”.
As a donor-funded, commercially managed infrastructure company, InfraCo Asia’s mandate is to develop sustainable, socially responsible and commercially viable infrastructure projects that contribute to economic growth and social development in lower income countries in South and South East Asia. Allard brings over 25 years of strategic executive leadership experience in the infrastructure sector, primarily in emerging markets.
Benchmarking with other Southeast Asia nations, Allard will share the perspective of how energy policies, regulatory framework and electricity tariffs should be balanced to encourage and attract more foreign investments to support the power generation growth. He will offer crucial advice on overcoming challenges of financing power generation and renewable energy projects in the Philippines, and how power generators and project developers can tap into alternative sources of financing beyond domestic capital to expand project financing options.
