LTFRB has a moratorium on issuing jeepney franchises to ICE (internal combustion engine)/diesel jeeps. Lots of places still need jeeps and have been experimenting with using eJeepneys. But the battery technology being employed locally leaves much to be desired. These currently available eJeepneys have high cost of ownership due short battery lifespan, low endurance requiring constant charging, and batteries weighing as much as the passengers, leading to decreased efficiency. Diesel Jeepneys...

Transport in many small island communities in the Philippines is crippled due to the high cost of boat travel, averaging 1000 pesos per hour of travel, or roughly 5 DAYS' worth of income for a rural family living in small islands, the very people who need to travel by boat. With a crippled transport comes trade limitations, which in turn impact their livelihood. These communities tend to have subsistence economies because of this, and at that economic level, they are often neglected by...

There are a lot of commercial and industrial facilities still using old and inefficient HVAC equipment, etc. in the Philippines that require retrofits.  Most of them have budget constraints that is why we offer a BOT type solution using the savings to pay off the investment and the services.  This is popularly known as ESCO.

Each year, P16 billion worth of electricity is stolen and paid for by well-paying consumers.  At the macro level, the amount of electricity pilferage is equivalent to operating a 300 MW power generating plant.   According to a multilateral organization, if apprehended, up to 50% of this demand can be reduced if users have to pay for that electricity.   Thus, an investment of P14 billion in additional plant capacity could be avoided, let alone the savings in fuel and operating costs.

The results of a 2015 study from Yale university show that the wood harvested in the whole Philippines for woodfuels production amount for more than 12 million tons per year and that one fifth of the woodfuels burned for cooking in the Philippines (2525kt) are exceeding the biomass regeneration potential in the area where they are collected and are directly contributing to climate change. The situation of the Philippines’ cooking sector is relatively specific. Indeed, while the heavy...

People want good quality food, but they don't have access to it. We are trying to solve how urban cities can consistently have access to high quality fresh vegetables and fruits that are grown with minimum resources and without the use of harmful chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides. One possible solution is to grow in vertical farms.  This technology is not new but the  capital costs and operational costs are hindrances to adoption  which we are taking steps to solve. If you...
