PROJECT OBJECTIVE

The Philippine Smart Grid Pilot Project, supported by AFD, is an initiative implemented by the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), the largest electricity distribution utility in the Philippines. The project aims to develop and deploy smart grid technologies and solutions in selected areas to enhance energy efficiency, enable demand response, and improve overall grid management.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Manila Electric Company (Meralco), the largest distribution utility in the Philippines with more than 5 million customers, currently is embarking on its advanced smart grid roadmap with prepay smart metering as its first service. With this, households across Meralco’s service territory will be able to better manage their energy consumption and are poised to reap the benefits of a modernized electric system, thanks in part to a smart energy infrastructure by GE’s Digital Energy business (NYSE: GE) and Trilliant. This first phase of Meralco’s long-term smart grid vision is integrating “smart intelligence” into the electric distribution network to help consumers better manage their electricity consumption. With this advanced technology, consumers will be empowered with the information that will help them track and manage their energy usage and bills more efficiently and effectively.
