The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) has met with various generation companies from Luzon and Visayas that are connected to the country’s power grid to harmonize the transmission with the generation industry.
In a statement, NGCP said that it recently held the Third Generators Conference to present the current status of its transmission operations, and its effect on power generation and dispatch.
During the gathering, NGCP, the country’s sole transmission service provider and system operator, reported information critical to the operations of the generators, such as the current power supply and demand situation and outlook, and ongoing and proposed transmission projects of the company.
Dispatch protocols was also discussed during the conference, which underscored the importance of smooth coordination between the grid operator and power supply providers in ensuring the reliable flow of electricity from generators to distributors.
NGCP has been conducting generators conferences for the past two years, both of which proved to be productive for the firm and participants.
The next leg of the conference will be held for power producers and related government agencies located in Mindanao.
“NGCP’s main purpose in conducting this generators conference is to keep our generation customers informed of NGCP’s operational highlights and the efforts to improve the dispatch of available power in the grid,” NGCP spokesperson lawyer Cynthia Perez-Alabanza said.
“Generators are valued partners in the industry. Addressing their concerns is crucial in improving the whole power industry,” she added.
Among those who attended the recent conference were representatives of the Philippine Independent Power Producers Association Inc., Department of Energy, Energy Regulatory Commission, National Transmission Corp., National Power Corp., Philippine Electricity Market Corp., Grid Management Committee, Power Sector Assets and Liabilities
Management Corp., National Electrification Administration and various generation companies.
