PH is advised to cultivate skills for the wind power industry

Franz-Michael Mellbin, the Danish ambassador to the Philippines, has encouraged the Department of Energy (DOE) to create a policy that will guarantee the availability of Filipino expertise in this area given the growing interest of foreign corporations to participate in the Philippines’ wind energy sector.

Mellbin highlighted the chance for the Philippines to be a regional training hub because of the English proficiency of the Filipino population and the country’s highly globalized workforce in a statement released by the Danish Embassy in Manila late Monday evening.

The ambassador recommended that the DOE adopt a strategy for building a talent pool of skilled personnel for the wind industry.

A Philippine team to Denmark last April 24โ€“28, led by DOE Secretary Raphael Lotilla, focused on fostering cooperation in the wind energy sector.

This comes after the DOE granted three service contracts worth a combined $5 billion to the Danish company Copenhagen Infrastructure New Markets Fund (CINMF).

“The visit also demonstrated international support for Filipino technicians’ education for renewable energy jobs in the Philippines and abroadโ€”where they could play a crucial part in facilitating the global energy transition,” Mellbin continued.

During his visit to Denmark last week, Lotilla also had a meeting with the country’s permanent secretary of state for utilities, energy, and the environment. The two representatives decided to begin working on a potential memorandum of understanding for the energy industry.

Denmark is a pioneer in developing technology to help mitigate climate change and one of the world’s top producers of renewable energy.

Two Danish companies have made investments in the Philippines for offshore wind projects in less than a year since the Marcos government began.

These are Copenhagen Energy and CINMF, the first fully foreign-owned businesses to make investments in the nation’s renewable energy industry. They have 6 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity in total.
