The Government of the Philippines asked the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to provide policy and advisory technical assistance (TA) to pilot and develop viable business models for rural community-based renewable energy in Mindanao. The TA will impact investment in renewable energy projects in the Philippines. The outcome will be development of a business model for livelihood development using renewable energy in the Caraga region of Mindanao. The TA will develop the renewable business models through at least five pilot systems, using microhydro, solar photovoltaic, small wind, and other indigenous sources, with an estimated capacity of 200 kilowatts (kW) overall to serve the energy needs of about 1,500 households in the Caraga region of Mindanao.
