Globe has shifted another key telecom facility in Batangas, Philippines to be powered through renewable energy (RE) via the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Green Energy Option Program (GEOP). This move brings the total number of high-energy utilisation sites running on RE to 25. Some of these key locations include Makati, Quezon City, Taguig, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Tarlac, and Cebu among others.

The company is also exploring alternative energy solutions, including hybrid gensets and onsite solar panels in an attempt to transition away from traditional diesel gensets.

The move is in line with Globe’s goal to achieve Net Zero Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Additionally, it aims to source 44 per cent of its electricity from RE by 2030 increasing to 98 per cent by 2050, in compliance with regulatory timeline movements. 

The GEOP allows consumers to source RE from a licensed supplier which will provide a greener alternative to traditional energy sources.
