11 projects has already been cleared by the Department Of Energy, with approximately 2,000MW in capacity for grid impact studies in October.

Data shows that these 11 projects are capable of generating 1,877.9 MW of power.

Among of the 11 projects, 8 of these are all Renewable Energy sources.

Five of the eight RE projects are hydropower plants, of which the biggest is the 300-MW Bolusao pumped storage of San Lorenzo Ruiz Samar in Lawaan, Eastern Samar.

San Lorenzo Ruiz is also working on two other projects, namely the 150-MW Chico hydroelectric power project in Tabuk, Kalinga and the 140-MW Davao hydroelectric power project in Davao City.

The other two hydropower projects in the list is the 100-MW and 50-MW Wawa pumped storage 2 hydroelectric power plant in Rodriguez, Rizal. These plants are being constructed by Olympia Violago Water and Power Inc.

Two of the RE projects are solar namely the 15-MW Bogo 3 solar power plant of Sun Premier Philippine Corp.in Bogo, Cebu City and the 100-MW solar power plant of Sunpalo Solar Energy Inc. in San Miguel, Leyte.

Last in the list is the 14.9-MW Bagasse-Fired Cogeneration Plant of Crystal Sugar Inc. in Maramag, Bukidnon.

Of the total, three of these are still traditional power plants, namely the 600-MW coal-fired thermal power plant  of SMC Global Power Holdings Inc. in Sariaya, Quezon; the 344-MW subcritical coal-fired power plant of Masinloc Power Partners Ltd. in Masinloc, Zambales; and the 64-MW Power Barge 103 of Phinma Energy Corp. in Lapu-lapu City, Cebu.

There are now 78 projects were granted clearance to conduct GIS this year.
