SHELL Energy Philippines (SEPH), the retail electricity supplier under the Shell Group, will supply renewable energy (RE) to another mobility site of the oil firm located in Biñan, Laguna.
Lorelie Quiambao-Osial, country chairman for Shell companies in the Philippines, said Shell Mamplasan mobility site has switched to RE.
The station with Shell Recharge charging points will be powered through a mix of solar, geothermal, and hydro energies.
“The switching to renewable energy at our operations shows our commitment to reducing our own carbon emissions. We continue to work with partners in the decarbonization journey as we transition to a lower carbon economy,” said Osial.
Shell Mamplasan, located at South Luzon Expressway, is the second Shell mobility site to be powered by renewable energy from SEPH. The first one was Shell North Luzon Tollway 1 (NLT1) in Balagtas, Bulacan.
In 2020, Shell began transforming its retail fuel stations into one-stop mobility destinations featuring sustainable solutions. These solutions help reduce energy consumption by approximately 30 percent, as compared to a traditional site.
Shell companies in the Philippines has started utilizing RE sources for its offices and mobility fuel stations. Aside from Shell Mamplasan and Shell NLT1, the SciP headquarters in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig and the Shell Import Facility (SHIFT) in Tabangao, Batangas are now powered by RE through SEPH.
The Shell Import Facility in Tabangao is 100 percent powered by a combination of solar, geothermal, and hydro energies provided by SEPH. The onsite solar farm covers 5,220 solar panels and seven inverters, which can generate up to 300-megawatt hour.
