Natural gas is a naturally occurring gas mixture that can be collected and processed to generate power. Using natural gas is environmentally friendly because it is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel and releases less than half the emissions of coal.
It only takes minutes for a natural gas plant to start up, making it flexible enough to adjust to shifting power demands.
That’s why using natural gas with renewable energy, like solar, is the cleaner, better combination. When there is not enough sunlight, flexible gas plants can provide the missing power quickly, helping keep the lights on. Natural gas does good in every way.
is sourced from the sun using solar panels. It is one of the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy sources. Not only can it generate electricity, it can also be used to heat water for commercial or domestic purposes. When sunlight is low, solar energy is best complemented with flexible power plants like natural gas.
First Gen uses the spare parcels of land at the Burgos Wind Project site to operate the 6.8-MW Burgos Solar Project.
which converts the energy from flowing water into electricity, is a green energy source that does not emit greenhouse gases or create air pollution. It is flexible because the output of hydropower plants can easily be adjusted based on current needs. In addition to being a sustainable form of energy, hydropower can also help with flood control, irrigation and water supply.
utilizes turbines to capture kinetic energy from wind to generate electricity. Aside from being a renewable source of energy, wind power has one of the lowest environmental impacts compared to other sources, as it produces zero emissions, and also saves billions of gallons of water every year as wind turbines don’t require water to produce energy or to cool down equipment.
power plants use the steam from beneath the earth’s surface to power turbines and generate electricity. Unlike coal plants, which burn fossil fuels to create steam, geothermal plants simply use the high temperatures from the earth’s core to do the job, and are thus a source of clean, renewable energy. The Philippines, being part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, is particularly abundant with this form of power generation.
