AboitizPower, Vivant, Vena Energy to Construct Samar Wind Project
Aboitiz Power Corp. has partnered with Vena Energy and Vivant Energy Corp. in putting a 206-megawatt (MW) wind power project in Visayas.

The joint venture will be called Lihangin Wind Energy Corp. The three companies signed an agreement to construct and operate the San Isidro Wind Power Project in San Isidro, Northern Samar.

In a report by Philippine Star, Aboitiz Power said that the wind project is looking to reach its financial close and begin construction by the fourth quarter.

PH economy seen growing by 5.5% in 2023
MANILA – The Philippine economy is projected to grow by 5.5 percent this year, driven by the growth in government spending, a report released by the First Metro Investment Corporation (FMIC) and the University of the Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) said.

In the September issue of The Market Call released on Wednesday, FMIC and UA&P said Philippine economic growth in the third quarter of the year will likely reach 5.0 to 5.2 percent.

For the fourth quarter of this year, FMIC and UA&P project the country's gross domestic product (GDP) to grow by 6 percent.

Li-Ion Battery Improvements to Drive a 6x Increase in Global EV Battery Output by 2030
With aggressive government decarbonization targets and OEM electrification strategies, electric vehicle (EV) production will majorly increase this decade. This will require a corresponding growth in EV battery output. New research from global technology intelligence firm ABI Research finds that global EV battery output production will increase nearly six times to 2,585GWh by 2030.

“Battery cost and production volume are the key barriers to adoption for EVs. The most important technologies are, therefore, those that make batteries cheaper or easier to manufacture at scale. Revolutionary technologies such as solid-state batteries promise improved ranges and reduced charging times, generating much media attention, but are too expensive and difficult to manufacture. Battery developments this decade will focus on evolutionary improvements on current lithium-ion batteries,” said Dylan Khoo, Electric Vehicles Industry Analyst at ABI Research.

The most advanced lithium-ion batteries currently available can achieve 1,000 km of range or charge in under 20 minutes. Further improvements will be made through technologies like the fully silicon anodes developed by companies such as Sila, expected to be delivered as soon as 2025. Solid-state batteries are unlikely to significantly impact this decade because their adoption would require changes in cell design and manufacturing, unlike improvements on existing lithium-ion battery technology.
