Power problems and blackouts continue to pest the Philippines’ business sector as private individuals, enterprises and organizations pursue efforts in achieving renewable energy sources that are also environmentally sound such as wind, wave rather than depend on diesel, coal sources which are rising also in cost.

Solar technology has a huge potential to grow in the Philippines.

The Philippines’ electronics industry is optimistic of the country’s transformation into the solar manufacturing hub of Southeast Asia.

Electronics player, Semiconductor Electronics Industry of the Philippines Inc. (SEIPI) backs the strong potential of the solar energy component manufacturing. Photovoltaic or solar energy is one of the 20 new electronics sub-components technologies identified under the draft Electronics Roadmap of SEIPI.

More investors will be invited to trust in solar technology for the Philippine industry has talent and capabilities that can adopt, align or move in sync with this trend towards cleaner, renewable energy technology along with global manufacturing technology sectors.

Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar of active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy.

Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

In a Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) report, the industry targets to generate exports revenue of up to US$28 billion before the end of 2010.
