Welcome to Bronzeoak Philippines
Established in 2003, Bronzeoak is a leader in the development and implementation of renewable energy projects in the Philippines, working with a range of local and international partners and investors for its projects. In 2006, we completed development of the first integrated sugarcane, ethanol and power cogeneration plant in Asia located on Negros Island, Philippines. Since early 2009, San Carlos Bioenergy has been capable of an annual production of 40 million liters of fuel ethanol, 40 million kilograms of sugar syrup and 60 million kw hours of renewable electricity.
Since 2010, we have been working to expand on this experience by developing four new power plants to help achieve the country’s goals of energy independence and sustainable development. In April of 2013, San Carlos BioPower, Inc. (“SC BioPower”) began construction on a new 19.99 megawatt (“MW”) biomass power plant in the San Carlos Agro‐Industrial Economic Zone on the eastern coast of Negros Occidental, Philippines. The new SCBioPower plant is scheduled to start operation in early 2015 and will provide 140 million KW hours per year to the grid. By 2014, South Negros BioPower, Inc will begin construction on a similar but larger 25MW power plant in La Carlota City, Negros Occidental to provide 175 million KW hours to the grid by early 2016. Thereafter, two further biomass power plants are planned for construction, taking our total capacity to nearly 100MW of biomass power delivering over 700 million KW hours to the grid to meet the growing demand for power amidst the country's economic resurgence. Outside the factory, we work backwards to develop, improve and sustain biomass feedstock and fuels, and forwards to provide fuel logistics, storage and infrastructure solutions.
In 2012, we expanded beyond its traditional niche in the biomass sector to pursue opportunities in other renewable technologies, and in September of 2013, began construction on the country's first large-scale solar farm, a 22MW facility that will deliver over 35 million KW hours to the grid by the middle of 2014.
