Shell’s flagship station along the northbound lane of the South Luzon Expressway in Biñan, Laguna is shifting to renewable energy in powering its Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points as well as its food and retail outlets. The power will be provided by Shell Energy Philippines (SEPH) through a mix of solar, geothermal, and hydro energies.
SEPH is a retail electricity supplier under the Shell Group offering competitive and environment-friendly energy solutions to industrial and commercial customers in the Philippines. It offers a whole range of energy sources from full renewable energies to the traditional supply of electricity to meet the changing requirements of its customers.
“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 Lorelie Quiambao-Osial, Country Chair for Shell companies in the Philippines.
Shell Mamplasan 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%, as compared to a traditional site.
Shell companies in the Philippines has started utilizing renewable energy sources for its offices and mobility/retail 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 renewable energy through SEPH.
The Shell Import Facility in Tabangao is 100% 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.
