MANILA, Philippines — The Gotianun Group is strengthening its renewable energy presence in its developments in New Clark City in Pampanga and Ciudad de Calamba in Laguna.

The Filinvest-ENGIE Renewable Energy Enterprise Inc. (FREE) yesterday inked a memorandum of understanding with Filinvest Land Inc. (FLI) to install renewable energy generation facilities in Filinvest Innovation Parks at New Clark City and Ciudad de Calamba.

FREE is a joint venture between FDC Utilities Inc. (FDCUI), the power utility arm of Filinvest Development Corp. (FDC), and ENGIE Services Philippines, which was established in 2018 to deploy sustainable solar solutions in the Philippines.

Juan Eugenio Roxas, FREE president and CEO, said the initiative would help bolster emerging sustainable, smart cities in the country.

“With these measures that improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, we, together with FLI, aim to deliver more impactful climate action,” Roxas said.

Filinvest Innovation Park at New Clark City is a 120-hectare business hub within the 288-hectare world-class, eco-efficient, and multi-use township Filinvest New Clark City.

It aims to provide modern and strategically-located warehouse and factory facilities to global and local businesses alike.

Filinvest Innovation Park at Ciudad de Calamba is a 25-hectare industrial development that aims to cater to the growing enterprises that wish to move or expand in Laguna.

FLI senior vice president Francis Ceballos said the Filinvest Innovation Parks is poised to be a catalyst for progress.

“Our industrial developments are master-planned for the needs of rapidly growing industries, such as logistics, e-commerce, and data centers,” he said.

“ENGIE empowers FLI to develop sustainable townships and business parks that are set to shape the Philippines landscape. With this partnership, we aim at contributing significantly to the country’s journey towards net-zero emissions,” said Thomas Baudlot, CEO of Energy Solutions and country head for Southeast Asia.
