Philippines gets chilly with Qatar Cool, eyes sustainable cooling solutions

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is courting investment from Qatar Cool, the world’s largest district cooling provider, in a bid to boost energy efficiency and meet ambitious sustainability targets.

The move aligns with the government’s goal of achieving a 20 percent reduction in national energy consumption by 2030.

Qatar Cool’s technology offers a cost-effective and energy-saving alternative to traditional building air conditioning systems, potentially leading to significant reductions in energy use.

“We recognize the importance of energy-efficient projects in achieving our sustainability goals and, therefore, we are committed to supporting such initiatives through our enabling policies,” said DTI Secretary Alfredo Pascual. “Energy-efficient projects are paramount to achieving our sustainability goals. The DTI is committed to supporting such initiatives through favorable policies,” he said.

The DTI highlighted existing government incentives for projects utilizing energy-saving technologies, making the Philippines an attractive proposition for Qatar Cool.

The agency is urging Qatar Cool to explore locations beyond Metro Manila, where high-density areas present ideal conditions for implementing district cooling systems.
