    Ayala unit acquires US wind power assets

    March 17, 2023 - Business Mirror


      ACEN Corp. announced Thursday that its joint venture company, UPC Power Solutions LLC, is acquiring 136 megawatts (MW) of wind power assets from United States-based GlidePath Power Solutions LLC.

      UPC Power Solutions signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement with GlidePath for the acquisition of a portfolio of eight operating wind projects located in the state of Texas.

      'We've long set our sights on the US as our next market following our sustained success in the Asia Pacific. We are committed to enact the accelerated green energy transition globally, and these new partnerships ensure that ACEN is well-placed to harness the vast opportunities in the US renewables space,' said ACEN International CEO Patrice Clausse.

      This development marks ACEN's anticipated entry into the fast-growing US renewables market as it expands its geographic footprint beyond the Asia Pacific region.

      It can be recalled that ACEN, through its subsidiary ACEN USA LLC, formed a strategic partnership with Pivot Power Management (PivotGen) and UPC Solar and Wind Investments LLC to pursue opportunities to acquire operating wind projects in the US, and explore strategies for extending their useful life through preventative maintenance and repowering.

      'We are excited to announce this acquisition. We look forward to successfully repowering the portfolio so that these projects can continue to deliver clean, renewable power and provide jobs and economic opportunity in local communities,' said PivotGen CEO Tim Rosenzweig.

      ACEN said the sale would be subject to regulatory approvals including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, an independent agency that regulates the interstate transmission of electricity, natural gas, and oil.

      The energy platform of conglomerate Ayala Corp. has about 4,000 MW of attributable capacity from owned facilities in the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, and Australia, with a renewable share of 98 percent, which is among the highest in the region.

      The company's aspiration is to be the largest listed renewables platform in Southeast Asia, with a goal of reaching 20 gigawatts of renewables capacity by 2030.
