Sasmuan, Pampanga – January 30, 2024 – PNOC, in partnership with Mr. Hee Meng Chia of Moorfields Capital Pte Ltd, Singapore, unveiled a groundbreaking innovation in sustainable energy on January 26, 2024, which serves as a follow-up to The Everything Energy Forum #6 that introduces aquavoltaics as a transformative technology poised to revolutionize electricity production in the community.

Under the leadership of Mayor Catalina M. Cabrera-Bagasina, Sasmuan welcomed representatives from PNOC, the Bureau of Food and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and Fishpond Owners (FPOs). The forum provided a platform to address key issues and foster collaborative dialogue. Following the discussions, site oculars of the Washed and Operating Fishponds in Sasmuan provided valuable insights into the potential impact of aquavoltaics.

With 76% of Sasmuan’s land area dedicated to aquaculture, sustaining 85% of its labor force, the introduction of aquavoltaics holds immense promise. This innovation anticipates increased productivity and income for fisherfolks while offering an eco-friendly solution for power generation. The activity underscores a shared commitment from PNOC and Moorfields to advancing sustainable energy solutions tailored to local needs. As Sasmuan explores the potential of aquavoltaics, the benefits extend beyond economic gains, contributing to a greener and more resilient future.
