On BusinessMirror: BPI extends loans to eco-friendly projects and programs

Davao City – Ayala-owned  bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), one of the country’s largest universal banks, sponsored the staging of the first Mindanao energy efficiency (EE) forum held in Marco Polo Hotel Davao recently.

One of its clients under its Sustainable Energy Finance program, Italpinas European Design and Eco-Development Corp., presented its EE case for the real estate industry. In an interview, Italpinas Chairman Arch. Romolo Valentino Nati said there is a need to correct misimpression that green design or initiative is costly.

Funded through a loan with BPI, Italpinas has built an eco-friendly mix-use building in Cagayan de Oro City.

“The mix-use building offers the same price range with other buildings in the market. The building design provides natural ventilation and temperature control inside the building. Use of air-condition units is 60 percent of the total power consumption and with green designs the consumption of energy can be reduced,” shared Nati.

BPI provides funding for EE and renewable-energy projects for companies interested in pursuing green initiatives, and the savings they generate from energy consumption are used to pay for the loan.

“Energy efficiency is the most reliable and cheapest means to contribute to achieving energy security. Power shortages are prevalents in the country and energy cost is increasing. The benefits of EE projects are immediate than building a new power plant, which will take two or three years to operate,” said BPI Sustainable Energy Finance Head Nanette Biason.

On the Manila Bulletin: In CDO, CEC Builds Mindanao’s First Eco-Friendly Building

Constellation Energy Corporation (CEC) is spreading its business interests from renewable power to green architecture by building Mindanao’s first eco-friendly building in Cagayan de Oro City.

CEC’s partnership with ItalPinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corporation (ITPI) has earned both firms local and international awards for their pioneering work in the city.

“Constellation Energy’s venture into green architecture is but a natural consequence of our company’s full thrust in exploring multi-technology RE projects,” said CEC Chairman Jose Leviste, whose firm has RE service contracts with the Department of Energy (DOE) for several geothermal, wind and hydroelectric projects all over the country.

Italian architect Romolo V. Nati, ITPI Chairman and CEO, said the firm’s first project, the Primavera Residences – a P450-million mixed-use 10-story twin-tower condominium – has eco-friendly design features, such as an inner courtyard and a cross-ventilation layout among the units to increase natural airflow and illumination.

The 160-unit Primavera Residences Tower A, which was completed last year, boasts of shaded façades to reduce direct sun illumination on the windows to bring down internal temperature of each unit. The building is equipped with photovoltaic solar panels on the rooftop for renewable energy production.

“With ItalPinas, we put our money where our mouth is by going to great lengths to put up eco-friendly and sustainable building,” said Nati, who also sits as vice chair of Constellations Energy.

Atty. Jose D. Leviste III, president of ItalPinas, said Primavera’s “passive design elements” had resulted in the reduction of 20 energy consumption in air-conditioning expense for their building residents.

Due to its revolutionary nature-friendly designs, Nati and Filipino architects at ItalPinas have received a number of green architecture awards, including one of the “Best Condo Developments” in the Philippines at the 2011 Southeast Asia Property Awards (SEAPA) held in Singapore in November 2011; and the “Special Energy Award” in the 2011 Design Against the Elements (DAtE) global architectural design competition.

Recently, its latest green condominium project received recognition from the Climate Technology Initiative Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN), whose funding partners include the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Set up in 2009, ItalPinas EuroAsian Design and Eco-development Corporation has partnerships with ICCP (Investment & Capital Corporation of the Philippines) Group of Companies, the leading independent investment bank in the country and the owner of a land development estate in Northern Mindanao; Habitat for Humanity Philippines; Pueblo de Oro Development Corporation; and FODC (First Oriental Development Corporation), a triple AAA contractor specializing in green building construction.

‘Green jeepneys’ now ply Cagayan de Oro

THE first ever electric passenger jeepneys in Northern Mindanao are only found in this capital city and regional center.

Environment-friendly and cost-efficient, these e-jeepneys can be found in Mindanao’s benchmark for eco-friendly developments—Pueblo de Oro Business Park—plying as shuttle services in its environs, especially to and from the surrounding subdivisions, mall and universities.

But plans are in the boards to bring the e-jeepneys out of Pueblo de Oro and into the city’s thoroughfares as part of Pueblo de Oro’s campaign for the environment.

The only hindrance to make this a reality is the lack of franchise from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), said Rommel T. Juan, vice president of PhUV Inc., one of Filipino companies that make the e-jeepneys.

Juan told journalists during a press conference, July 5, following the launching of Primavera Residences, the first environment-friendly condominium high-rise in Northern Mindanao, that e-jeepneys are the commuters’ vehicle for the future, which he said is already here in the present.

‘Green’ Project in Cagayan de Oro Eyed

ITALPINAS INC. is putting up the first “green” eco-sustainable building complex in Cagayan de Oro, which is capable of generating part of its own electricity requirements for the buildings’ common spaces.

In a briefing yesterday, Italpinas chief executive Romolo Nati said the building was designed to have energy-saving and energy-generating features as the two buildings will be equipped with solar panels at the rooftop.

Nati said the use of solar panels could help lower the electricity bill that will be charged to tenants for the use of the common areas and facilities such as the gym and hallways, among others.
