Philippine Power Industry Global Business Power Corporation (GBP), with a total gross capacity of 1,091 MW, is a leading independent power producer in the Visayas, with presence in Mindanao and Mindoro islands. Having diversified power generation facilities that are capable of supplying base, intermediate, peak load and ancillary support, GBP is one of the few to offer flexible energy solutions for varying power requirements.

Tracing its roots from the Visayas region and Mindoro island, GBP has carved its niche when it established baseload power plants in Cebu (through subsidiary Cebu Energy Development Corporation) and Iloilo (through subsidiary Panay Energy Development Corporation) to end the frequent brownouts in the region during the late 2000s. The commercial operations of GBP’s baseload power plants has stabilized power supply and has effectively transformed Cebu and Iloilo into dynamic engines of growth in the region.

Committed to serve the nation with its power supply requirements, GBP has expanded outside the Visayas region to include foothold in the emerging Mindanao market through a 50% equity stake in Alsons Thermal Energy Corporation (ATEC). ATEC owns Sarangani Energy Corporation and San Ramon Power, Inc.
GBP sets its sights on becoming a total sustainable energy solutions provider by pursuing diversified technologies that include renewable energy sources, by delivering energy services beyond power generation and by incorporating innovation at the heart of its strategy to grow the business.
The Philippine Power Industry is composed of Generation, Transmission and Distribution sectors. As part of the generation sector, GBP produces electricity to sell to distribution utilities, electric cooperatives, retail electricity suppliers and at the spot market. The Philippine Power Industry is being governed by the Department of Energy (DOE) and regulated by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).
