/ 07:58 AM December 01, 2023

MANILA -Ayala-led ACEN Corp. will secure a fresh P20-billion loan to finance its renewable energy expansion plans across its domestic and international markets.

ACEN, the listed energy platform of the Ayala group, did not disclose any other details about the loan, but told reporters that the full amount would come from only one bank.

According to the company, the 10-year term loan will also be used for “general corporate purposes.”


ACEN is aggressively conducting fundraising activities in the past months as it races to meet its goal of increasing its renewable energy capacity from the current 4.4 gigawatts (GW) to 20 GW by the end of the decade.

A total of 1.7 GW is found locally through ACEN’s solar and wind assets. It aims to increase this capacity to 8 GW by 2030.

Aside from the Philippines, it also has businesses in Australia, India, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Earlier this year, ACEN tapped an P8-billion loan from China Banking Corp. and Japan-based Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.
