●Power grids struggling on renewable energy purchase rule in China

Interfax-China reported that the regulation that currently requires Chinese power grid companies to purchase all of the electricity generated by renewable energy projects is unrealistic and is proving difficult to meet. As such, the central government is considering a draft amendment to China's Renewable Energy Law that, if accepted, would set a minimum target for the amount of electricity that power grid companies must buy from renewable energy projects.

●'Malampaya case affects other oil fields, Spratlys claim'

Limiting Palawan’s jurisdiction isn’t just about who gets control of US$10 biilion in revenues The position of the national government that the Malampaya natural gas project is outside the territory of Palawan province has implications more far-reaching than cornering the entire US$8.1 billion to $10 billion expected revenues from the reservoir, experts say. Should the court decide in favor of Malacanang, Palawan will lose its entitlement to multi-billion-dollar earnings not just from Malampaya but from 2 other commercially viable oil fields in its waters, Galoc and Nido-Matinloc.
