DOE challenges developers to scale non-FIT solar

DOE acting undersecretary Mario Marasigan said that single projects of 50 to 100 MW would not be enough to compensate for the country's increasing baseload capacities, asking solar developers to present a more convincing business model for their proposed 100% renewable energy (RE) platform.

Marasigan, a major advocate for RE said that he is realistic about the fact that power systems still need diversified portfolio of energy technologies.
