The Independent Electricity Market Operator of the Philippines (IEMOP), operator of the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM), announced that it is preparing market participants for the official launch of the Mindanao WESM on January 26, 2023.

Energy Secretary Raphael Lotilla signed the Department of Energy Circular 2022-12-0039 in December 2022, requiring Mindanao electric power industry participants and entities to register as WESM members.

As part of the preparations for the commercial launch of WESM Mindanao, IEMOP hosted a Focus Group Discussion(FGD) in collaboration with various energy industry agencies. IEMOP discusses the provisions of DOE Circular 2022-12-0039 and the activities leading up to WESM’s commercial operations in the region.

The commercial operation of WESM Mindanao and the MVIP [Mindanao Visayas Interconnection Project] is expected to improve the reliability of electric power supply not only in the Mindanao grid but also in the Luzon and Visayas grids,” according to the circular. It also stated that the commercial operation of the MVIP would require the commercial operations of WESM Mindanao to allow for the efficient transfer of electricity exchanges.

The circular also requires the market operator to facilitate WESM registration and authorize the disconnection of WESM participants and entities that are required to register but are unable to do so.

The critical roles of different agencies such as IEMOP, National Electrification Administration (NEA), Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM), Philippine Electricity Market Corp. (PEMC), and National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) were also discussed in the circular.

Among the roles played by various agencies were:

The IEMOP should also ensure that WESM Mindanao participants comply with the registration requirements and take appropriate action to address noncompliance. They should also ensure that the WESM Mindanao transitions and operates smoothly.

The PEMC will monitor and evaluate the WESM Mindanao implementation and make recommendations to address any policy issues that may arise. It will also impose sanctions and penalties following the circular’s provisions.

The NEA will assist electric cooperatives (ECs) in completing their WESM registration and coordinate with relevant agencies to ensure that the ECs meet the financial and technical requirements for WESM registration.

Exist Software Labs Inc and Informatica Pocket Session: Realizing Data Governance Benefits in a Cloud-Hybrid World

Exist Software Labs Inc and Informatica Pocket Session: Realizing Data Governance Benefits in a Cloud-Hybrid World

On September 15, Exist Software Labs, in a joint effort with Informatica, gathered various market leaders from various verticals to conduct another pocket session on Data Governance and its benefits in a Cloud-Hybrid World.

Jon Teo, Data Governance and Privacy Expert at APJ spoke at the event about the benefits of Data Governance. He demonstrates how Data Governance helped various industries such as healthcare, automotive, insurance, manufacturing, power, and others around the world by leveraging its risk and compliance to protect the enterprise, as well as data intelligence that unlocks more value and data opportunity for businesses.

According to him, rapid cloud adaptation and a hybrid ecosystem generate more volume from more sources, making it difficult to discover, manage, and control data, requiring the urgent need for an agile data governance approach.

Kingsley Dsouza, a Technical Data Governance Privacy Domain Expert, was one of the speakers who also demonstrated Informatica’s Data Governance services. According to him, “Data Governance platform helps users in finding information that will assist them in solving their day-to-day business problems, which most organizations struggle with and take a long time to process.”

It’s no secret that the Asia-Pacific region lags behind the rest of the world in data management, with less than 50% of organizations having standardized data management capabilities. As the amount of data generated in the region continues to grow at an exponential rate, organizations are scrambling to find effective ways to manage and store all of this information, which is where the agile data governance approach comes into play.
