Paris Manila Technology Corporation (PAMATEC) is a French-Filipino corporation founded in 1988 by Hubert d’Aboville, a French national.
The President of Pamatec loves and believes that the rural electrification in the Philippines is critical and very important.
Pamatec geared towards renewable energy way back in 2003 when Mr. conceptualized a rural electrification project for the poor communities of Masbate province which won the approval of the French government to provide an ODA (soft-loan) to the Philippine government. Worth EUR 17.5 million, the PRES project was completed in late 2009, electrifying 18,000 households in 128 villages, of which 30% were equipped with solar energy while the rest were electrified at the minimum cost using mini-grids powered by 153 diesel gensets.
There are still 10 million people in the Philippines without power, which is a situation Pamatec is eager to change. Bringing light, education and power is an important step to ensuring that rural communities can progress and grow- it is not feasible for the whole Filipino populace to migrate to urban areas. Connecting communities to television, the internet and other modern appliances is essential to let these communities step forward and improve their lives.
