DOST signs 35 new R&D projects, turns over fast charging tech to mall operator

The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) said it has recently signed 35 new research and development (R&D) projects.

The DOST-PCIEERD said project leaders and representatives from 35 implementing agencies came together to formalize their commitment to driving progress through science, technology, and innovation. This collective showcases the country’s dedication to advancing industry, energy, and emerging technology sectors, the agency said.

DOST-PCIEERD executive director Enrico C. Paringit lUDED the new project leaders for taking on the challenge of making an impact in the country through science and technology.

“We applaud our Filipino researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and their teams for conceptualizing these groundbreaking initiatives,” Paringit said.

Furthermore, DOST-PCIEERD kicked off the annual “Innovate Pinas” event, where 72 completed projects in 2023 will be presented.   

The council also turned over the Charging in Minutes, or CharM, e-Charger to Megaworld. This groundbreaking charging technology was developed by a team of researchers from the University of the Philippines, Diliman.

CharM e-Charger revolutionizes charging times by reducing them from six hours to 30 minutes. This innovative solution ensures user safety and vehicle reliability during charging processes, marking a step towards sustainability and environmental consciousness in the transport industry. 

“With this momentous turnover of CharM e-chargers to Megaworld, we take another significant stride toward ensuring sustainability and environmental consciousness, particularly in the transport industry in the country,” Paringit said.
