January 22, 2021

Business Mirror:

THE Philippines is ready to run the race toward the transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy production and distribution, with experts and industry stakeholders agreeing that there must be a decent mix of renewables and other energy sources to meet the needs of Filipinos and electrify millions more households in the future.

Department of Energy (DOE) Undersecretary Jesus Cristino Posadas said his group is strongly pushing for the development of renewable energy (RE) sources and low- and no-carbon sources like natural gas, hydrogen and nuclear to create a cleaner, more sustainable future for the Philippines. 

According to the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, shifting to renewable energy will help provide power to as many as 50 million people, especially in remote areas.
