Energy efficiency law seen dampening power plant demand

THE ENERGY SECTOR will play a big role in implementing the proposed energy efficiency and conservation law as about half of the thousands of megawatts that can be displaced with the adoption of the legislation will come from power facilities, an official of an industry organization said.

Alexander Ablaza, president of the Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance, Inc. (PE2), said 45,900 megawatts (MW) are waiting to gathered through energy efficiency initiatives, of which about 23,000 MW are currently accounted for by power facilities.

Industry Banks on Energy Efficiency Law to Unlock Investments

MEMBERS of the Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance, Inc. (PE2) need to plan their staffing and capital resources based on how the proposed energy efficiency law would be able to “catalyze” investments in both the private and public sectors, the group’s top official said.

“Some of these players will have to broaden access to newer technologies, staff capacity development resources, and even to project or operating capital from either debt or equity sources,” said PE2 President Alexander Ablaza in a response to questions via e-mail.

The Congress has been trying to pass an energy efficiency and conservation measure since the idea was brought up in the 8th Congress in 1988 but to no avail, leaving the Philippines the only ASEAN country which does not have a law encouraging the efficient utilization of energy while providing tax incentives for energy-efficient projects until now.

Bicam OKs Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act

MANILA -- The Bicameral Conference Committee has approved the reconciled Senate and House of Representatives' versions of a measure institutionalizing a framework to advance energy efficiency and conservation practices in the country.

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian said the approval of the reconciled version of Senate Bill (SB)1531 and House Bill 8629, known as the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act, is quite timely, especially at a time when the Philippines is experiencing sustained economic growth in the past few years.
