Energy group confident Palace will sign efficiency measure

THE Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance, Inc. (PE2) said the proposed energy efficiency and conservation law, as cleared by Congress, has narrowed the “positional gaps” between the government and the private sector, including their stand on fiscal incentives.

PE2 President Alexander Ablaza said his group believes the draft law, which reconciles Senate Bill 1531 and House Bill 8629, is well-placed for approval by the President.

“Both sides contributed largely to consensual draft law,” he said in a statement.
