GPCCI Energy Roundtable | Department of Energy: Policy and Plans for 2020 and Beyond

GPCCI organized an energy roundtable luncheon with Department of Energy (DOE) Assistant Director Irma Exconde (representing Undersecretary Jesus Posadas). The event provided a forum for DOE to deliberate their plans and policies for the Philippine energy sector in the coming years.

Director Exconde’s presentation focused on providing an overview of their policy framework – under the National Economic and Development Authority’s Ambisyon Natin 2040, Dutertenomics “Build, Build, Build”, and the agency’s very own Philippine Energy Plan – which relays their strategic directions in the coming years. Her talk also focused on providing the Nine-Point Energy Agenda, breakdown of committed power projects, and regional power demand and supply snapshots with outlooks until the year 2040. She also presented the energy trilemma which focuses on three goals on how to achieve the energy sustainability in the Philippines.

The event ended with an open forum with participants sharing their views and recommendations on the current state of the country’s energy sector.
