Philippines targets 20,000 MW of additional capacity from renewable energy

The Philippines aims to add at least 20,000 megawatts (MW) in additional capacity from renewable energy by 2040 to support economic growth, Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said Friday.

Cusi made the statement during the launch of the Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) by the Department of Energy and International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in Taguig City.
“RRA is a collaboration among the DOE, IRENA and other renewable energy stakeholders from both the public and private sectors. It is vital to our vision of attaining 20,000 megawatts of renewable energy capacities by 2040,” Cusi said.
Cusi noted the goal is "to provide a comprehensive and detailed analyses of the country’s renewable energy profile in order to recommend measures to deal with the pertinent issues in the industry."
IRENA is an intergovernmental organization that supports countries transition into a sustainable energy future.
“The DOE is committed to provide a level of playing field among RE developers to assure the country of its indigenous and sustainable energy for the consuming public,” Cusi said. — VDS, GMA News
