With the Philippines’ growing population and continued industrialization, the Department of Energy (DoE) has forecast the country’s demand for electricity in 2040 to reach over 40,000 megawatts (MW), which far exceeds the existing dependable capacity of 22,736 MW. The Philippine Energy plan targets to increase installed renewable capacity to 20,000 MW by 2040, to help achieve the goal of reliable energy for all in the Philippines.
This landscape, together with the government’s initiatives, present the rise of new opportunities in the Philippines’ energy sector. To showcase possibilities in the industry, the Future Energy Show Philippines, co-located live online with the Future Energy Show Vietnam, will gather the energy sector ecosystem in the region to discuss industry strategies, trends, and key innovations to help local energy stakeholders in their work to achieve the growth of renewable energy.
On the morning of 16 November (10:00 PHT), Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, Chairman – Committee on Energy, will share his Guest-of-Honor Address on “Energy Policy & Development in the Philippines” and outline his vision for the future of energy policy in the Philippines.
