PIA Press Release

DOE wraps up IEC campaign on nat'l energy plan

Iloilo City (17 May) -- The Department of Energy (DOE) recently wrapped up a new round of a national Information, Education and Communication (IEC) campaign on the Philippine Energy Plan (2009-2030) and Nuclear Energy.

DOE Visayas Field Office Supervisor Engr. Rey Maleza said the IEC campaign sought to gather inputs and recommendations from all stakeholders in the energy sector in the country on how the PEP can be improved and enhanced in terms of policy thrusts, strategies and programs.

Maleza said they are conducting the IEC campaign every year and held one in Western Visayas early this year.

DOE said the PEP 2009-2030 is the energy sector's blueprint for energy development and security in the next 20 years and considers the option of putting up a nuclear power plant with due consideration to the environment and the welfare of the general public.

The plan, DOE said, deals with the future of energy development, which is very vital to the country's prosperity. Its overarching theme is ensuring the best energy choices for a better quality of life.

Among its component plans and programs are the exploration and development of conventional fuels (oil, gas and coal), development and adoption of renewable and alternative energy (biodiesel, compressed natural gas, auto-LPG and nuclear), promotion of responsible use of energy (National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program), ensuring developments in the power and electrification sectors (rural electrification), pursuing reforms in the power and downstream oil and gas industries, and climate change adaptation measures.

The pursuit of the country's energy program has been boosted, among others, by the passage of laws including the Biofuels Act of 2006 (Republic Act 9367) and Renewable Energy Act of 2008 (RA 9513).

These laws were conceived to harness alternative and indigenous energy sources and lessen the country's dependence on imported oil. (PIA 6) [top]
