PIA Press Release

Davao City barangay captains to receive CFLs

by JMD Abangan

Davao City (21 October) -- Some 100 barangay captains in Davao City will be receiving today (Wednesday) compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) as they join a nationwide advocacy on climate change.

The distribution of CFLs to the barangay captains will form part of the Public Consultation on Clean Development Mechanism and Climate Change which will be held at the Grand Men Seng Hotel.

The event is an initiative of the Energy Utilization Bureau of the Department of Energy (DOE) in cooperation with the Philippine Information Agency (PIA).

Part of the consultation is a discussion on the relevance using CFLs which have been found to have more benefits than the classic light bulbs.

CFLs are known to have lower power consumption of up 80% and much longer lifetime of up to 5 to 15 times than the classic light bulbs.

Aside from receiving CFLs, participating barangay captains will get to know more about the clean development mechanism through the speech of Kenjiro Suzuki, clean development specialist of the Sustainable Infrastructure Division of the Asian Development Bank.

DOE Energy Efficiency and Conservation Division Supervising Science Research Specialist Artemio Habitan will be talking about the relevance of CFL distribution.

DOE Energy Efficiency and Conservation Division Chief Science Research Specialist Jesus Anunciacion will also grace the consultation.

The national government has intensified its campaign on climate change now that effects of such phenomenon are being felt worldwide.

On top of other issues, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will again bring climate change concerns during the 15th Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and Related Summits at the seaside resorts of Cha-am and Hua Hin in Thailand from Oct. 23 to 25. (PIA) [top]
