The Department of Energy is reaching out to players in the energy industry and the consumers to aggressively promote energy efficiency.

“We endeavor to keep everyone abreast about the fast-evolving developments in the sector by highlighting governance and resiliency as important components of our policy directions on energy,” Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi explained.

The DOE’s Information, Education and Communication campaign for the Cordillera Region dubbed as “E-Power Mo” was held in Baguio City on April 24, 2018 at the Hotel Supreme Convention Plaza with the theme: “Communicating Efficiency Across the Energy Sector.”

“As the theme suggests, we seek to explain the various DOE programs and projects to impart to the Filipino energy consumers the importance of spreading efficiency across all the sectors of economy,” Cusi said.

The conference sought to address the specific energy efficiency strategies, regulations, and programs of the DOE for each sector of the industry, including the downstream oil and natural gas sector, the upstream sector, the renewable energy sector, the power sector, the alternative fuels and energy efficiency sector and the consumer sector.

For the downstream oil and natural gas sectors, the discussions included the development plans, the Philippine National Standards and the regulatory frameworks concerning the LPG and liquid fuels industry.

For the upstream sector, the conference focused not only on efficiency strategies but also on programs, contracting processes and guidelines about conventional energy such as petroleum and coal.

Likewise, the presentations revolved around efficiency in the Renewable Energy sector as part of empowering the electricity end-users to choose and manage their supply of electricity that impacts on their electricity bills.

The RE presentations were aimed at discussing the policies and guidelines that will enable the end-users to render an informed decision on the kind of electricity supply and services that meet their choices and requirements.
