TAGUIG CITY, 10 January 2020 – The Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2) offered earlier today its support to the Department of Energy (DOE) and the British Embassy as they plan donor coordination activities related to policy support and promotion of sustainable energy in the Philippines. The PE2 offer was expressed by PE2 president Alexander Ablaza during a meeting held today at the DOE office.

The DOE team was led by Director Patrick T. Aquino of the Energy Utilization and Management Bureau (EUMB). Other DOE bureaus, such as the Energy Policy and Planning Bureau (EPPB), Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB) and the Electric Power Industry and Management Bureau (EPIMB) were represented during the meeting.

The British Embassy was represented by Kathleen Anne Capiroso-Coballes, Climate & Energy Attaché, and Josephine Orense, who manages the local activities of the UK Prosperity Fund Programme. Laurie Navarro of the UK ASEAN Low Carbon Energy Programme (LCEP) participated in the meeting too.

Ablaza said, “In the area of energy efficiency, we support the DOE and the donor community in implementing barrier removal and market enabling activities with the shared goal of accelerating the transformation of the energy efficiency market. As a civil society organization, PE2 stands ready to partner with an international development agency and to serve as a channel of development resources in pursuit of a more energy-efficient economy in the decades to come.”

The meeting participants discussed plans for a Donors’ Forum on Sustainable Energy, intended to coordinate country-level sustainable energy programs and initiatives across various international development agencies and multilateral development banks.
