Energy efficiency sector wants to be classed as infrastructure

THE PHILIPPINES should start viewing energy efficiency as a new infrastructure asset class that the government can use as an added resource in planning its energy mix, or the ideal combination of resources to support its power requirements.

“We’re not looking at a figure yet. We want to see how — any energy market, whether the Philippines or otherwise — can quantify targets. So that is still a work in progress. Even the US is struggling, even Japan is struggling,” said Alexander Ablaza, president of the Philippine Energy Efficiency Alliance (PE2), in a chance interview.
