Cheapest, fastest energy resource waits to be tapped

Ponder upon this—if the Philippines found a climate-friendly way of generating and distributing 45,900 megawatts at a cost lower than those of renewables, coal-fired plants or natural gas-fed plants, shouldn’t the country grab this opportunity?

Or, this—if the country found another “Malampaya-like” field with no less than 182 million tons of oil equivalent of indigenously sourced energy through 2040, shouldn’t the country mine this and use it to avoid imported oil, coal and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions?
