Message from the Chairman


With the worldwide conflict threatening oil supply and the continuing rise in oil prices, it is vital that the Philippines continue to develop its indigenous energy sources. In parallel there is growing support for the development of sustainable energy sources to protect the global environment and to reduce climate change.

In response to this challenge and to support the country’s ongoing economic development, the Philippines passed into law the Renewable Energy Act in 2008. The main objective of the Act is to accelerate the development of the country’s significant renewable energy resources. Furthermore, the Aquino administration is actively promoting public-private partnerships to fast track infrastructure projects, particularly those in the renewable energy sector.

In response to the government’s lead, PhilCarbon is focusing on the development of wind, geothermal and mini-hydro renewable energy sources and promoting energy efficiency.

To ensure effective implementation and operation of its projects PhilCarbon partners with foreign and other local companies to achieve the optimum blend of local and international experience.

Through its projects, PhilCarbon is contributing to enhanced Philippine energy security, supporting the country’s ongoing development and mitigating global climate change.
