Energy Efficiency and Conservation Roadmap

The Philippines has dedicated programmatic activities to advance energy effciency since 2004. Over the last decade there have been numerous energy effciency policy initiatives by the Government; while these initiatives have been consistent and complimentary, room to narrow gaps and improve implementation and monitoring exists.

The Philippines Energy Efficiency and Conservation Roadmap 2017 - 2040 provides a framework for building an energy-efficient nation and in making energy efficiency and conservation a way of life for all Filipinos. Energy efficiency will advance the country's economic development and help ensure energy security, optimal energy pricing and sustainable energy systems. The development of this Roadmap commenced with a review of the energy demand context of the Philippines and its current energy efficiency programs. This review considered the effectiveness of current programs, identified gaps and unrealized opportunities based on international best practice.

A first version of the Roadmap was completed in2014. However, it has been deemed essential to revise the roadmap in 2016 prior to publishing.This Roadmap is a consolidated national level document of policy instruments to enhance energy efficiency in the Philippines for the period 2017 to 2040. It integrates identified opportunities with existing energy efficiency policy instruments and strategies. The document also incorporatesthe priority goals of the current administration (2017-2022).

The first part of this document sets the background to the integration process and the development of the road map. Policy targets, opportunity, priority areas and further considerations are discussed.The second part of the document embarks on the road map with introductory statements of objectives and targets. This is followed by short, medium and long term strategies to achieve the stated objectives.

The successful attainment of the goals and targets set is highly dependent on the corresponding and complementing sector-based action plans, which will detail the approach of implementing the recommendations of the roadmap, including allocating roles and responsibilities and financial resources.
