  • The country aims to double the renewable capacity by 2030 and to reduce its energy intensity by 3% per year over 2005-2040.
  • The adoption of a new nuclear programme is being studied.
  • More than 90% of the electricity generation comes from private companies.
  • Oil production is very low and decreasing, while gas production is stable.
  • Electricity production is increasing rapidly (6.5%/year since 2014). Coal dominates the power mix (55% in 2019).
  • Electricity prices are among the highest in Asean.
  • Energy consumption is growing rapidly. The share of coal and lignite in total consumption continues to expand to face the country's needs.
  • Rapid growth in energy demand is expected by 2040 (5%/year).
  • The country decided to no longer build coal power plants beyond the projects already approved.
  • Many LNG terminals have been planned as the gas demand is expected to increase quickly.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Department of Energy (DOE) is in charge of the energy sector. The DOE has six bureaus: Energy Policy and Planning Bureau (EPPB), Energy Resources Development Bureau (ERDB), Electric Power Industry Management Bureau (EPIMB), Oil Industry Management Bureau (OIMB), Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB), and Energy Utilization and Management Bureau (EUMB).

  • Energy Companies


    The major deposits of gas are concentrated within three main locations: Camago-Malampaya, the Cagayan Valley and Cebu.

  • Energy Supply


    The Philippines has moderate conventional energy resources. Crude oil reserves are estimated at 172 mbl, natural gas reserves at 53 bcm and coal reserves at 215 Mt (end of 2019). The country has an important geothermal potential estimated at 4 GW. Economically exploitable hydroelectric resources are estimated at 13 GW according to the DOE.

  • Energy Prices


    Within the framework of the law on the downstream oil sector, the prices of oil products are now free, with the exception of products considered to be "socially" sensitive, like kerosene.

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption is 0.57 toe, including 810 kWh of electricity (2019). These levels are two times lower than the ASEAN average.

    Total energy consumption has increased by 5.5%/year since 2009, reaching 62 Mtoe in 2019.

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the Energy demand and supply outlook included in the PEP 2018-2040, final energy consumption will increase 3-fold by 2040 from 2018 (around 5%/year), driven by the transport and industry sectors.
