  • The country targets for 2030 a share of 35% of renewables in the power mix and a 75% reduction of its GHG emissions.
  • The Government is considering developing a nuclear program.
  • More than 90% of the electricity generation comes from IPPs. EDC is the world's largest geothermal company.
  • Nearly 40% of the oil retail market is dominated by Petron and Shell.
  • The country holds around 13 GW of exploitable hydro resources and 2.5 GW of geothermal potential.
  • The share of coal in the power mix has increased by 24 points since 2010, reaching 58% in 2021.
  • Prices of gasoline and diesel keep surging in 2022.
  • Electricity prices are among the highest in Asean and on the rise since 2020.
  • Households and services represent nearly half of the final energy consumption.
  • Very rapid growth in energy demand is expected by 2040 (around 6%/year).
  • LNG import contracts and infrastructure are expanding in anticipation of future gas demand growth and a coal power moratorium.
  • Very large-scale solar PV projects are ramping up to reach the 35% RE target by 2035.

  • 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


    A joint venture bringing together MEXP (Malampaya Energy XP)) (45%), UC Undenna (45%), and PNOC (10%) is operating the gas field of Malampaya, which was commissioned in 2001 (proven reserves of around 75 bcm; total cost of €4.6bn). A 20-year contract covers the gas supply to 3 power plants, with a total capacity of 2.7 GW, on the Batangas site.

  • Energy Supply


    Oil production is low and fluctuating downwards (0.45 Mt in 2021) and covers only 3% of oil demand.

    Crude oil imports have decreased significantly since 2018 with the closure of the Tabangao refinery (-23%/year) to 4 Mt in 2021. Previously, they increased rapidly between 2013 and 2018 (around 9%/year, up to 11.5 Mt).

  • Energy Prices


    In 2022, the average price of electricity was US$23.9c/kWh for households and had been increasing since 2020 (+17%/year). The price was over three times higher than in Malaysia and around 50% higher than in Thailand in 2021.


  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption is 0.54 toe, including 798 kWh of electricity (2021). These levels are two times lower than the ASEAN average (2020 levels).

    Total energy consumption increased by 4% in 2021 to 60.4 Mtoe, after decreasing by 5% in 2020. Previously, it had increased by 4.5%/year since 2009, reaching a 61 Mtoe peak in 2019.

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the Energy demand and supply outlook included in the PEP 2020-2040, final energy consumption will increase 3-fold by 2040 from 2020 (5.8%/year), driven by the transport and industry sectors.
