  • The country targets a share of 35% of renewables in the power mix in 2030.
  • The updated NDC increased the GHG emissions reduction objective to 75% in 2030.
  • 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 4 GW of geothermal potential.
  • The share of coal in the power mix has increased by 23 points since 2010 to 57% in 2020.
  • Oil prices for gasoline and diesel surged in 2021.
  • Electricity prices are among the highest in Asea.
  • Households and services represent nearly half of the final energy consumption.
  • Rapid growth in energy demand is expected by 2040 (around 6%/year).
  • Five large offshore wind projects totalling 3.5 GW are planned.

  • 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 production of gas started in 2002 with the commissioning of the field of Malampaya; it was stable between 2011 and 2019 at around 4.5 bcm but has dropped by 30% in 2020 to 3.1 bcm due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The gas field supplies five power plants in Luzon: Ilijan, Sta. Rita, San Lorenzo, Avion, and San Gabriel.

  • 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 0.51 toe, including 760 kWh of electricity (2020). These levels are two times lower than the ASEAN average.

    Total energy consumption decreased by 8% in 2020 to 56 Mtoe. Previously, it had increased by 5.5%/year since 2009, reaching a 62 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.

The Philippines energy market data since 1990 and up to is included in the Excel file accompanying the Philippines country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
  • Demand indicators: Annual historical consumption per capita, consumption trends, total consumption, final consumption (per energy and per sector) and electricity consumption total and per sector.
  • Energy Balance: total and per energy.
  • Philippines Energy Prices: In addition to the analysis provided on the report we also provided a data set which includes historical details on the Philippines energy prices for the follow items: price of premium gasoline (taxes incl.), price of diesel (taxes incl.), price of electricity in industry (taxes incl.), price of electricity for households (taxes incl.), price of natural gas in industry (taxes incl.), prices of natural gas for households (taxes incl.), spot price of Brent and CO2 emissions (from fuel combustion).

The Philippines country report is complemented with a national power generation dashboard (excel file) from our Power Plant Tracker Service.

Data included in the excelsheet:
