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).
The major deposits of gas are concentrated within three main locations: Camago-Malampaya, the Cagayan Valley and Cebu.
The Philippines has moderate conventional energy resources. Crude oil reserves are estimated at 172 mbl, natural gas reserves at 56 bcm and coal reserves at 215 Mt (end of 2018). The country has an important geothermal potential estimated at 4 GW. Economically exploitable hydroelectric resources are estimated at 13 GW according to the DOE.
Since the adoption of the 1992 law, electricity prices have been more stable and are controlled by the "Energy Regulatory Commission" (ERC).
In 2019, the average price of electricity was US15.7c/kWh for households. This price is twice the level of Vietnam or Malaysia and 40% higher than in Thailand.

Per capita energy consumption is 0.57 toe, including 775 kWh of electricity (2018). These levels are two times lower than the ASEAN average.
Issues & Prospects
According to the Energy demand and supply outlook included in the PEP 2017-2040, final energy consumption will increase 4-fold by 2040 from 2017 (5.7%/year), driven by the transport and industry sectors.
