Total Energy Consumption
Per capita energy consumption is 0.57 toe, including 775 kWh of electricity (2018). These levels are two times lower than the ASEAN average.
Total energy consumption has increased by 5.2%/year since 2009, reaching 60 Mtoe in 2018. Oil covers 33% of the country's energy needs, followed by coal and lignite in rapid progression (31% in 2018 up from 19% in 2010) and electricity (16%). Biomass represents 14% of total energy needs and natural gas 6%.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production is low and decreasing (0.6 Mt in 2018): it covers less than 3% of oil demand. Since 2013, crude oil imports have been increasing significantly (+8.6%/year on average) and amounted to 11.5 Mt in 2018.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
The Renewable energy roadmap 2017-2040 increased the renewables target of the National Renewable Energy Programme (NREP) of 2011: it aims to double the renewable capacity by 2030 and increase capacity to at least 20 GW by 2040. In the short-term, it plans to publish a revised NREP that will cover actions until 2040 and set an objective in terms of share in the power mix (instead of a capacity target).
According to the PEP, primary energy supply from renewables (including hydro) should double by 2040.
The DOE plans to implement three new key renewable energy policies.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
Philippines ratified the Paris Agreement in March 2017; in its INDC to COP21, the country aims to reduce GHG emissions by about 70% in 2030 relative to a BAU scenario. The mitigation contribution is conditioned by the extent of financial resources, including technology development and transfer, and capacity building, that will be made available to the country. In 2016, the new President has announced that his government will not uphold this emissions pledge and will instead continue to use industrialization to drive economic growth.
