Benefit from up to 2 000 up-to-date data series for 186 countries in Global Energy & CO2 data

A data overview is available in the global energy statistics app

Total 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.

Oil covers 33% of the country's energy needs, followed by coal and lignite in rapid progression (31% in 2019 up from 19% in 2010) and renewable electricity (16%). Biomass represents 13% of total energy needs and natural gas 6%.

Crude Oil Production

Oil production is low and fluctuating downwards with 0.7 Mt in 2019: it covers 3.5% of oil demand. Between 2013 and 2018, crude oil imports increased significantly (+8.6%/year on average, up to 11.5 Mt) before decreasing by 30% in 2019 to 8.5 Mt.

The refining capacity will be reduced to 180 kb/d with only the Limay refinery complex left after Shell decided to permanently close its 110 kb/d Tabangao site in August 2020.

Renewable in % Electricity Production

The Renewable energy roadmap 2017-2040 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.

Three new key renewable policies and measures are being implemented by the DOE.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

Philippines ratified the Paris Agreement in 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.
