Total 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.

Crude Oil Production
Oil production is low and fluctuating downwards with 0.6 Mt in 2020: it covers 4% 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) and again by 54% in 2020 to 4.6 Mt.
The refining capacity has been reduced to 180 kb/d with only the Limay refinery complex left after Shell permanently closed its 110 kb/d Tabangao site in 2020.

Renewable in % Electricity Production
The Renewable energy roadmap 2020-2040 aims to reach 35% of renewables in the power mix by 2030, and 50% by 2040 under a Clean Energy Scenario (CES) (35% in a Reference Scenario (REF). To achieve this target, the country will need PHP 25.3bn (US$490m) of green investments for pre-developments under the CES scenario and PHP 17.9bn (US$347m) under the REF scenario.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
Philippines released its INDC in 2015, with a 70% GHG reduction target in 2030, relative to a BAU scenario, and ratified the Paris Agreement in 2017. In 2021, the country submitted its NDC, which now aims to reduce emissions by around 75% in 2030, relative to a BAU scenario (of which 2.7% unconditional and 72.3% conditional). 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.
