The Philippines: Leader in Renewable Energy


First in Southeast Asia

     The Philippines has the first large-scale wind farm in Southeast Asia located in Bangui, Ilocos Norte.  The wind farm has been generating clean energy since 2005.

     In 2002, the Philippines was able to source out 36% of its energy requirements from renewable sources. The biggest contributor to this was geothermal energy (21%) followed by hydropower (15%). 

     The government has committed to double this to an impressive 72% by 2013.

     This leadership is attracting investors from all over Europe, America, Australia and Asia.
