Philippines’ DOE plans 5,501 MW power capacity addition

Philippine’s Department of Energy (DOE) is planning to add 5,501 MW of power capacity into the country’s electricity supply in the next five years.

In the ongoing review of the Philippine Energy Plan, it has been cast that the greenfield capacity was earlier expected to be commissioned in 2020 is 2,991 MW. However, since most project implementations are being stalled by the health crisis, it is seen that the concretisation of these ventures will be moved to a later date. In the succeeding years, the additional capacities being set on blueprints are 891 MW in 2021; 287 MW in 2022; 290 MW in 2023; 600 MW in 2024; and 442 MW in 2025.
