Albay Energy Efficiency and Conservation Initiative

We are urging the law-makers of the Provincial Government of Albay to support the Ordinance Establishing an Energy Management Program in the Province of Albay to promote energy efficiency as a strategy towards sustainability, climate change mitigation, economic growth, and improved quality of life and environment.

The Philippine Government has long supported the promotion of Energy Efficiency and Conservation and remains one of the longest running initiatives in the country since the 70s. In launching of the National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program (NEECP), the government aims to make enercy efficiency and conservation a way of life for every Filipino by raising awareness, reducing the country's energy demand by 10%, and decreasing carbon dioxide emmission, among others.

The Republic Act (RA) No. 11285 or the Energy Efficiency and Conversation (EEC) Act likewise institutionalized energy efficiency and conservation through an improved Government Energy Management Program (GEMP) Guideline that encourages all government agencies to be at the forefront of energy efficiency and conservation.

Improving energy efficiency in the government institution means taking control over energy usage, mitigating fossil fuel use, and setting the standard for the Albayanos to follow.

More than supporting the citizen-led ordinance and taking into consideration of the new normal brought by COVID-19 pandemic, we are urging the Albayano lawmakers to take a stand and help secure the future generations of Albay by making energy efficiency and conservation a priority in the province!
