TAGUIG CITY, OCt. 8 — The Department of Energy (DOE) is setting its sights on present energy investment opportunities in Mindanao that will spark new developments and growth in the region.

In this regard, the DOE, through its Investment Promotion Office, is launching the Mindanao Energy Investment Forum (MEIF) to be held on 11 October 2018 at the Grand Regal Hotel in Davao.

The forum aims to present opportunities and updates on energy developments, which include the one-grid interconnection project and the establishment of additional power capacities in the area.

With the theme “Transcending Investments: Role in Encouraging Investors in the Energy Sector,” this year’s energy investment forum series seeks to match investors with possible energy projects in Mindanao.

The DOE will bridge investors with financing facilities available for energy projects, concerned government institutions and the business sector for knowledge sharing on the industry’s best practices in the region.

The 2018 MEIF will also have a panel discussion that will cover topics on the government agencies’ roles, and the current policies and programs in facilitating and ensuring the smooth implementation of energy projects in Mindanao.

For a better business sector engagement, the invited 2018 MEIF participants include the existing and potential energy investors in Mindanao, Energy Associations, Government Agencies, Chambers of Commerce, Financing Facilities, Electric Cooperatives and Local Government Units.

“The DOE is holding all these in order to empower you, the energy stakeholders, for better coordination and collaboration. Together, we can make a bigger impact in creating wealth for our nation,” Sec. Cusi stated.
