Philippines – L. C. Fernandez “The role that women will play in the energy transition is vital and could become a key driving force”
A challenging and historical year has passed, as people persevered and embraced the changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. ASEAN Climate Change and Energy Project (ACCEPT) is not an exception. We struggled to cope and adapt, optimizing online events, and collaborative efforts to advance our work on pursuing climate-friendly energy development in the region.
In the Philippines like the rest of the ASEAN, energy policy is at the crossroads. To support the economic and infrastructure plans, the country will need to double its power generating capacities over the next several years.
