Emerging grassroots-led clean energy solutions to expand electricity access in underserved communities
Despite the enactment of the Renewable Energy Act in 2008, the Philippines has seen a slow uptake of renewable energy as the government faces the challenge of meeting the increasing energy demand from a growing population and economy.
However, over the past years, community-based and grassroots renewable energy-related initiatives have emerged across the country through the efforts of non-governmental organizations, start-ups, people’s organizations, and small and medium enterprises.
These initiatives took the center stage during the 14th episode of The Climate Reality Project Philippines’ Klimatotohanan webcast series entitled “Power to the People! Community-Led Renewable Energy Initiatives in the Philippines.”
