The Philippines energy future and low-carbon development strategies

By Md. Hossain Alam Mondal and Alam Mondal


This paper presents an assessment of alternative, long-term energy supply and low-carbon strategies for the Philippine power sector from 2014 to 2040 using TIMES model. It examines the potential contribution of renewable energy to diversify the Philippine energy supply-mix to meet future electricity demands. The reference scenario compares the impact of four alternative policy goals: (1) carbon tax, (2) targeted renewable-based power generation, (3) limited coal share in supply-mix, and (4) renewables subsidy.IFPRI3; ISI; CRP2; CRP5; CRP7; 1 Fostering Climate-Resilient and Sustainable Food Supply; Phil-EWFEPTD; DSGD; PIMPRCGIAR Research Programs on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM); CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE); CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS
