Financing and Integrating Renewable Energy for the City of Butuan
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
The Philippine government is seeking to increase the proportion of renewable energies and use them to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The project supports these goals by further developing the financing and integration of renewable energies in the city of Butuan. Various urban stakeholders are working together in a Planning Group for Energy Development (PDP) with the aim of developing an inclusive, cost-effective and sustainable energy solution. A master plan for urban energy development ensures that domestic, renewable resources are used in line with the development goals, and to achieve this, the stakeholders complete a workshop series on various aspects relevant to planning in the energy sector. Armed with this newly-acquired knowledge, they can then technically and financially evaluate the proposals for energy development. The project also develops and disseminates a financing product that contributes to the implementation of the master plan. /
