Metro Manila, Philippines - Another landmark law (together with RA 9513) for the renewable energy sector was passed last April 2019. The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act (RA 11285) aims to standardize energy efficiency and conservation measures on the use of energy efficient technologies in buildings and include energy conserving designs on buildings in the issuance of building permits.
Under Section 18, new buildings and those that will undergo renovations must comply with energy-conserving design. This includes sourcing at least one percent of the total power demand from renewable sources, such as solar energy. Designated Establishments are initially classified as follows:
Type 1 - annual energy consumptions of 500,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) to 4,000,000 kWh
Type 2 - annual energy consumptions of more than 4,000,000 kWh
Other - annual energy consumption of at least 100,000 kWh but less than 500,000 kWh
Designated establishments from the commercial, industrial, and transport sectors are required to submit their Annual Energy Efficiency and Conservation Reports (AEECR) to the DOE every 15th of April.
“Work is being undertaken and is now required under this law that new and existing buildings used for commercial and industrial use as well as the retrofit of the existing buildings would have to meet the energy conserving design for buildings,” Patrick T. Aquino, director of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Energy Utilization Management Bureau (EUMB), said. [source]
