Renewable Energy Programme for the Agri-Fishery Sector

In 2021, the Philippine Departments of Energy and Agriculture announced a new Renewable Energy Programme for the Agri-Fishery Sector. The programme supports the use of renewables to power agricultural and fishery operations such as drying and other heat-based applications, to electrify farm production and processing facilities and machinery, to fuel engines used in irrigation, and to mechanise farm operations. The programme also aims to develop new renewable technologies and human resources specialising in renewables; to develop and enforce new standards for renewables; and to provide technical support for suppliers and manufacturers of locally produced renewable energy equipment and components.
