Upgrading Energy Regulations for the Energy Regulatory Commission of the Philippines (ERC) and Design

ETP supports ERC in assessing the regulatory options to pursue a low carbon energy system from the upstream, and thus sets the leading parameters for investments and competencies required for the transition. ETP provides technical advice and expertise to ERC in the areas of renewable energy supply, grids and battery energy storage, energy efficiency and demand management.
