The Philippines’ Department of Energy (DOE) has generated 1,966.93 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy capacity in the first auction round under the Green Auction Programme (GEAP), recording a success rate of 98.3%.

In a statement, the DOE said the generated capacities have been committed to delivering energy from 2023 to 2025 “at a competitive price that is lower than or equal to the Green Energy Auction Reserve prices set by the Energy Regulatory Commission.

It added that the resulting green energy tariff of the bidding will set the benchmark price of renewable energy to reflect the current electricity value.
