Sagada hosts forum on energy technologies, alternative fuels
by PIA–Ifugao

SAGADA, Mountain Province – The Department of Energy in partnership with the Philippine Information Agency-Cordillera conducted an information campaign on alternative fuels and energy technologies last Nov. 7 in this town.

More than 150 participants from various sectors attended the activity that aimed to create greater awareness and appreciation of the importance of cleaner alternative fuels, energy technologies, and efficient use of energy.

DOE Senior Science Research Specialist Roselle Ibuna discussed alternative fuels and energy technologies, such as the use of auto-liquefied petroleum gas in public utility vehicles and promotion of electric vehicles.

These alternatives are intended to address concerns about fossil fuels, she said.

Fuel diversification using LPG as a clean alternative fuel will help address air pollution caused by vehicle emission.

Ibuna said a grant called Japan Non-Project Grant Aid (NPGA) for the Introduction of Japanese Advanced Products and its System (Next-Generation Vehicles Package) promote environment-friendly and fuel efficient vehicles.

“The goal is to enhance energy supply security in the transport sector through fuel diversification with the use of new technology vehicles using cleaner alternative fuels for transport,” Ibuna added.

Simon Leonor, also of DOE, presented the proposal for the adoption of E-trikes initiated by the Philippine government to help enhance the country’s energy security through fuel diversification and to insulate stakeholders from the price volatility of imported petroleum products. This will also reduce the transport sector’s annual petroleum consumption and carbon dioxide footprint in the tricycle transport sector.

“Other benefits include job generation; healthy, safety and comfort; reduce dependency on fossil fuels; transformed public mass transport to green and efficient vehicles and help in tourism,” Leonor said.

DOE Supervising Senior Science Research Specialist Federico Domingo discussed the  potentials of  innovation and emerging technologies in the Philippine Energy sector including its applications like energy resource diversification; generation, conversion and storage; industry, commercial and residential energy use; and next generation transportation technologies.
