Roll out crucial energy projs to move faster now, says Cusi
by DOE release

Energy Sec. Alfonso G. Cusi said that important energy projects will now move faster following the issuance of the implementing rules and regulations of Executive Order 30 that created the Energy Investment Coordinating Council (EICC).

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signed EO 30 in June last year creating the EICC to streamline the regulatory procedures affecting energy projects of national importance.

“With the IRR in place, stakeholders can now expect the prompt delivery of basic energy services to our people with the realization of vital energy infrastructures, while providing additional economic investments for us to truly compete globally,” Cusi said.

Cusi said the IRR marks the end of slow-moving energy projects that are impeding the economic development in the country because they are hampered to a large extent by the rigid regulatory processes.

The Department of Energy issued the IRR on April 25 through Department Circular DC2018-04-0013 to put into operation EO 30.

Under the IRR, the processing of permits and licenses shall be within 30 days for projects declared as Energy Projects of National Significance (EPNS).

The IRR outlines the scope of EPNS and the general framework for the processing of the EPNS applications.

The 30-day deadline starts from the submission of the complete documentary requirements to the relevant agencies involved in the permitting process.

It likewise highlights the application of the principle of presumption of prior approvals. This means that a holder of the “EPNS Certificate” is presumed to have already complied with the requirements and permits from other government permitting agencies.

The IRR is consistent with the mandate of the EICC to establish a simplified approval process and harmonize the relevant rules and regulations of all government agencies involved in obtaining permits and regulatory approvals to expedite the development and implementation not only of EPNS but  other energy projects as well.
