Preferential Dispatch of all Renewable Energy Plants in the WESM

This publication reports on the effects of preferential dispatch of all existing geothermal, biomass, and impounding hydroelectric power plants, in strengthening the Philippine's energy self-sufficiency. Findings show that preferential dispatch for all renewable energy (RE) will increase the use of indigenous RE resources, diversify the energy mix, and reduce market clearing prices in the spot market. The Preferential Dispatch report serves as evidence to the Department Circular No. DC2022-10-0031 of the Philippine Department of Energy. The report is authored by the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC)
