UP SEP Power Sector Database

The UP SEP Power Sector Database shows the electricity prices for the residential consumers within the Philippines from 2012-2016. The values were obtained from kuryente.org.ph and were compiled into six (6) tabs. The tabs and their corresponding descriptions are listed below:

a) DU Profile – this consists of the Electric Company (DU) and its corresponding Name, DU Type, ON/OFF Grid status, Region, Address and Contact Number.


UP Sustainable Energy Program Midyear Meeting

The UP SEP Mid-year meeting was held for the whole day on September 28, 2016 at the GT-Toyota Asian Center, University of the Philippines Diliman. It focused on the updates on the general activities, the current research projects, as well as a brainstorming session regarding the to-be published SEP policy journal.


SET on Power, Transportation and Storage

There were three talks for the day. The first was an overview of the electric vehicle technologies by Prof. Chekov Castillo of the UP Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute – Power Electronics Lab, followed by a discussion on electric vehicles’ carbon footprint in the US by Dr. Mili-Ann M. Tamayao, project head of the SEP, and lastly, a talk by Ms. Yvonne Castro, Vice President of the private company BEMAC which specializes in electric vehicles in the Philippines.


Pilot Energy Audit for U.P.-Diliman

This work aims to determine the baseline energy consumption patterns of the U.P.-Diliman campus with eye toward identifying conservation and efficiency opportunities and their corresponding sustainability impacts. The pilot phase involves designing of methods and materials for performing an energy audit that will be used for a full energy audit in UP-Diliman and other system campuses. Results from this study will be published in a reputable journal and will be used as input for a campus sustainable energy system.


Life Cycle Benefit-Cost Analysis of Wind Energy in the Philippines

This study aims to provide a quantitative basis for policy recommendations on wind energy adoption in the power generation sector of the Philippines through a life cycle cost-benefit analysis. Costs and benefits (in PhP) are estimated for the three sustainability aspects of environment (CO2 emissions), society (health impacts), and economy (energy cost) from 2015-2030.
