Philippine DOE assisting Maibarara Project to be implemented
May 21, 2010
In news from the Philippines, it is said that by “bidding to spur the speedy development of one of the country’s geothermal prospects, the Department of Energy (DOE) has assured that it will ensure that the 20-megawatt (MW) Maibarara geothermal power project will be implemented as scheduled.
“Energy security is a critical issue and it is one that hounds the country, particularly the Mindanao region, for decades. It is fitting then that on the heels of the perceived issues in energy security, we have the Maibarara Geothermal Power Project which will add 20-mW to the Luzon Grid by 2013,” Acting Energy Secretary Jose Ibazeta said in his keynote address during the joint-venture signing.
