Last December, the Philippines served as the voice of change in the global arena. Joining over 200 world leaders in Paris, our nation signed a historic pact to protect the planet from the catastrophic effects of global warming.
While we account for only 0.3% of the greenhouse emission worldwide, we have answered the international call to further reduce the world’s carbon footprint by as much as 70% to keep global temperatures from rising above 1.50 degrees by the end of the century.
Today, we have successfully attained the ONE GIGAWATT (1GW) target capacity of SOLAR POWER. Together, our goal of building additional 3GW in the next six years is within reach. What is required is a solid partnership between government and industry that defines the steps ahead and clears the path towards tomorrow’s cleaner future.
THE PHILIPPINE SOLAR SUMMIT AND EXHIBITION 2016: “Cooling the Earth with Solar” provides such platform. It creates the venue for companies to showcase the latest technologies and innovative solutions that enable rooftop and utility-scale solar to be more competitive. Under the Summit’s umbrella, the newly-appointed officials - led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi – as well as business leaders, will converge in September to dialogue how change can happen and redefine the way we produce and consume energy in our homes and workplaces.
Your participation to this event is a testament of your support and commitment to the worldwide movement to shift to renewable energy. Join us at the SMX Convention Center, Mall Of Asia, Pasay City on August 31 to September 2.
