Energy resiliency policy to help in rebuilding Marawi City – DOE

 

The Department of Energy (DOE) is speeding up the issuance of its proposed energy resiliency policy which will help in the restoration and rehabilitation efforts of energy facilities in Marawi City after a five-month long military operation in the area.

“With this policy, we are building with the industry players a structure on how to plan and address human-induced disasters that compromise existing power facilities,” said Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

The DoE’s proposed policy seeks to strengthen the existing energy infrastructure and systems, institutionalize the “build back better” principle, improve existing disaster resilience operations, and develop resiliency practices, systems and standards.

“The issuance of this policy will cement the DOE’s commitment to mainstream disaster risk reduction to increase the reliability of our energy systems and reduce their vulnerability to disasters,” Cusi said
