In an interview on Radyo Agila’s Breakfast on Board last February 19, ICSC energy transition advisor Alberto Dalusung III talked about the urgent need for the country to move away from coal and transition to more renewable energy sources, leading to more affordable, reliable, and secure power.

Ang kailangan natin gawin ay palakihin ang share ng renewables [sa ating energy mix]. Hindi ito madaling gawin, kaya kailangan na ang ating mga polisiya ay klaro para ang mga programa [sa energy transition] ay matutukan (We need to increase the share of renewables in our energy mix. It is not easy to do, which is why we need concise policies for our energy transition programs to be prioritized),” he said.

Dalusung added, “[Maganda ring] tingnan natin yung mga programa na meron tayo para sa ating existing systems, gaya ng coal moratorium. Ang direksyon [dapat] natin ay away from coal and more renewables (We also need to look into our current programs to improve existing systems, such as the coal moratorium. Our direction must be away from coal and more renewables).”
