The National Electrification Administration encourages electric cooperatives to pursue the use of mini-grids and distributed generation. A mini-grid refers to electricity generators interconnected to a distribution network that supplies to a localized group of customers not connected to the main power grid. Shown during the Philippines Mini-Grid B2B Forum at Manila Hotel are (from left) Energy Secretary Felix William Fuentabella, Alliance for Rural Electrification vice president Katarina Hasbani and Alliance for Rural Electrification executive director Marcus Wiemann. The forum was organized by the Department of Energy and the Alliance for Rural Electrification in cooperation with the European Union’s Access to Sustainable Energy Program.
