Since 2019, New Energy Nexus Philippines has been working to strengthen and raise awareness about our clean energy innovation ecosystem.


We aim to create opportunities to energy businesses, startup founders, enthusiasts and other stakeholders to take an active role in our country’s energy transition through entrepreneurship and innovation.





Despite being a trailblazer in implementing policies and laws that support sustainable energy and climate action, the Philippines still faces some key challenges.
