Philippines New Energy Ecosystem 2020

Philippines New Energy Ecosystem 2020


The New Energy Ecosystem Mapping is a project initiated by New Energy Nexus in collaboration with different energy and innovation stakeholders in the Philippines. The project aims to produce an interactive ecosystem map, document, and database of the different key players and indicators in the Philippine new energy landscape, which includes renewable energy and energy-smart technologies.

The Philippines New Energy Ecosystem is defined as the intersection of nascent new energy assets with financing mechanisms and related institutions located in a geographically concentrated area that has an enabling environment, or supportive new energy policies, which encourages commercialization and networking assets to increase communication and collaboration opportunities. The 2020 ecosystem map has 35 stakeholders and indicators with a total of 10, 779 entries in the database. These entries are carefully selected based on the validation criteria and legitimacy of the sources.
