The Philippines’ Department of Energy warns that more electricity generation will soon be needed, as power demand in the country is expected to surge alongside areas easing the Covid-19 lockdown, ABS-CBN News reported.

Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi has said that the current 12,000MW in supply is catering to demand of up to 9,000MW, which is projected to grow significantly post-lockdown.

For this reason, the secretary has warned that the completion of new power plants, including a 668MW GN Power Dinginin coal-fired plant, planned to be finished by June, cannot be delayed.
