MANILA, Philippines- Pinag-aaralan ni Energy Secretary Raphael Perpetuo Lotilla ang pag-shift  sa hybrid systems para makapagbigay ng long-term solutions sa problema sa enerhiya  sa Pilipinas.

“The long term solution…is really to shift to hybrid systems. We must end this overdependence on petroleum and petroleum-based fuels because otherwise we will always experience the volatilities in prices and, therefore, it means we would have to invest in solar, in wind, and as you mentioned even newer technologies,” ayon kay Lotilla sa isinagawang briefing sa Senate energy committee.

“Hopefully, down the road, ocean, thermal, hydrogen, offshore wind, these are the things that we need to invest in so that our people don’t have to depend on petroleum-based fuels,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Gayunpaman, sinabi ni Lotilla na hindi ito mangyayari “in a short period of time” subalit kailangan na ngayon pa lamang ay masimulan na  lalo pa’t ang halaga ng renewables ay bumababa.

“This could not happen overnight…but we know that there is a time for everything under the heavens because at that time, we could not shift in a massive way because the cost of renewables was too high and now the cost has been declining,”  aniya pa rin.

“So time is on our side but to be able to do this, we need certain reforms,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

Sinabi pa ni Lotilla na gustong-gusto na niyang  talakayin ang reporma sa energy sector kasama sina Finance Secretary Benjamin Diokno at  Budget Secretary Amenah Pangadaman na kapuwa nakaupo bilang board members ng National Power Corporation at Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM).

Isa sa mga punto na nais na talakayin ni Lotilla sa mga Kalihim ng Finance at Budget  ay ang” lengthening the corporate life of PSALM.”

Sinabi pa ni Lotilla na kinokonsidera nila na tingnan at rebyuhin ang “Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA), reforming the system covering the electric cooperatives, strengthening the processes in the Energy Regulatory Commission, and promoting competition in the energy sector.” Kris Jose
