“To reach the commitment of the Philippines to the Paris climate agreement, renewable energy have at least a 50% generation mix in the grid by 2030 to contribute to the 1.5 degrees Celsius global climate threshold.
We believe that the 50% RE target can be replicated in other countries in ASEAN which should be supported by a collective effort by member states which is currently missing as of the moment.”
