Snapshot of 2021 Power Sector Data in the four Largest Countries of Southeast Asia

This report provides a snapshot of power sector trends till 2021 in the four largest economies of Southeast Asia – Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The findings are based on intensive data research conducted in 2021 in the context of the CASE program. It supports data transparency in Southeast Asia by providing a centralized platform to gather, analyze and visualize data.

Preferential Dispatch of all Renewable Energy Plants in the WESM

This publication reports on the effects of preferential dispatch of all existing geothermal, biomass, and impounding hydroelectric power plants, in strengthening the Philippine's energy self-sufficiency. Findings show that preferential dispatch for all renewable energy (RE) will increase the use of indigenous RE resources, diversify the energy mix, and reduce market clearing prices in the spot market.

The Preferential Dispatch report serves as evidence to the Department Circular No. DC2022-10-0031 of the Philippine Department of Energy. The report is authored by the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC)

CASE Insights The Influence of Socio-cultural Perspective on the Energy Narrative in Bali

Energy transition requires a multi-level approach. Technical assistance alone will not create an enabling environment for stakeholders to invest in energy transition efforts. In addition to political support, a socially constructed narrative plays a role in creating a transformation pathway to gain support from society. Understanding the socio-cultural landscape could help in constructing an effective energy transition narrative that resonates with the existing meta-narrative within the community to drive change.

CASE Insights A Closer Look at Decarbonisation Instruments for Clean Affordable Electricity in G20 C

This CASE Insights builds upon the key take-aways regarding how decarbonisation efforts have been sustained despite the pandemic in G20 countries, focusing on selected cases in Indonesia, South Korea, South Africa, and Germany. These lessons are derived from, but not limited to, the lessons learned from the 3rd Development Working Group Side Event organised by the Clean, Affordable and Secure Energy (CASE) for Southeast Asia titled National Development Policymaking on Decarbonisation to Achieve Clean and Affordable Electricity.

Toward an Affordable and Reliable Grid with Energy Transition

This work compiles and analyzes energy data from various institutions of the Philippine energy sector and other research findings to determine the reliability and viability of coal and variable renewable energy (vRE) sources in from year to year. 

The findings show that the Philippines no longer needs additional baseload coal, a power source that has proved to be unreliable in overcapacity and incompatible with the country’s power system.Additional flexibility in the baseload can be provided by using variable renewable energy sources, which are highly available, predictable, and can be maximized with the appropriate system design and policies. 

The TARGET report is authored and published by the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC), led by the team of Jephraim Manansala and Marion Lois Tan.

SIPET Member Highlight: Angelika Marie David

SIPET aims to create a community of energy transition stakeholders in the region to encourage knowledge SHARING and collaboration. Each month, we feature brief interviews of SIPET community members actively working to reduce the impacts of climate change and accelerate the transition towards clean, affordable, and secure energy for Southeast Asia.

These interviews highlight SIPET members’ work, what they consider milestones, what they are most proud of, and how SIPET can help.


Angelica is the CASE Project Lead for the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC), a Philippine-based international non-government group advancing fair climate policy and low-carbon, climate-resilient development. ICSC is engaged with the international climate and energy policy arena and is the Philippines’ local expert organization for the CASE for Southeast Asia.

A large part of Angelika’s work in the past years has focused on energy policy. She has been involved in research on off-grid island electrification, stranded coal assets, and carbon pricing. Angelika also engages with energy policymakers and stakeholders to support dialogues on low-carbon development and accelerate the energy transition within the Philippines and regionally. She also works as an analyst of the climate finance team to support the development of the team’s climate finance accountability work on energy and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.
