The Philippines Mini-grid B2B Forum aims to identify opportunities for investment in renewable energy mini-grids, share knowledge of innovative technical solutions and link key players in the Philippine energy sector, such as electric cooperatives, with international mini-grid experts and potential financiers.               

The Forum is organised by the Philippine Department of Energy (DoE) and the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) with the support of the European Union through its Access to Sustainable Energy Programme (ASEP), in line with the objectives of the UN 'Sustainable Energy for All' initiative. As a subsidiary organisation to DoE the Philippines National Electrification Administration (NEA) is one of the supporting organisations. 

The Forum will bring together more than 100 local and international players in the off-grid electrification sector, including technology providers, project developers and investors, as well as local electric cooperatives and public sector agencies such as the National Electrification Administration (NEA), National Power Corporation (NPC) and the Energy Regulatory Commission. Participants from local governments, foundations, research institutions and grassroot organisations are also expected to attend.

The Forum will feature:

  • High-level discussions
  • Regulatory advisory session
  • Technical training sessions
  • Pitches from Philippine electric cooperatives
  • B2B matchmaking sessions
