DOE chief bats for immediate restoration of power facilities affected by quakes

Apr 10, 2017 @ 15:58

Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi is calling for the speedy restoration of power facilities which were affected by the temblors that hit the Batangas and Mindoro provinces over the weekend.

This is to ensure the safe and immediate restoration of their power facilities affected by the earthquake.

Cusi emphasized the need for disaster-proof energy facilities and to apply the build-back-better principle to avert or ease the impact of calamities to such assets.

“We are currently on the final crafting of a policy on energy resiliency planning and programs to guide our energy industry participants to strengthen their existing infrastructure facilities, incorporate mitigation improvements into the restoration of damaged infrastructures, and improve operational and maintenance standards and practices,” the DOE chief said.
