ASEP to pilot in two far-​flung sitios in Davao Occi­den­tal

The Euro­pean Union (EU) con­tin­u­ally extends its aid to the coun­try through the Access to Sus­tain­able Energy Pro­gramme (ASEP), an under­tak­ing between the EU and the Depart­ment of Energy (DOE).

Some­time in Novem­ber 2017, the ASEP Team led by Ms. Lau­rie B. Navarro-​ASEP Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance National Expert and Ms. Ali­cia de Guz­man – OIC for DOEEPIMB (Elec­tric Power Indus­try Man­age­ment Bureau) appeared before the DASURECO man­age­ment and offi­cers to dis­cuss the oppor­tu­ni­ties of the pro­gram espe­cially on the con­duct of the project fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies and site inspection.

The pilot project sites in Sitio New Mabuhay in Barangay Lit­tle Baguio, Malita, Davao Occi­den­tal and Sitio Mahayag in Barangay Balun­taya, Don Marcelino, Davao Occi­den­tal were con­sid­ered ideal after months of data gath­er­ing, base­line sur­vey, and focus group dis­cus­sions with the EU, DOE, ASEP Team, NEA, EC, LGUs in the community.

Ms. Lau­rie B. Navarro-​ASEP Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance National Expert dis­cussed before the

On Feb­ru­ary 27, 2018, the ASEP group together with Dr. Ernie Ter­rado – ASEP Key Expert, Mr. Sam Andrews — speaker for the tech­ni­cal and finan­cial impact of the projects, DOE rep­re­sen­ta­tives led by Ms. Ali­cia de Guz­man, and Ms. Lau­rie B. Navarro-​ASEP Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance National Expert dis­cussed before the DASURECO man­age­ment and offi­cers headed by Engr. God­ofredo N. Guya – the Gen­eral Man­ager and Mr. Rodrigo B. Sace­dor – the Board Pres­i­dent respec­tively the pro­duc­tive uses of renew­able energy tech­nolo­gies in the cho­sen sitios and the roles and respon­si­bil­i­ties of each agency/​office in the imple­men­ta­tion of the projects.

Dr. Ernie Ter­rado explains the impor­tance of the project granted by the Euro­pean Union (EU)

“The EC is the key in the suc­cess of these pilot projects…” said Dr. Terrado.

Mr. Sam Andrews dis­cussing the tech­ni­cal and finan­cial impact of their fea­si­bil­ity studies
on the abaca and corn crop processing

The oppor­tu­nity for another means of com­mu­nity devel­op­ment was accepted by DASURECO as it not only gives light to the com­mu­nity but also pro­vides them income aug­men­ta­tion through a highly advanced method of abaca and corn crop pro­cess­ing in Sitio New Mabuhay and Sitio Mahayag respectively.

Also present were Mr. Richard Flores-​NEA rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Mr. Ally P. Fer­nan­dez – rep­re­sen­ta­tive from LGU-​Don Marcelino, Mr. Fer­di­nand D. San – Barangay Cap­tain of Lit­tle Baguio, Malita, Mr. Amador D. Cano – Barangay Cap­tain of Balun­taya, Don Marcelino, and the Barangay Coun­cilors of each barangay unit.

With EU’s grant, the Philip­pine Government’s aim of total elec­tri­fi­ca­tion for so long will grad­u­ally be met by means of renew­able energy whilst pro­mot­ing energy efficiency.
