THE European Union (EU) Delegation to the Philippines will work together with Ateneo de Manila University, and its implementing partners Xavier University, International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives-Local Governments for Sustainability, Manila Observatory to implement a project for clean energy living laboratories.
The project is aimed at developing centers of excellence on energy access, renewable energy, and energy efficiency under the Access to Sustainable Energy in the Philippines.
ADMU president Fr. Jose Ramon Villarin attended the signing ceremony led by EU Ambassador to the Philippines Franz Jessen in on December last year.
ADMU, through its Ateneo School of Government, and its implementing partners aim to empower stakeholders to effectively respond to energy challenges and seize opportunities for sustainable production and consumption, particularly in managing the country’s transition to sustainable low-carbon energy.
The €3.8 million Clean Energy Living Laboratories project is one of the seven grants awarded under the EU’s Access to Sustainable Energy Program, which will run until 2021. (PR)
