Electricity demand in the Philippines is expected to rise because of the continuing economic growth. This means that the country will need new power plants to meet the required additional supply.

The Philippine economy grew 6.6 percent in 2012 and is projected to grow from six percent to seven percent in 2013.

According to the Department of Energy, electricity demand would be addressed with private sector commitment to build new power plants.
