"Clean Energy: Could it save us from high oil prices?" on KK! Talk Show on DZRH -AM radio on June 11, 2008, Wed., 7:30 p.m. (Manila Time)


As oil prices surged last week, more than 500 individuals from within and outside Asia—government officials and policy makers, manufacturers, project developers, and service providers; top officials of financial institutions, leaders in the energy field and civil society groups—met to share their concerns, as well as visions, initiatives and innovative ideas toward a clean energy future. The Asian Development Bank (ADB), together with various cooperating governments and other organizations, brought them together for the Asia Clean Energy Forum (ACEF) 2008.

ACEF promotes clean energy in the Asia-Pacific region through donor cooperation and clean-energy policies and financial solutions that respond to the climate change and energy-security challenges for the region. This year, it included the "Marketplace of Ideas," which enabled Asia's most promising clean-energy solutions to be promoted and selected for five Innovation Awards. One of the awardees was the Renewable Energy Association of the Philippines (REAP).


ACEF's closing speakers Ted Flanigan (Eco-Motion), Winston Bowman (USAID) and Bindu Lohani (ADB) challenged the participants to help "green" the way to a cleaner energy future through policies, investments, and individual and group actions.


Their challenge became urgent as oil prices reached their biggest ever one-day rise last Friday. We must now act to produce and use clean, sustainable and affordable energy to overcome high oil prices, as well as to reduce the threat of global warming, which affects our survival on earth. Each one us has a role to play in meeting these challenges.

 What are the clean energy options for the Philippines? What options are now in effect and how can we help scale them up? What are the barriers for doing so? What more can we do? Hear some answers to these questions in Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK!), DZRH -AM radio on June 11, 2008, Wed., 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Guests are Engr. Oly S.

Serafica and Dr. Cora Claudio, president of the EARTH Institute Asia, and KK host, were speakers at ACEF.
