Nuclear, solar, geothermal power pushed at Manila energy summit

The Philippine government should seriously consider other sources of energy such as nuclear, solar and geothermal rather than rely on oil, an energy summit in Manila was told Wednesday.

“We must have a common and sustainable program of energy development from a variety of available and indigenous sources…at a cost which will make us more competitive in the world market,” congressman Juan Miguel Arroyo, chairman of the congressional committee on energy told the summit.
“We must also do our share in caring for the environment and in reducing our country’s reliance on expensive, imported oil,” said the congressman, who is the son of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Jose Juliano, a physics doctorate with the National Academy of Science and Technology told the conference: “The big power source is nuclear, don’t forget nuclear.”

He cited the number of nuclear energy projects in Asia, intended to meet the growing energy demands within the region.
