Abstract : Today, in the Republic of the Philippines, the government is struggling to meet the growing energy demands of the nation, and has implemented energy policies that threaten the future well-being of the country. To become a more stable and prosperous nation, the Republic of the Philippines must increase energy security and sustainability through the use of renewable and nuclear energy to limit dependence on foreign fossil fuels, and improve their domestic power distribution systems to more efficiently and effectively reach their citizens.
