Mario C. Marasigan
Philippine Department of Energy
Mr. Mario C. Marasigan is currently serving as Director of the Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB) of the Philippine Department of Energy (PDOE) that handles the administration, regulation and promotion of renewable energy resources development in the country. Prior to his assignment to REMB, he served as the Director of the Energy Utilization Management Bureau that administers and implements the alternative fuels and energy technologies and energy efficiency/conservation programs of the Department. As such, Mr. Marasigan serves as the focal person in the formulation and implementation of policies and programs for the judicious and efficient use of fuels and electricity, adoption and promotion of new and alternative energy technologies, and development and utilization of renewable energy resources in the Philippines, particularly in the implementation and administration of the Renewable Energy Law of 2008 and the Biofuels Act of 2006. Moreover, he sits as the Director of the Technical Secretariat of both the Philippine National Biofuels Board and the Philippine National Renewable Energy Board. Beyond his regular duties and responsibilities, he serves as the PDOE's focal representative for renewable energy industry in international institutions, such as the International Renewable Energy Association and the East Asia Summit - Energy Cooperation Task Force, wherein he sits as Co-Chair of the Biofuels for Transport and Other Purposes Work Stream.
In his more than 29 years of government service at the PDOE, Mr. Marasigan was involved in research, exploration and development of the country's indigenous resources. He started with the upstream coal industry and later moved on to mini-hydropower, solar, wind and marine energy resources. He has likewise led the PDOE's Program Management Office for Rural Electrification, particularly in the application of renewable energy systems (solar power technology, micro-hydropower generation) in unviable areas for conventional grid connection.
Mr. Marasigan graduated from the Mapua Institute of Technology (Manila, Philippines) with a Bachelor's Degree in Geology in 1982. He has attended a Post-Graduate Studies in Geology in the International Institute for Earth Sciences and Aero-Space Survey (Enschede, The Netherlands), and Masters in Management in the Technological University of the Philippines (Taguig City, Philippines). He is a member of the Geological Society of the Philippines and the National Geothermal Association of the Philippines.
Mr. Marasigan participated and presented papers in various local and international seminars, workshops and conferences in the following fields: Coal Exploration, Clean Coal Technology, Hydropower Technology, Dams and Engineering Geology, Rural Electrification, Renewable Energy Technologies and Alternative Fuels.

This was indicated to the media by Department of Energy (DOE) director Mario Marasigan, explaining that one of the major hurdles had typically been on land acquisition for the location of the facilities.

Marasigan has emphasized that many project sponsors are currently advancing construction and installation of their facilities, yet he stressed that "still, the industry concern is: when are they going to finish?"
He said that local approvals, primarily on location issues, have been gridlocks in project implementations.
Marasigan has cited in particular that a strip of property could delay a project in entirety if the landowner will not agree to a purchase arrangement.
"Solar installation is land-intensive, so even if there's just one hectare that would have some issues, they could delay the development framework of projects," he stressed.
The solar race, he said, had reportedly been on various stages of developments - and the 500MW could have been easily achieved without the side concerns.
Marasigan had said that the total capacity for committed wind projects has reached over 300 MW.

Mario Marasigan, assistant secretary and director, Renewable Energy Management Bureau of the Department of Energy (DOE), said the inclusion of the SM solar power plant in the electricity market means that the power it generates contributes to the stabilization of the power supply in Luzon areas.

Marasigan said the power plant is included under the feed-in-tariff (FIT) system, a scheme that involves the obligations on the part of a electric power industry participant to source electricity from renewable energy generation at a guaranteed fixed price, applicable to a given period of time.
