"The objective of the agreement is to enhance energy cooperation between the Philippines and New Zealand through government collaboration and the facilitation of private sector initiatives", Cusi said in a text message.

The MOU is a platform for New Zealand's geothermal industry to engage the Philippines in accelerating and promoting geothermal development through exchange of experiences, information, and technical assistance.

As of now, renewable energy plants - geothermal, hydro, wind, biomass and solar - account for the biggest share of the country's total installed power capacity.

Additional data from DOE also showed that the DOE has so far approved 755 renewable projects with a potential capacity of 16,949 MW, of which projects totaling 4,522 MW were installed a year ago.
