PN 2012-17: The Urgent Need to Increase Baseload Generating Capacity in Mindanao

The electric power crisis in Mindanao in the summer of 2012 and the current precariously low power reserves primarily resulted from insufficient baseload generating capacity in the region. The solutions used to stem the crisis were at best stop-gap measures and some of these were controversial. This Policy Notes explains how important baseload generating capacity is and argues that although the Mindanao electric power crisis has passed, it might stage a comeback given that there had been no additions to the baseload capacity. The Notes also recommends possible short-term and medium- to long-term actions.
