The Philippines will soon have a Green Energy Rating Program (Green E) that will rate and recognize outstanding renewable energy projects implemented in the country based on objective environmental criteria. It will serve as a mechanism to award and provide incentive to project developers and end-users that gave significant and active participation in successful RE projects. Green-E is among the promotional programs that will be developed under the Philippine Capacity Building to Remove Barriers to Renewable Energy Development (CBRED) Project, a project supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and implemented by the Philippine DOE.

IIEC is tasked to design the whole program and to conduct a pilot test of the design by the end of 2004. The design will include the development of the criteria, rating scheme, operating guidelines, monitoring and evaluation protocols, assistance in the identification and training of the members of the Verification Committee, financial plan as well as strategy to promote the program.
