Total energy consumption, performance year:
10,561.22 MMBtu

Clean and renewable electricity (report kilowatt-hours):
kWh MMBtu
Imported electricity from certified/verified clean and renewable sources (i.e., bundled green power purchases) 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu
Electricity from on-site, clean and renewable sources (rights retained/retired) 0 Kilowatt-hours 0 MMBtu

A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable electricity:

As early as May 2016, DE LA SALLE LIPA (DLSL) anchored its mission-vision, among others, to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and set one of its strategic directions to Creating Sustainable Futures, its commitment to environmental sustainability and reduction of carbon emissions. This has empowered the institution to shift close to 80% of its power mix from conventional sources to clean/renewables starting the Academic Year 2017-2018.

As a first step, in 2017, the Philippine Department of Energy (DOE) EPIRA Law requirements for Retail & Open Access to Electricity Consumers, the school engaged with an independent power producer with a bias towards renewable sources.
To date, almost 80% of the school's electricity is from certified renewables, specifically, from geothermal sources under a Filipino-owned company, FirstGen-Energy Development Corporation, through its Bacman Geothermal Plant.


A brief description of the on-site renewable electricity generating facilities/devices:

The school has backup diesel Generators Systems that supply electricity during power outages from the local electricity grid.


Clean and renewable thermal energy (report MMBtu):
MMBtu
Clean and renewable stationary fuels used on-site to generate thermal energy 0 MMBtu
Imported steam, hot water, and/or chilled water from certified/verified clean and renewable sources 0 MMBtu

A brief description of the clean and renewable stationary fuels:

None to date


A brief description of the certified/verified sources of clean and renewable thermal energy:

Almost 78% of the school's electricity is specifically from geothermal sources under a Filipino-owned company, FirstGen-Energy Development Corporation, through its Bacman Geothermal Plant.
