MANILA, May 3 (PNA) – The Department of Energy (DOE) has launched a Renewable Energy (RE) permit monitoring website or Energy Vehicle One Shared System (EVOSS) Wednesday, that will help speed up the release of permits from various government agencies.
”For renewable energy, this is the way forward. We need to link and connect the other government agencies in securing permits,” DOE-Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB) Director Mario Marasigan said during the EVOSS launch Wednesday at the Intercontinental Hotel in Makati.
EVOSS is a website, where developers and government agencies alike, could check the status of their permits. It will also include how many days the processing permit will last.
The website is a grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It will be online by the last quarter of the year.
The EVOSS will have a steering committee and technical working group (TWG) to ensure the program will continue even after Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla’s term. USAID and DOE will sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the collaboration. (PNA)
