The BSP headquarters has once again received a 5-star energy rating from the DOE.

MANILA, Philippines — During a recent on-the-spot energy audit, the Department of Energy (DOE) gave the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) head office in Manila a 5-star rating.

BSP Governor Benjamin Diokno remarked, “This acknowledgment is a monument to our effort to minimize energy use, which will have a significant impact not just on the economy, but more crucially, on the environment.”

The spot check was carried out by the DOE in accordance with Republic Act No. 11285 or the “Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act,” which requires government agencies to use energy efficiently.

For the third time, the DOE has commended the BSP for its energy efficiency initiatives. In 2016, the BSP was one of ten organizations to receive the “Energy Efficiency and Conservation in Government Buildings” award.

The BSP has implemented energy-saving measures such as the use of energy-efficient air conditioning and elevator equipment, the replacement of fluorescent lights with LED lights, and the installation of occupancy sensor lights in specified sections.

Employees at BSP are also encouraged to turn off room lights during lunch breaks, after hours, and while the rooms are not in use, as well as to turn off electrically operated appliances when not in use.

The power management features of electricity-powered devices are also used when they are available.

Furthermore, the BSP has erected a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of one of its buildings, saving it about PHP70,000 in yearly electricity use.

“We’ve been advocating for energy efficiency measures that allow the BSP to provide a safe, healthy, and resource-efficient work environment,” Diokno said.
