The Department of Energy (DOE) is strengthening its information campaign in pushing for the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) in Mindanao.
The DOE has been conducting preparatory activities for the launch of WESM Mindanao, in coordination with the Philippine Electricity Market Corp. (PEMC) and the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP).
