The Energy Investment Coordinating Council (EICC) was created by virtue of Executive Order No. 30 (EO 30) in order to streamline the regulatory procedures affecting energy projects to ensure a continuous, adequate and economic supply of energy. The Council is tasked to spearhead and coordinate national government efforts to harmonize, integrate and streamline regulatory processes, requirements and forms relevant to the development of energy investments in the country, primarily with regard to Energy Project of National Significance (EPNS). It likewise upholds transparency and accountability among concerned agencies.
The EICC is chaired by the Department of Energy (DOE) with representatives from other government agencies as Council members. The Energy Policy and Planning Bureau serves as the Council’s Secretariat.
