Energy generation in the Philippines

Nuclear power

Currently no NPP is operating in the Philippines.

Bataan was planned as site for the first nuclear power plant at the Philippinnes - under the Marcos regime; Westinghouse started construction of a 620 MW PWR unit in 1980. The plan was cancelled and the work stopped.
