Pres. Duterte keeps an open mind on nuclear energy use in PH - DFA Sec. Locsin


The quest of the country for a cheaper electricity remains alive and possible as President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has not closed his mind to the possibility of the country exploring the use of nuclear energy.

Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. said  President Duterte has misgivings about nuclear power but will keep an open mind on the matter.

“President has strong reservations about nuclear energy but indicated to advocates—who know what they are talking about its safety & surety as energy source— that he will keep an open mind,” Locsin said in his tweet last Thursday, Oct. 7.

“Same thing he said when I pushed for it on @markcojuangco’s behalf in the Cabinet,” he said.

Earlier the President directed the Department of Energy to study the introduction of nuclear energy into the country’s heavily depended coal power mix.

The President also asked authorities to hold public consultation on the proposed revival of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) in Limay, Bataan.

The BNPP was built in the 1980’s and was eventually mothballed over safety and public health concern following the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster in the former Soviet Ukraine.
