Development for Renewable Energy Applications Mainstreaming and Market Sustainability (DREAMS) Project
The goal of the DREAMS is to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from the Power Sector. An activity related to this goal is geared towards strengthening the capacity of Local Government Units (LGU), Distribution Utilities (DC), and other local organizations to raise investments and implement local RE projects either for households’ electrification and for n Productive Uses of Renewable Energy (PURE). One final outcome, aside from GHG emission reduction, is for 20,000 households in far-flung areas to obtain access to reliable sources of renewable energy.

A Project Steering Committee has been established to serve as a policy and decisionmaking body for implementation.1 A Project Management Unit (PMU) is based at the DOE Compound. The PMU is headed by a National Project Director (NPD) who is also the Director of the REMB. A Project Manager and support staff oversees the day-to-day operations of the DREAMS PMU.
