This paper presents a short history of the development and utilization of geothermal energy in the Philippines, its present status and future prospects, and the economic viability of its utilization in the country. It reports financial and economic indicators relating to power generation and utilization of primary energy sources (hydroelectric, oil, coal, and geothermal energy) in the country from 1981 to 1989. A comparative analysis between electricity generating costs, results of operations and other operational data from these various power sources shows that geothermal energy is very competitive, very reliable, and a viable energy resource that can alleviate the energy problem in the Philippines. Fifteen per cent of the electricity generated in the Philippines comes from geothermal energy.
