Powertrends, the longest running energy exhibition in the Philippines, organized since 1996 by Leverage International, in cooperation with the Department of Energy will be held on September 3-4 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, Metro Manila, Philippines.

Along with the other 10 member countries of ASEAN, the Philippines is on track to make solar and other renewables account for 23% of the region’s total primary energy supply by 2025. The Philippine government is working to improve policies and investment framework for clean energy.
In line with these developments, Powertrends provides the platform for bringing together the players in these fields in one big gathering- where energy professionals and practitioners together with policy and law makers will assemble to exchange knowledge and build business relationships.
