Capacity Enhancement of the Energy Sector on Hazard, Risk Assessment and Exposure Database Development Through the Use of the REDAS Software

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) collaborated to enhance the capacity of the energy sector in terms of determining the areas of concern for earthquake incidents using their state-of-the-art software: Rapid Earthquake Damage Assessment System (REDAS).

The REDAS is a tool for emergency preparedness, contingency planning and mainstreaming disaster risk reduction on the adverse effect of earthquake.

The use of REDAS will benefit the energy sector by having a near real-time simulated earthquake hazard information that can help assess the situation on the ground.

Through this MOA signing, the Energy Sector will pursue REDAS Training to support and strengthen disaster management capabilities of the energy sector.

The partnership of the DOE and DOST-PHIVOLCS is in line with the recently signed Department Circular No. 2018-01- 0001 or the “Adoption of Energy Resiliency in the Planning and Programming of the Energy Sector to Mitigate Potential Impacts of Disasters” also known as the Energy Resiliency Policy.
