Expenditure Review of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) - Philippines
NGCP is a private corporation responsible for operating, maintaining, and developing the Philippines' state-owned power grid. NGCP is regulated by the Energy Regulatory Commission through an incentive-based type of regulation called Performance-Based Regulation (PBR). As part of the rate-making process in PBR, NGCP's actual, budgeted and forecast expenditure plans were reviewed by NCL. The project also included the assessment of the efficiency and effectiveness of the utility’s transmission development plan; its effectiveness in supporting the electricity market; and minimizing the price paid by consumers for the generation and delivery of electricity. The outcome of the review was used to determine the maximum allowed revenue that the utility will be entitled to receive from the provision of regulated transmission services for each year of the Third Regulatory Period.
