The University of the Philippines Solar Laboratory (UPSL) is a unit under the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering of the University of the Philippines (UP), an institution for higher education and research. UPSL was established in 1988 to institutionalise the technical, education, research, policy and market support of renewable energy (RE) in the Philippines. Research activities include primarily the adaptation and localization of renewable energy technologies to suit the Philippine situation. UPSL is a Cooperating Research Institution (CRI) of the Philippine Department of Energy (DOE). As a CRI, it has been developing and evaluating the techno-economic performance of various applications and market delivery mechanisms of renewable energy in the Philippines. UPSL also coordinates the teaching and research activities on new and renewable energy at UP�s graduate program in Energy Engineering. Through its network which includes policy makers (national and local government), private sector, academic institutions, research organizations, and community-based NGOs, UPSL has been informally serving as the information hub on NRE in the Philippines.
