Emmanuel Juaneza is new NEA chief


THE National Electrification Administration (NEA) has named Emmanuel Juaneza as its new administrator, the agency announced Monday.

The NEA Board of Administrators (BOA), through a special board meeting presided by NEA Chairman and Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi, officially elected NEA Board Member Juaneza as the NEA Administrator on Monday.

Prior to this, Juaneza served as DOE Undersecretary.

President Duterte signed last October 13 the appointment paper of Juaneza as member of the NEA BOA and his nomination as the NEA Administrator.

Juaneza, in his message during the agency’s flag raising ceremony on Monday via Zoom, enjoined the NEA employees to work together and execute the agency’s mandate.

“The job is challenging and I am enjoining everyone that we work together to execute the mandate of the National Electrification Administration with focus on the total electrification of the remaining households across the nation,” he said.

“We are given a certainly daunting schedule, telling us to accomplish 100-percent total electrification by end of President Duterte’s office.”

Juaneza, a professional mechanical engineer, served as the DOE Undersecretary supervising the Electric Power Industry Management Bureau and the Renewable Energy Management Bureau. He was also designated as Cusi’s Alternate Chairman to the NEA BOA and Alternate Representative to the Boards of National Power Corp., National Transmission Corp., Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management and the National Renewable Energy Board.

Before his stint at the DOE, he was a Board Member of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority from September 2016 to September 2019.

The NEA, an attached agency of the DOE, is tasked to pursue total electrification of the country, in partnership with the 121 electric cooperatives.
