Arturo P. Alcaraz


"Father of Philippine Geothermal Development"



Arturo Alcaraz
AKA Arturo Pineda Alcaraz


QUOTE
"I have been cited for a role in the development of geothermal energy in the Philippines and in guiding national awareness to the use of one of the most valuable natural resources of the country. I feel deeply humbled for this signal honor accorded me, especially since it was more of a national effort rather than an individual one that brought the Philippines to its present position as one of the leading countries of the world in the use of geothermal energy."
