Deploying advanced electricity meters at all households by 2024. These meters enable households to monitor their electricity usage in a more timely manner via the SP Utilities mobile app.
Piloted a Customised Household Energy Efficiency Report (CHEER) for Jurong households with advanced electricity meters. This report helps them to better understand their electricity consumption patterns, with personalised tips on how they can save energy.
Existing HDB towns will use 15% less energy through the use of smart LED lighting and solar energy by 2030. New HDB towns will also be more sustainable such as having centralised cooling systems.
Introduced a $24 million Climate-Friendly Household Package to encourage households living in 1- to 3-room HDB flats to purchase energy efficient appliances.
Introduced the Mandatory Energy Labelling Scheme (MELS) to help consumers compare the energy efficiency of regulated goods make informed purchasing decisions.
Set the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) to raise the average energy efficiency of various household appliances such as refrigerators, air-conditioners and clothes dryers.
How Businesses Can Be More Energy Efficient
Invest in more efficient technologies and equipment, such as the more advanced H-class combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) technology for power generation companies.
Participate in relevant Government schemes such as the Industry Energy Efficiency Package to be more energy efficient.
How is the Government helping you?
Introduced the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for industrial equipment and systems (e.g. chilled water systems) to help industrial companies reduce their carbon footprint.
Launched an enhanced Industry Energy Efficiency Package to provide funding support for companies to adopt more energy efficient technologies and reduce their carbon footprint. The grants under the package include:
Genco Energy Efficiency Grant where EMA will support energy efficiency projects by the power generation companies. Each project must result in measurable and verifiable carbon abatement of at least 0.5 kilo-tonnes per annum (ktpa).
