Singapore's Mandatory Energy Efficiency Kicks In

SINGAPORE’S industrial sector mandatory energy management requirements kicked in yesterday, April 22, all part of the Republic’s aim to improve energy efficiency through their Energy Conservation Bill.

Businesses who consumed large amounts of energy, 54 terajoules every year, in at least two of the years since 2010 will have to have an energy manager, use energy monitoring and report the results on energy use and energy efficiency improvements to Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA).

Singapore’s industrial companies consume over half of the city state’s energy, leading the NEA to report that the mandatory requirement will impact around 170 companies, with over 200 sites using high amounts of energy.

The Bill made it’s way through the Singapore parliament 12 months ago, with the aim to ensure that the bigger energy consumers apply similar diligence to energy management as they do for other core business concerns.
