How much more energy can Singapore’s buildings, households, transport and other sectors save while still meeting demand? The Government is asking for expert help to work this out.
The National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS), a division of the Prime Minister’s Office that aims to help Singapore address climate change, has called a tender for a consultant to look at the country’s energy-efficiency potential across the whole economy until 2050.
The study is expected to take about 1 1/2 years and will be completed at the end of next year, and will be coordinated by the NCCS with the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources.
It aims to address questions such as: Could energy be saved by making lifts and lights in buildings smarter through the use of motion sensors? Could energy be recovered from food waste or waste grease? Could waste heat from power generation or industrial processes be used for other things? And, most importantly, how much would these solutions have to cost to be economically viable?
