Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Singapore works towards reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by using less carbon-intensive fuels, and by improving energy efficiency.

A whole-of-government approach has been adopted to implement measures to improve the energy efficiency and to reduce the energy use of various sectors. The Energy Efficiency Programme Office (E2PO), a multi-agency committee led by NEA and the Energy Market Authority (EMA), was established to achieve these objectives.

NEA actively promotes energy efficiency in the industry, household, and public sectors through legislation, incentives, and public education.

Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessment for Registered Corporations

  1. With effect from 1 January 2020, a registered corporation under the ECA must, for each relevant business activity under its operational control, conduct an Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessment (EEOA) for the relevant business activity, and submit an assessment report to NEA before the expiry of the respective assessment period.

    You may refer to the circular Requirements under Energy Conservation Act (ECA) to Promote Continual Energy Efficiency (EE) Improvement  on requirements on EEOA for registered corporations.

  2. For the first EEOA,

    • A registered corporation that established operational control of a relevant business activity on or before 2 June 2017 must –
      1. conduct an Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessment for the relevant business activity; and
      2. submit to the Director-General an assessment report by 31 December 2021.
    • A registered corporation that established operational control of a relevant business activity after 2 June 2017 must –
    1. conduct an Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessment for the relevant business activity; and
    2. submit to the Director-General an assessment report within 6 years from the day the registered corporation established operational control of the relevant business activity.
  3. For Subsequent EEOAs,

    • At the end of every assessment period, each relevant business activity that has attained the energy use threshold of at least 500 terajoules in at least 2 out of the 3 preceding calendar years will have to conduct a subsequent EEOA and submit the assessment report within 6 years from the end of its current EEOA.
    • Relevant business activities that attain an energy use threshold of at least 54 terajoules but less than 500 terajoules in at least 2 out of the 3 preceding calendar years will only have to conduct a subsequent EEOA upon receiving a notice of assessment from NEA. The relevant business activity will be given 6 years from the date of the notice of assessment to submit its EEOA report.
  4. The EEOA Report must be

    • signed off by the energy efficiency opportunities assessor who is principally responsible for conducting the assessment;
    • endorsed by the chief executive of the registered corporation.
