Objective and Members

whole of government

Although energy efficiency makes financial sense and is a cost-effective means of reducing greenhouse emissions, energy efficiency measures may not be implemented due to market barriers such as the lack of information and capability.

To jointly promote and facilitate the adoption of energy efficiency in Singapore, the Energy Efficiency Programme Office (E2PO) has been established. The E2PO is a multi-agency committee led by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Energy Market Authority (EMA) and comprises the Economic Development Board (EDB), Land Transport Authority (LTA), Building and Construction Authority (BCA), Housing and Development Board (HDB), Infocomm Authority of Singapore (IDA), Agency for Science, technology and Research (A*STAR), Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) and National Research Foundation (NRF). The Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) and Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) are also represented in the committee.

The E2PO has identified the following five strategic thrusts to improve energy efficiency in Singapore:

  • Promote energy efficiency through regulation and standards, incentives and open information.
  • Develop human and institutional capabilities by developing local knowledge base and expertise in energy management and collaborating with Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs)
  • Promote emerging energy efficient technologies and innovation through supporting the research development and demonstration of new energy efficient technologies, innovations and business process improvements
  • Profile and promote energy efficiency internationally through various platforms such as Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and East Asia Summit (EAS)
  • Benchmark Singapore's energy efficiency initiatives against other countries and international framework
