National Energy Efficiency Conference (NEEC) 2017 - Building an Energy Efficiency Ecosystem

The NEEC 2017 with the theme of “Building an Energy Efficiency Ecosystem”, was held on 5 – 6 October 2017 at the Max Atria, Singapore EXPO. More than 350 participants from various sectors attended the 2-day event. This was the fifth NEEC organised by the National Environment Agency (NEA), in partnership with the Economic Development Board (EDB) and the Energy Market Authority (EMA). 

Opening of the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2017 

The NEEC 2017 was graced by Guest-of-Honour Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources. Minister Masagos made three observations on how a robust energy efficiency ecosystem could be promoted. First, he called for the adoption of an opportunity mindset, highlighting the achievements of Ardentec Singapore, an SME which received the Excellent in Energy Management award this year. Second, Minister Masagos emphasised that top management support for energy efficiency efforts was critical, citing the implementation of an energy management system as an example of an effective way to involve top executives in EE programmes. Third, he observed that learning from each other leads to faster improvement. He applauded industry-led initiatives such as the Food Manufacturing Energy Efficiency Committee (FMEEC) for their efforts to foster greater energy efficiency learning and improvement in their sector.

Energy Efficiency National Partnership Awards 2017

The highlight of the NEEC’s opening ceremony was the presentation of the Energy Efficiency National Partnership (EENP) Awards 2017. Into its seventh year, the EENP Awards aims to foster a culture of sustained energy efficiency improvements in Singapore by identifying role models and best practices for companies to emulate. This year, a new award category, “Outstanding Energy Services Providers of the Year” (OESP) was added to the annual EENP Awards to recognise energy services providers as an important part of the energy efficiency ecosystem. This move is aligned with the efforts to build a diverse ecosystem of energy services providers in Singapore. This year, 12 companies, two energy services providers, one certified energy manager, two public sector agencies, and two schools were awarded for their commitment to and achievements in EE.

NEEC 2017 

The EENP Awards 2017 was held in conjunction with the 5th National Energy Efficiency Conference (NEEC) 2017, which was themed “Building an Energy Efficiency Ecosystem”. The NEEC is a biennial conference dedicated to knowledge sharing on energy efficiency in the industrial sector. This year, the conference was attended by 356 delegates from the industrial, government and academic sectors. 

This year, the keynote speakers were Er. Lucas Ng from the Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore, and Mr. Samuel Thomas from the International Energy Agency. Er. Ng delivered a compelling presentation on why companies should put energy efficiency at the forefront of their corporate strategy, while Mr. Thomas presented the latest findings from the IEA’s annual flagship publication on energy efficiency, which was being launched in Berlin on the same day. 

Over the course of two days, conference participants enriched their understanding on a variety of topics ranging from energy management systems, to data analytics for energy efficiency, to sector specific topics on energy efficiency, and even solar PV applications for the industrial sector. A total of 31 speakers contributed their knowledge and voice to the NEEC 2017. The lively panel discussions after each conference session was an encouraging nod towards the participants’ interest in learning and exchanging on the NEEC platform. 

The efforts of the EENP Award recipients were featured at an energy efficiency exhibition. 21 organisations including NEA also showcased their energy efficiency programmes and technological solutions at the exhibition. The participants at the EENP Awards and NEEC 2017 enjoyed the opportunity to interact with the exhibitors to learn the background of award-winning projects and keep up to date with energy efficient technology in the industry sector.
