In the face of rising energy consumption and perpetual electricity shortage, it is important to adopt a comprehensive plan to boost energy efficiency. Energy saving measures can start from steps as small as replacing incandescent bulbs by LEDs, installing window films and cool roof coating to replacing outdated appliances and equipment with new energy-efficient models.
This can also be done through public awareness on saving electricity; thus being energy efficient. Awareness of various schemes and policies where customers can benefit and save on their energy bills. Simple energy audits of older buildings that were not built under the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) can have energy saving potential of 23% to 46%, which can get the energy bills down drastically.
