Reduce Energy Consumption

★Improve efficiency of operationof car engines, in industries and power stations which will use less energy

★Since 2002 manufacturers of electrical appliances may apply to Singapore Environment Council to have their products labeled for energy-efficiency.

★Promote energy efficiency and energy consumption with the use of media and social networks

★Tight building design, including energy-efficient windows, well-sealed doors, and additional thermal insulation of walls, basement slabs, and foundations can reduce heat loss by 25 to 50 percent.

★ In cooler climates, designing buildings with south-facing windows increases the amount of sunlight(which provides heat energy) entering the building, minimizing energy use by maximizing solar heating.

★ Installing fluorescent lights or natural skylights can reduce the amount of energy required to attain the same level of illumination compared with using traditional incandescent light bulbs.

★Trees, landscaping, and hills can provide shade and block wind. Thus, all points that affect the amount of energy consumption are considered before the building or construction of houses and places.
