Energy Conservation Act (Chapter 92C)
Under the Act, large energy users in the industry and transport sectors that consume at least the equivalent of 54 tera-joules of energy per calendar year in at least two out of the three preceding calendar years must appoint at least one energy manager to manage energy use. These companies or transport facility operators are also required to monitor and report energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, and submit energy efficiency improvement plans on an annual basis to the relevant agencies.
The Act also consolidates the legislation for mandatory energy labelling and minimum energy performance standards for household appliances, as well as fuel economy labelling of motor vehicles, previously stipulated under the Environmental Protection and Management Act (Cap 94A).
The Act is jointly administered by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources and Ministry of Transport. The Minister for the Environment and Water Resources oversees the measures for the industry and households sectors while the Minister for Transport oversees the measures for the transport sector.
