The government is committed to providing energy efficiency and renewable energy in electricity supply for the people.
Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin said despite the ministry having introduced and implemented 73 initiatives throughout the 10 months in administration, she said the most important programme was the renewable and efficient energy initiative.
She said the ministry was expecting 20 per cent of the country’s energy to be generated from renewable sources by 2025, adding that the initiative was to increase the renewable energy mix in electricity supply, thus reducing consumption of fossil fuels, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
“This is our new target. We have been producing greenhouse gasses and this is not good.
“Hence, we have created several new targets and policies to have better energy efficiency and to make use of renewable energy as a replacement for fossil fuels.
