Our demand for energy is rising every year. We rely heavily on imported oil to meet our energy requirements. A large portion of the imported diesel is used for generating electricity and for transport. The need for energy not only affects energy prices but also increases emissions. Increasing carbon dioxide emissions lead to global warming and contribute to climate change. Let’s do our part to reduce energy usage.

Our understanding of energy efficiency

A study was conducted in 2017 by the Ministry to understand the extent of public awareness on energy efficiency, opinions on consumer choices, and behavior in energy consumption in selected households. A total of 1894 households participated in this study, representing a mix of housing types and geographical regions.
