Singapore using less electricity and water

Individual Effort
Home electricity consumption per capita fell from 115.7kWh in 2006 to 108.7kWh  in 2015. This could be due to more people using more energy efficient household appliances such as air-conditioners and refrigerators.

International Effort
The Paris climate pact seeks to limit global warming to under 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and countries, including Singapore, have committed to implementing measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

National Effort
Singapore's climate policy is based on three pillars - fuel switching (Green Plan), increasing energy efficiency (E.g. energy efficient buildings under the Green Mark Scheme), and developing renewable energy. Most of Singapore's electricity is already generated by natural gas, the cleanest form of fossil fuel. But there are limitations, such as the lack of suitable sites, to tapping renewable energy sources.
