First-ever Energy Exhibition 2014 to focus on efficiency, conservation
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
THE first-ever Energy Exhibition 2014 — showcasing new energy-related technologies, products and appliances organised by the Energy Department at the Prime Minister’s Office (EDPMO) — will be held from March 24 to 29.
With the theme, ‘Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EEC)’, the Energy Exhibition 2014 will act as an awareness programme by EDPMO that aims to educate and encourage members of the public to conserve energy for a sustainable future.
According to the EDPMO’s website, the exhibition will feature relevant government agencies, major oil and gas operators, international and local vendors, non-governmental organisations, and those from the transport sector such as car dealers that have hybrid models.
The Energy Exhibition 2014 will also be used as a platform for Energy Club students to present their findings on the effectiveness of an inverter air conditioner as an energy-saving appliance.
The Energy Club students are from the Science, Technology and Environment Partnership (STEP) Centre of the Ministry of Education. Through their study, the students will determine the best temperature setting for the air conditioners in each school.
In supporting Brunei’s Vision 2035, the Energy Exhibition 2014 is expected to help international companies to explore business opportunities that will produce a dynamic and sustainable economy.
As the first exhibition of its kind, it also hoped to educate and encourage people to make a change, by switching to affordable, energy-efficient products.
To be held at BRIDEX Exhibition Hall 2, the Energy Exhibtion 2014 will take place simultaneously with the EDPMO’s Energy Week. The launching of the Energy White Paper (EWP) and the Brunei National Energy Research Institute (BNERI) will also take place at the start of the Energy Week.
