Edward Chia on Energy (Resilience Measures and Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill

As energy forms the base input of all products and services, it has a direct impact on Singaporeans and residents. Fluctuations in energy prices affect the cost of living, industries and jobs. As Singapore works towards reducing emissions, it must ensure that this does not limit economic growth. MP Edward Chia issued this cautionary note in Parliament on Tuesday (Nov 2), while expressing confidence that Singapore can reap the benefits from building a sustainable and efficient energy system that serves its national needs. He stressed the need to continue to work with the private sector to provide additional capacity, reduce energy wastage and implement innovative solutions, in areas such as underground centralised cooling and heating systems of buildings.
