City Gas ‘Go Green, Go Gas’ Seminar
City Gas’ “Go Green, Go Gas” seminar held on 16th October 2009 at Raffles City Convention Centre saw a turnout of over 500 guests from developers, authorities, M&E consultants and partners from the gas appliance industry. With the main objective of promoting piped gas as a safe, convenient, efficient, reliable and green energy source for modern living, guests were treated to an eventful morning with a keynote speech from Dr Lee Siew Eang titled “Gas Heaters – Clean Energy for a Greener Singapore”, presentations and fringe exhibitions from key partners in the industry.
The study has quantified that the use of Town Gas emits a staggering 63% less carbon compared to using electricity. Thus, City Gas promotes the use of gas water heaters whereby a normal user can save up to 80% of their water heating bill while being more environmentally friendly. Dr Lee’s study also estimated that the fuel switch from electric storage heaters to gas continuous flow heaters may result in carbon emission reductions of up to 86% at the national level. This is equivalent to 0.5 million tons of carbon emissions annually.
“City Gas has installed more than 30, 000 gas water heaters since year 2000. We are heartened that more Singaporeans are choosing gas over electrical systems and are now more familiar with the advantages of gas as a better alternative to electrical systems.” said Mr. Ng Yong Hwee, President and CEO of City Gas Pte Ltd.
The event concluded with a sumptuous buffet where participants had the opportunity to interact and network with like minded individuals.
