F&S Roadshow- to inspire public to be more responsible in energy consumption

 

The most significant increase in energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions is taking place in cities. The anthropogenic drivers of climate change are the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere. According to Malaysia Energy Information Hub (MEIH), the energy intensity per capita per year in Malaysia has been increasing from 2783kwh in the year 2002 to 3966kwh in the year 2012.

The Centre for Environment, Technology and Development, Malaysia (CETDEM) and Penang Green Council (PGC) are pleased to announce a jointly organised FiT & SAVE Roadshow in Georgetown, Penang.

The FiT & SAVE Roadshow comprises of two sections:

  1. A mini Exhibition(open to general public

    Date: 23rd February 2014 (Sun)
    Time: 7am-12 noon
    Venue: Lebuh Pantai, Penang (Project Occupy Beach Street, eco-friendly zone)

      Date: 24th February 204 (Mon)
      Time: 8.30am-1pm
      Venue: Auditorium F, 5th Floor, Komtar

The main aim of this Roadshow is to promote Renewable Energy (via the Feed-in Tariff mechanism) and to encourage Energy Efficiency amongst Malaysians as a means of reducing wastage of electricity while addressing the growing carbon dioxide emissions due to the burning of fuels to generate electricity.

Mr Anthony Tan, CETDEM Executive Director will be at hand to speak to visitors at the mini Exhibition. Meanwhile, CETDEM Chairman, Engr. Gurmit Singh, will be the main facilitator for the half day Workshop. For the workshop registration, please contact Penang Green Council: 04- 2503321 (Patrick Ong).
