1. The Energy Performance Monitoring (EPM) requirements shall apply to each relevant business activity (RBA) under the operational control of a registered corporation (i) whose principal business activity is in the generation, transmission, or distribution of electricity, and (ii) where there is at least 1 generating unit that has a name-plate rating of more than 10 MW.
2. A registered corporation under the ECA must, for each RBA under its operational control, implement EPM for each generating unit, whereby the aggregate annual energy consumption (AEC) of these units is at least 80% of the site’s AEC.
You may refer to the Energy Conservation (Energy Management Practices) Regulations 2013 to find out more about the EPM requirements.
3. Thermodynamic Model Development and First Report Submissions Timeline
- The implementation of EPM and submission of reports (such as the model validation report and first EPM report) shall be done by the following timeline:
Thermodynamic Model Development
Model Validation Report
First EPM Report
31 Dec 2023
30 Jun 2024
30 Jun 2025
Newly registered RBA
(From 2024 onwards)
31 Dec of year (X)*
30 Jun of year X+1
30 Jun of year X+2
Existing RBA with new or repowered generating units(From 2024 onwards)
31 Dec of year (Y)^
30 Jun of year Y+1
30 Jun of year Y+2
* Year (X) refers to the year on which either a change in operation control of a relevant business activity occurs or a corporation is registered under ECA
^ Year (Y) refers to the year on which an existing genco begins commercial operation of a new or repowered generating unit, which is expected to fall under the EPM requirements for the genco to cover generating units which consume on aggregate, at least 80% of the site’s AEC.
4. Subsequent EPM Report Submission Timeline
After the first EPM report submission, the RBA shall submit an EPM report annually by 30 June of each year.
5. Submission Requirements
- The assessment period for an EPM report shall be based on a 1-year period, starting on 1 January of the preceding calendar year.
