  1. With effect from 1 January 2020, a registered corporation under the ECA must, for each relevant business activity under its operational control, conduct an Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessment (EEOA) for the relevant business activity, and submit an assessment report to NEA before the expiry of the respective assessment period.

    You may refer to the circular Requirements under Energy Conservation Act (ECA) to Promote Continual Energy Efficiency (EE) Improvement  on requirements on EEOA for registered corporations.

    • A registered corporation that established operational control of a relevant business activity on or before 2 June 2017 must –
      1. conduct an Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessment for the relevant business activity; and
      2. submit to the Director-General an assessment report by 31 December 2021.
