BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, March 15 (Xinhua) -- The first-ever Energy Exhibition 2014, which will showcase new energy-related technologies, products and appliances, will be held here from March 24 to 29.
With the theme "Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EEC)", the Energy Exhibition 2014 will act as an awareness program by EDPMO that aims to educate and encourage members of the public to conserve energy for a sustainable future.
According to the EDPMO's website, the exhibition will feature relevant government agencies, major oil and gas operators, international and local vendors, non-governmental organizations and those from the transport sector such as car dealers that have hybrid models.
The Energy Exhibition 2014, organized by the Energy Department at the Brunei's Prime Minister's Office (EDPMO), will also be used as a platform for Energy Club students to present their findings on the effectiveness of an inverter air conditioner as an energy-saving appliance.
The Energy Club students are from the Science, Technology and Environment Partnership (STEP) Centre of the Ministry of Education. Through their study, the students will determine the best temperature setting for the air conditioners in each school.
In supporting Brunei's Vision 2035, the exhibition is expected to help international companies explore business opportunities that will produce a dynamic and sustainable economy.
As the first exhibition of its kind, it also hoped to educate and encourage people to make a change by switching to affordable, energy-efficient products.
