What is happening to the climate?
The climate crisis is very real and it’s happening right now. In fact, it is one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today. As rising greenhouse gas emissions bring the planet to the verge of irreparable harm, the report released by the global panel on climate change (IPCC) on Monday, 20th March, has issued a "last warning" to governments about the possible consequences if we do not substantially accelerate climate efforts now.
The burning of fossil fuels for energy is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, which trap heat in the atmosphere and cause global temperatures to rise. According to the report, the global surface temperature has already increased by 1.1 degrees Celsius, and within the next two decades, it is anticipated to reach 1.5 degrees celsius. The impact this has on our environment not only includes climate changes such as rising sea levels, severe heat waves, and floods but also poses significant consequences to human health, food, and socio-economic development. The report calls for a transition to sustainable energy to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Why is sustainable energy our best hope in the face of the climate crisis?
Firstly, sustainable energy is clean energy. It is produced from sources that emit little to no greenhouse gasses. Solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal are some examples of such sources. This means that they don't contribute to the problem of climate change like the burning of fossil fuels do.
Secondly, sustainable energy is renewable energy. Fossil fuels are finite resources that will eventually run out, but sustainable energy sources are constantly replenished by natural processes like sunlight, wind, and water. This means that they can provide a long-term, reliable source of energy for our society.
Finally, sustainable energy can help to address other environmental challenges beyond climate change. For example, transitioning to electric vehicles powered by sustainable energy can reduce air pollution and improve public health.
Although there are some initial costs involved in creating alternative energy sources, they have the potential to be more affordable and dependable in the long term than fossil fuels. Singapore understands the importance of sustainable energy as it has been actively promoting it through various initiatives over the years, notably the Singapore Green Plan 2030. It aims to achieve net-zero emissions through the promotion of electric vehicles, increasing the adoption of solar power, and improving energy efficiency in buildings.
How Resync helps promote sustainability?
At Resync, we help to promote the Green Plan 2030 by aiding businesses and individuals to do their part by transitioning to sustainable energy. Resync works with your existing building management system to implement solutions that will reduce total energy costs and carbon footprint significantly. Buildings are among the biggest contributors to carbon emissions globally. To address this, Resync’s intelligent building management solution provides real-time monitoring of buildings’ performance, smart controls, and analytics to achieve peak performance with minimal energy usage. Occupants remain comfortable and productive while still optimizing the building’s system performance. Individuals can also do their part by adopting our digital platform and application for their households. It helps them to monitor and identify consumption spikes in real time without having to wait for their monthly electricity bill to arrive. This will help reduce energy consumption at the individual level.
Our vision at Resync is to create a sustainable and digitalised energy grid and to constantly improve energy efficiency through the adoption of sustainable energy. We want to work together with you to aid in your transition to sustainable energy. By working with us, we can create a more sustainable future for ourselves and future generations while reducing our environmental impact.
