Managing Electricity Consumption at Home | TOYL Celebration


   Bishan Public Library (Programme Zone Level 2)

   03:00 PM - 04:30 PM

   Free Admission

Technology can help you take charge of your electricity consumption habits.

The purpose of electrical switchboards has largely remained the same through the years – it is a device designed to ensure safety. With the advent of smart electrical switchboards in recent years, that role has evolved, giving consumers the ability to track and understand their electricity usage. Smart electrical switchboards not only collect, evaluate, and predict energy usage patterns, but also detect faulty components and provide pre-emptive warnings for such potentially hazardous situations. Whether it is adjusting electricity consumption habits or identifying appliances that use too much energy, the multitude of datapoints available through smart electrical switchboards will empower consumers to better understand and manage their electricity usage.

Connections: Past, Present and Future 

How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being.
