Study how to promote understanding of ways in which individuals (both children and adults), local governments and companies can help facilitate the transition towards a low carbon society.
Policies that promote the purchase of energy-saving electrical appliances are highly effective in making the transition towards a comfortable but low carbon society. Replacing conventional appliances with energy-saving products will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enable consumers to save on electricity charges.
Despite national government measures such as the Eco Point System to encourage consumers to replace current electrical appliances with more energy-saving products, there has been no significant increase in the purchase of energy-saving appliances.
In order to propose more effective measures, we will ascertain and categorize the obstacles other than cost and the lack of consumer understanding that hamper the promotion of energy-efficient electrical appliances.
