1 Introduction
With the rising concern of increasing energy consumption,  the Energy Market Authority are tackling by reviewing new ideas and solutions. Currently, enormous electrical energy is consumed by streetlights which are controlled by the means of the time of the day. One of the challenges face is due to the inadequate lighting control and poor power efficiency by streetlights which involves a great amount of energy wastage and plays a part in electricity costs.
With the development of urbanization, the usage of streetlamps increases rapidly in due to high traffic and human population density. On the other hand, these streetlights must be adequately illuminated to provide sufficient visibility for the safety of pedestrians and vehicles. However, these streetlamps are illuminated constantly for 12 hours from a timing of 7pm to 7am. This in turn requires a huge amount of electricity power to light them up. According to the article,” Singapore Energy Statistics,” (2015) there is an…

Summary Reader Response In the article “Duo turn plastic waste into a concrete idea”, Goy (2016) states that scientists have found an eco-friendly way to recycle plastic waste with the use of carbon nanotubes as an accompaniment to cement, reducing the use of cement. It processes plastic into gases, following which the product can be formed from these gases. Carbon nanotubes are lighter yet stronger. Technology company BlueRen uses a different material which inflict less harm on the environment. However, technology takes time to be implemented and research of the long-term effects of the nanotubes such as maintenance should be looked into. Sufficient research shows that nanotubes technology helps contribute to a greener environment.
Firstly, carbon nanotubes should be recycled from plastic.The article“Turning Plastic Waste into Carbon Nanotubes” (2014), Mdogangun states that “I had heard about plastic bags was about the environmental threat that they potentially pose, either by accumula…

Self-Introduction

Dear Instructor,
My name is Jickson Lim, and I am writing to introduce myself to you as a student in your Effective Communication class. Having graduated from Temasek Polytechnic with a diploma in green building & sustainability, I had done internship at fire command centre. I decided to further my studies in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) at SIT.
I am interested in a career related to land engineering. I am able to communicate with a small group of friends when doing project. Back in poly days, I had informed my groupmates their roles in the project. Discussing about installing of energy-efficient lighting will help save energy and costs. Telling my groupmates to surf the internet and find the most energy-efficient lighting.
In terms of weaknesses, I am quite afraid speaking in a public. I tend to get nervous when I speak in the stage, couldn’t express well in the presentation. Might feel a shame of what I share in the presentation. When I ge…
