With China leading sustainable development on the global stage, this presents a new growth engine for SP Group to deploy district cooling, heating and integrated energy solutions to meet customers' sustainability goals.

Following our first foray in China in 2015 and partnerships taking root in major cities, we have built up a strong project pipeline and set up three offices - in Shanghai as headquarters, Guangzhou and Chongqing.

Raffles City Chongqing


SP Group [SP] inked a 20-year deal in 2015 to design, build, own and operate a district heating and cooling system for CapitaLand's Raffles City Chongqing, an iconic integrated development comprising a shopping mall, a hotel, office towers, residences and service residences.

SP's operations commenced in September 2019, enabling Raffles City Chongqing to reduce energy consumption by more than 40 per cent, compared to conventional building chiller plants.

Chongqing Sino-Singapore Energy Services

In 2021, SP Group acquired a 40 per cent stake in Sino-French Energy Services Co. Ltd (SFES) in Chongqing to form Sino-Singapore Energy Services Co. Ltd (SSES). This is SP's first acquisition of energy assets in China, growing the company's China presence with sustainable energy solutions.​

SSES is the market leader for Combined Cooling Heating and Power (CCHP) solutions in Chongqing. It operates CCHP solutions deployed in three of the city's hospitals as well as a district cooling and heating plant that serves the Chongqing Danzishi Central Business District.​

The acquisition strengthens SP's district cooling and heating presence in Chongqing and expands our capabilities in CCHP offerings as we grow our sustainable energy solutions in China.


Guangzhou Knowledge City


SP Group is working with the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City Investment and Development Co. Ltd to provide district cooling and heating, and smart energy solutions at the China-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City [GKC].

The implementation of district cooling and heating networks, and other sustainable energy solutions such as solar, energy storage, energy efficiency and integrated energy management systems will enable GKC to enjoy substantial energy and cost savings. This will translate to a cleaner and more sustainable energy future for GKC and for Guangzhou city.

State Grid Chongqing Integrated Energy Services

SP Group and State Grid Chongqing Integrated Energy Services formed a partnership to jointly develop integrated energy projects that deliver smart, efficient energy management solutions. This is aimed at meeting the evolving operational needs and green targets of customers in Chongqing, China.

Through this collaboration both parties aim to drive innovation and capabilities towards achieving carbon neutrality for the city by providing customers with a comprehensive suite of clean and efficient energy solutions.


Smart Eco-District In Chengdu


SP Group is partnering the People's Government of Wuhou District, Chengdu, to transform the largest of five city centre districts in Chengdu, to a smart eco-district. SP will serve as the sustainable energy solutions partner to the district government and support the city's roadmap to carbon neutrality by developing and implementing technologies and digital solutions such as advanced data analytics and artificial intelligence tools.

In the first phase under the partnership, SP will design, build, own and operate an integrated energy solution that includes district cooling and heating system, smart metering, energy management and monitoring for the International Urban Design Centre [IUDC] in Wuhou over the next 25 years. The solution will provide IUDC with real-time insights on their energy and utilities usage data to help them optimise building performance, energy efficiency and comfort for end-users.
