In the heartlands, SP’s digital energy-saving solution, integrated with solar, battery storage and sensor monitoring capabilities, has enabled Bukit Panjang Community Club to reduce its energy consumption by 31 per cent.
We partnered South West Community Development Council in an energy-saving challenge for residents, which reaped savings of 50,000 kWh – enough to power 160 three-room HDB flats for a month.
More new technologies are being deployed to serve you better.
Together with seven other international utilities leaders, we have launched a global energy accelerator programme called Free Electrons. It supports start-ups developing solutions in areas such as clean energy, energy efficiency and mobility, digitisation, and on-demand customer services. SP Group, Energy Web Foundation and other global energy players are developing blockchain technologies that will enable greater integration of renewable energy sources on the electricity grid and lower transaction costs for customers.
We are partnering General Electric to develop Industrial Internet of Things capabilities and intelligent applications to enhance the reliability and efficiency of Singapore’s power network. With Siemens, we are creating a software platform for SP’s 24/7 control centres to enable more robust planning, surveillance and predictive maintenance of the electricity network, and technologies for new urban electricity microgrids which will incorporate renewable sources of energy. Similarly, the SP Centre of Excellence continues to invest in next-generation technologies for sustainable living.
SP Group is supporting Singapore Polytechnic students with a S$1million sponsorship over five years to build solar cars to compete in the biennial World Solar Challenge. The latest edition of the car, SunSPEC5, was launched in July 2017. It features advanced solar and energy storage capabilities close to commercially viable vehicles.
We are also offering SunSPEC polytechnic and university sponsorships for students who are part of the solar car team. They will secure jobs at SP Group with customised training and exposure in critical areas such as electricity and gas planning and operations.
