SP Group (SP) and the Housing & Development Board (HDB) will collaborate on an integrated energy masterplan to develop Singapore’s first smart energy town at Tengah. SP and HDB signed the memorandum of understanding on 10 July 2018 at the World Cities Summit 2018, witnessed by Minister for National Development and Second Minister for Finance Mr Lawrence Wong.

The masterplan integrates a wide range of energy solutions to help Tengah residents save energy and cost. These include Singapore’s first residential district cooling solution, solar energy, electric vehicle charging points and batteries as a smart energy enabler. SP will develop an integrative software layer called the Smart Energy Concierge, that will integrate the various energy solutions in a coordinated manner to generate efficiencies and energy savings. Enabled by artificial intelligence (AI), it will utilise smart controls, sensors and algorithms to provide the town council and residents with greater insights into managing their energy consumption and creating more savings.
