Sustainable Cooling at Tampines – Singapore’s First Town Centre to Be Retrofitted With District Coolinghttps://www.spgroup.com.sg/about-us/media-resources/news-and-media-releases/Sustainable-Cooling-At-Tampines---Singapore-s-First-Town-Centre-To-Be-Retrofitted-With-District-Cooling
News Release Sustainable Cooling at Tampines – Singapore’s First Town Centre to Be Retrofitted With District Cooling SP Group, supported by Temasek, Tampines Group Representation Constituency (GRC) and the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE), will install and operate distributed district cooling at seven buildings in Tampines Central by 2025   Singapore, 18 April 2022 – Tampines will be Singapore’s first town centre to be retrofitted with an interconnected, sustainable cooling solution designed by SP Group. Seven existing buildings across the town centre – Century Square, CPF Tampines Building, Income At Tampines Junction, OCBC Tampines Centre 2, Our Tampines Hub, Tampines Mall and Tampines One, will be retrofitted to plug into this novel distributed district cooling (DDC) network, which is specially engineered for brownfield developments to provide the same cooling comfort while saving energy and lowering carbon emissions at the same time. The network will be completed and operational in the first half of 2025. Signing the supply agreement at Our Tampines Hub earlier today, and becoming the first batch of building owners to join the network were CapitaLand, CPF Board, Frasers Property, NTUC Income, OCBC Bank, and People’s Association. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Adviser to Tampines GROs, Minister for Social and Family Development, Second Minister for Health and Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs. The event is held in conjunction with the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore and the Singapore International Water Week organised by the National Environment Agency and PUB respectively. Instead of constructing a new centralised cooling plant, a DDC utilises existing in-building chiller plants that have been carefully evaluated. A few injection nodes are then selected based on their existing excess cooling capacity and superior energy efficiency factor. By connecting the injection nodes through a piping network, the rest of the buildings can obtain chilled water for their cooling needs, thereby doing away with the need for their own chiller plants completely. This in turn optimises the installed cooling capacity, ensures chiller systems operate at maximum efficiency, and leads to more benefits including reducing equipment costs and freeing up leasable space. Of the seven buildings in Tampines plugging into the DDC network, Century Square, Our Tampines Hub and Tampines One will serve as injection nodes. In addition, SP has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Ascendas Reit to design, build, own and operate the chiller plant at Telepark. This will ready Telepark to be a potential injection node for the network to serve future demands. All in, this brownfield cooling network will help the town centre reduce its carbon emissions by 1,359 tonnes annually, equivalent to removing 1,236 cars off our roads. It will also achieve energy savings of more than 2,800,000 kilowatt-hour (kWh) annually, which can power more than 905 three-room HDB households for a year. The realisation of this green solution was brought about through a partnership between Tampines GRC, MSE, Temasek and SP Group, with the strong support of building owners. It comes just eight months after a successful feasibility study of brownfield distributed district cooling was published in August 2021, affirming the various parties’ commitment to the nation’s sustainable development. Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Adviser to Tampines GROs, Minister for Social and Family Development, Second Minister for Health and Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs said: “The significance of this project should not be overlooked because it illustrates how sustainable solutions can be integrated to transform existing townships. In international forums, pressure to show and prove commitment to adaptation and mitigation for climate change is mounting. This project is therefore crucial to Singapore given that a significant proportion of our building stock today will continue to exist in 2050. The energy and cost savings, as well as reduction in carbon emissions enjoyed by building owners prove that with the right solutions, doing good and doing well are not mutually exclusive and will address our challenge posed by climate change.” “Novel sustainable solutions such as distributed district cooling can help scale practical and sustainable benefits not only for cities, but also for businesses as well as communities around the world. We will continue partnering like-minded organisations and businesses to catalyse breakthrough technologies that mitigate the impact of the climate crisis, and pave the way to a low-carbon future,” said Dr Steve Howard, Chief Sustainability Officer, Temasek. SP’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Stanley Huang, said, “The widespread implementation of low-carbon technologies like distributed district cooling can make a significant contribution towards Singapore’s climate ambitions. We are encouraged by the strong support from building owners for this sustainable cooling solution, which will contribute towards Tampines’ Eco-Town ambitions and will also create a long-term sustainable impact for Singapore’s built environment.” The introduction of a brownfield DDC at Tampines supports the Singapore Green Plan 2030, which is a whole-of-nation movement to advance Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development. Cooling contributes to Singapore’s annual carbon emissions, as air-conditioning can utilise up to 50 per cent of a building’s energy consumption. With more than 80 per cent of Singapore’s landscape being brownfield, a wider application of such a sustainable cooling solution will contribute towards the energy goals under the Green Plan and Singapore’s climate targets of reaching net zero by or around mid-century. In addition to the energy savings and reduction in carbon emissions, the DDC network will provide building owners combined life-cycle economic benefits of up to $50.8 million over 30 years. Through interconnection across the various buildings, the DDC will also reduce the current unutilised cooling capacity by up to 42 per cent, freeing up chiller plant gross floor area (GFA) that can be converted to commercial and lifestyle spaces. - Ends - Quotes from Building Owners Quote from CapitaLand Investment1 “As a global sustainability leader consistently recognised as one of the most sustainable corporations in the world, CapitaLand has played an active role in greening the built environment to reduce our carbon footprint.

[20220519] The Straits Times - AMK to have largest district cooling systemhttps://www.spgroup.com.sg/dam/jcr:69124ab8-322d-41a1-b608-9cb376fa3138
B4 SINGAPORE | THE STRAITS TIMES | THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2022 | 4 Industrial district cooling system coming up in Ang Mo Kio by 2025 1 ANG MO KIO INDUSTRIAL PARK 2 2 1 Chilled water is generated in a central cooling plant 2 A closed loop network of insulated pipes distributes the chilled water to each building Legend: Chiller room 3 When the chilled water reaches the building, energy transfer stations within the building circulate the cold energy from the network into the building’s air-conditioning system, which dehumidifies and cools the air Chilled water: 4 to 6 deg C Chilled water: 11 to 13 deg C Warmer water: 9 to 11 deg C Warmer water: 16.5 to 18.5 deg C ANG MO KIO AVENUE 12 3 ANG MO KIO INDUSTRIAL PARK 2 4 The warmer water is then circulated to the cooling plant via pipes to be chilled again BENEFITS Singapore’s largest industrial district cooling system will have a capacity of up to 36,000 refrigeration tonnes Reduce up to 120,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from the environment a year Equivalent to taking 109,090 cars off the road Repurpose more than 4,000 sq m of chiller plant space Source: SP GROUP STRAITS TIMES GRAPHICS AMK to have largest district cooling system It can cut power consumption in STMicroelectronics’ Technopark by 20% Ang Qing 120k Amount of carbon emissions, in tonnes, that the project will help to reduce each year. $513m What STMicroelectronics is investing in the project over 20 years. Ang Mo Kio will have the largest district cooling system to date, with the network in STMicroelectronics’ TechnoPark capable of cutting the industrial development’s annual electricity consumption by 20 per cent. Announcing the project yesterday, utilities company SP Group and global semiconductor manufacturer STMicroelectronics said the network has the potential to reduce carbon emissions by up to 120,000 tonnes per year. That is the equivalent of taking 109,090 cars off the road. The news comes on the heels of announcements over the last month of plans to install or expand district cooling networks around Singapore, namely Kent Ridge, Jurong Lake District, Tampines and Marina Bay. Singapore has been looking to cut electricity usage and carbon emissions with district cooling networks, which allow clusters of buildings to share and optimise the load of cooling through centralised chiller plants. The project in Ang Mo Kio is slated to be operational in 2025, with STMicroelectronics investing US$370 million (S$513 million) over 20 years, the two companies said. Along with lower energy consumption, the estimated decarbonisation stems from repurposing more than 4,000 sq m set aside for chiller plants, which will be free once the district cooling system becomes operational. This will provide space for solar energy and perfluorocarbon (PFC) abatement equipment – systems that reduce PFC emissions produced from manufacturing semiconductors that are harmful to the environment. Under an agreement signed between the companies yesterday, SP will design, build and operate the system, pumping chilled water to meet both the manufacturing and spatial cooling needs of the industrial development in Ang Mo Kio. Under a joint venture between SP and Daikin Singapore, the new district cooling plant supplying chilled water to STMicroelectronics’ TechnoPark will be built in Daikin Airconditioning Singapore’s main office in Ang Mo Kio. Hailing district cooling as key to empowering a low-carbon future for cities, townships and industrial parks, SP group chief executive Stanley Huang said the solution was customised to help energy-intensive manufacturing developments such as STMicroelectronics’ TechnoPark reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint in line with sustainability strategies. Yesterday, SP and Daikin also signed an agreement to explore the potential of district cooling in South-east Asia, starting with Indonesia. Mr Liu Shaw Jiun, chief executive of Daikin Airconditioning Singapore, said the upcoming shift of Indonesia’s capital from Jakarta to Kalimantan made the country the top choice for expanding its business model for district cooling. “In the shaping of a new township, they can implement such technology before the town is built, which will be a more economical and efficient way of managing cooling capacity for mass populations and buildings,” he said. He added that projects in Indonesia could pave the way for similar forays into Thailand and Vietnam, countries Daikin has projects in. Talks of future district cooling projects in Indonesia have begun with various stakeholders, said an SP spokesman, adding that further details cannot be disclosed as these discussions are still at a preliminary stage. aqing@sph.com.sg

Sustainable Cooling at Tampines – Singapore’s First Town Centre to Be Retrofitted With District Coolinghttps://www.spgroup.com.sg/about-us/media-resources/news-and-media-releases/Sustainable-Cooling-At-Tampines---Singapore-s-First-Town-Centre-To-Be-Retrofitted-With-District-Cooling News Release Sustainable Cooling at Tampines – Singapore’s First Town Centre to Be Retrofitted With District Cooling SP Group, supported by Temasek, Tampines Group Representation Constituency (GRC) and the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE), will install and operate distributed district cooling at seven buildings in Tampines Central by 2025   Singapore, 18 April 2022 – Tampines will be Singapore’s first town centre to be retrofitted with an interconnected, sustainable cooling solution designed by SP Group. Seven existing buildings across the town centre – Century Square, CPF Tampines Building, Income At Tampines Junction, OCBC Tampines Centre 2, Our Tampines Hub, Tampines Mall and Tampines One, will be retrofitted to plug into this novel distributed district cooling (DDC) network, which is specially engineered for brownfield developments to provide the same cooling comfort while saving energy and lowering carbon emissions at the same time. The network will be completed and operational in the first half of 2025. Signing the supply agreement at Our Tampines Hub earlier today, and becoming the first batch of building owners to join the network were CapitaLand, CPF Board, Frasers Property, NTUC Income, OCBC Bank, and People’s Association. The signing ceremony was witnessed by Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Adviser to Tampines GROs, Minister for Social and Family Development, Second Minister for Health and Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs. The event is held in conjunction with the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore and the Singapore International Water Week organised by the National Environment Agency and PUB respectively. Instead of constructing a new centralised cooling plant, a DDC utilises existing in-building chiller plants that have been carefully evaluated. A few injection nodes are then selected based on their existing excess cooling capacity and superior energy efficiency factor. By connecting the injection nodes through a piping network, the rest of the buildings can obtain chilled water for their cooling needs, thereby doing away with the need for their own chiller plants completely. This in turn optimises the installed cooling capacity, ensures chiller systems operate at maximum efficiency, and leads to more benefits including reducing equipment costs and freeing up leasable space. Of the seven buildings in Tampines plugging into the DDC network, Century Square, Our Tampines Hub and Tampines One will serve as injection nodes. In addition, SP has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Ascendas Reit to design, build, own and operate the chiller plant at Telepark. This will ready Telepark to be a potential injection node for the network to serve future demands. All in, this brownfield cooling network will help the town centre reduce its carbon emissions by 1,359 tonnes annually, equivalent to removing 1,236 cars off our roads. It will also achieve energy savings of more than 2,800,000 kilowatt-hour (kWh) annually, which can power more than 905 three-room HDB households for a year. The realisation of this green solution was brought about through a partnership between Tampines GRC, MSE, Temasek and SP Group, with the strong support of building owners. It comes just eight months after a successful feasibility study of brownfield distributed district cooling was published in August 2021, affirming the various parties’ commitment to the nation’s sustainable development. Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Adviser to Tampines GROs, Minister for Social and Family Development, Second Minister for Health and Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs said: “The significance of this project should not be overlooked because it illustrates how sustainable solutions can be integrated to transform existing townships. In international forums, pressure to show and prove commitment to adaptation and mitigation for climate change is mounting. This project is therefore crucial to Singapore given that a significant proportion of our building stock today will continue to exist in 2050. The energy and cost savings, as well as reduction in carbon emissions enjoyed by building owners prove that with the right solutions, doing good and doing well are not mutually exclusive and will address our challenge posed by climate change.” “Novel sustainable solutions such as distributed district cooling can help scale practical and sustainable benefits not only for cities, but also for businesses as well as communities around the world. We will continue partnering like-minded organisations and businesses to catalyse breakthrough technologies that mitigate the impact of the climate crisis, and pave the way to a low-carbon future,” said Dr Steve Howard, Chief Sustainability Officer, Temasek. SP’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Stanley Huang, said, “The widespread implementation of low-carbon technologies like distributed district cooling can make a significant contribution towards Singapore’s climate ambitions. We are encouraged by the strong support from building owners for this sustainable cooling solution, which will contribute towards Tampines’ Eco-Town ambitions and will also create a long-term sustainable impact for Singapore’s built environment.” The introduction of a brownfield DDC at Tampines supports the Singapore Green Plan 2030, which is a whole-of-nation movement to advance Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development. Cooling contributes to Singapore’s annual carbon emissions, as air-conditioning can utilise up to 50 per cent of a building’s energy consumption. With more than 80 per cent of Singapore’s landscape being brownfield, a wider application of such a sustainable cooling solution will contribute towards the energy goals under the Green Plan and Singapore’s climate targets of reaching net zero by or around mid-century. In addition to the energy savings and reduction in carbon emissions, the DDC network will provide building owners combined life-cycle economic benefits of up to $50.8 million over 30 years. Through interconnection across the various buildings, the DDC will also reduce the current unutilised cooling capacity by up to 42 per cent, freeing up chiller plant gross floor area (GFA) that can be converted to commercial and lifestyle spaces. - Ends - Quotes from Building Owners Quote from CapitaLand Investment1 “As a global sustainability leader consistently recognised as one of the most sustainable corporations in the world, CapitaLand has played an active role in greening the built environment to reduce our carbon footprint.

This further anchors Marina Bay’s position in driving environmental sustainability at a district level, accelerating the decarbonisation of Singapore’s core financial district and its surrounding vicinity. SP also signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with City Developments Limited (CDL) and Singapore Land Group (SingLand) to design, build, own and operate satellite plants within the upcoming Central Mall and Central Square redevelopment project, and Marina Square respectively. When operational in 2027, both satellite plants will have a combined cooling capacity of up to 15,000 RT and augment the Marina Bay district cooling network. Overall, the Marina Bay District Cooling network will operate at a total capacity of up to 90,000 RT. Subscribing to the sustainable cooling solution is expected to help developments save up to 20 per cent in cooling-related energy consumption. This enables a reduction in carbon emissions of 25,000 tonnes annually for the central district, equivalent to removing 22,700 cars off our roads. SP’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Stanley Huang, said, “As Southeast Asia’s largest district cooling operator, we aim to empower the green energy transition of buildings and cities with innovative and sustainable cooling solutions. By designing an efficient piping network and establishing satellite plants, we can expand the area served by Marina Bay district cooling network and help Singapore’s central business district gain access to a reliable, energy- and cost-efficient cooling solution. This will drive the adoption of sustainable energy solutions for greener buildings towards Singapore’s 2050 net-zero target.” Besides a reliable supply of chilled water from the Marina Bay district cooling network, which has achieved zero supply interruptions since the operations began in 2006, new developments and potential redevelopment projects will enjoy a lower initial investment cost, compared to a conventional air-conditioning system, without having to invest in their own chillers. The savings on equipment, operating and maintenance costs will also reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 15 per cent. Having centralised chiller plants also frees up prime space for other commercial or lifestyle purposes, potentially increasing asset yield for building owners. By 2027, SP will be operating a total 180,500 RT of cooling capacity through its district cooling networks in Singapore, extending its lead as the biggest provider of district cooling solutions in 2 Southeast Asia. In addition to Marina Bay, SP is providing district cooling solutions to residents at Tengah estate via a centralised cooling system, deploying distributed district cooling to a brownfield development at Tampines and establishing Singapore’s largest industrial district cooling system at STMicroelectronics. In April 2022, SP announced the expansion of its Marina Bay district cooling network to include five developments – 8 Shenton Way, IOI Central Boulevard Towers, Newport Plaza (80 Anson Road), Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort Expansion and NS Square. The latest expansion also strengthens SP’s ambition to be the largest Demand Response Aggregator in the Energy Market Authority (EMA)’s demand side management programmes, where SP aggregates electricity load curtailment on behalf of participating electricity-intensive customers through its district cooling operations. This helps to balance electricity demand and supply on the national power grid at critical times, while facilitating the integration of more renewables, and allowing customers to benefit from system savings.

SP Group Expands Marina Bay District Cooling Network With More Developments And New Satellite Plantshttps://www.spgroup.com.sg/about-us/media-resources/news-and-media-releases/SP-Group-Expands-Marina-Bay-District-Cooling-Network-With-More-Developments-And-New-Satellite-Plants
News Release SP Group Expands Marina Bay District Cooling Network With More Developments And New Satellite Plants Singapore, 26 May 2023 – SP Group (SP) announced that it has signed Letters of Intent to provide energy-efficient district cooling services to four developments in the Marina Bay area. These four developments are: Marina View Clifford Centre OUE Bayfront The Fullerton Heritage (consisting of Fullerton Bay Hotel, Clifford Pier and Customs House) SP’s Marina Bay district cooling network – the world’s largest underground district cooling network – will increase its installed cooling capacity by 2,000 refrigeration tons (RT) to 75,000 RT by 2027. SP will also deploy an additional two kilometres of underground pipes, extending from the Marina Bay district cooling plant to the satellite plant at SP’s electricity substation at George Street. This extension of the piping infrastructure along the Singapore Riverfront and Marina Bay area will enable more buildings to easily connect and access chilled water supply from the Marina Bay district cooling network. The network is situated in the Common Services Tunnel that has been planned and built by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. This further anchors Marina Bay’s position in driving environmental sustainability at a district level, accelerating the decarbonisation of Singapore’s core financial district and its surrounding vicinity. SP also signed Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with City Developments Limited (CDL) and Singapore Land Group (SingLand) to design, build, own and operate satellite plants within the upcoming Central Mall and Central Square redevelopment project, and Marina Square respectively. When operational in 2027, both satellite plants will have a combined cooling capacity of up to 15,000 RT and augment the Marina Bay district cooling network. Overall, the Marina Bay District Cooling network will operate at a total capacity of up to 90,000 RT. Subscribing to the sustainable cooling solution is expected to help developments save up to 20 per cent in cooling-related energy consumption. This enables a reduction in carbon emissions of 25,000 tonnes annually for the central district, equivalent to removing 22,700 cars off our roads. SP’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Stanley Huang, said, “As Southeast Asia’s largest district cooling operator, we aim to empower the green energy transition of buildings and cities with innovative and sustainable cooling solutions. By designing an efficient piping network and establishing satellite plants, we can expand the area served by Marina Bay district cooling network and help Singapore’s central business district gain access to a reliable, energy- and cost-efficient cooling solution. This will drive the adoption of sustainable energy solutions for greener buildings towards Singapore’s 2050 net-zero target.” Besides a reliable supply of chilled water from the Marina Bay district cooling network, which has achieved zero supply interruptions since the operations began in 2006, new developments and potential redevelopment projects will enjoy a lower initial investment cost, compared to a conventional air-conditioning system, without having to invest in their own chillers. The savings on equipment, operating and maintenance costs will also reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 15 per cent. Having centralised chiller plants also frees up prime space for other commercial or lifestyle purposes, potentially increasing asset yield for building owners. By 2027, SP will be operating a total 180,500 RT of cooling capacity through its district cooling networks in Singapore, extending its lead as the biggest provider of district cooling solutions in 2 Southeast Asia. In addition to Marina Bay, SP is providing district cooling solutions to residents at Tengah estate via a centralised cooling system, deploying distributed district cooling to a brownfield development at Tampines and establishing Singapore’s largest industrial district cooling system at STMicroelectronics. In April 2022, SP announced the expansion of its Marina Bay district cooling network to include five developments – 8 Shenton Way, IOI Central Boulevard Towers, Newport Plaza (80 Anson Road), Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort Expansion and NS Square. The latest expansion also strengthens SP’s ambition to be the largest Demand Response Aggregator in the Energy Market Authority (EMA)’s demand side management programmes, where SP aggregates electricity load curtailment on behalf of participating electricity-intensive customers through its district cooling operations. This helps to balance electricity demand and supply on the national power grid at critical times, while facilitating the integration of more renewables, and allowing customers to benefit from system savings.
