NATIONAL grid operator SP Group (SP) has started its trial of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology and has raised its investment in a V2G technology rm as Singapore progresses towards wider adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). The company aims to test the viability of tapping the energy stored in EVs in the trial to enhance the reliability of the grid, which will need to support more than 600,000 vehicles when Singapore phases out internal combustion engine vehicles by 2040, said SP in its media statement on Thursday. When charged, EVs store energy in their lithium-ion batteries, which serve as small energy storage systems that can transfer energy back to balance the power grid, such as when renewable energy sources such as solar power fluctuate due to weather conditions. If V2G technology is viable, owners of EVs can be paid for the use of their batteries when they are tapped to mitigate the intermittency problem in other energy sources. SP has stepped up its investment in the V2G technology rm The Mobility House (TMH), but did not provide the speci cs. SP only stated that TMH has a presence in Munich, Zurich and Belmont (in California) , and provides a non-proprietary software for integrating vehicle batteries into power grids using intelligent charging and storage solutions. SP is providing four V2G charging points at SP's premises for the trial, which will be completed in June 2022. V2G technology allows energy transfer between the batteries within an EV and the power grid, and so is more sophisticated than uni-directional charging of EVs.

The solution uses applied Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Internet of Things (IoT) to reduce energy consumption in a building. It takes into consideration factors like occupancy and weather and optimises air-flow to evenly cool areas. SP partnered with 75F to customise and test the performance and viability of the solution for Singapore’s tropical environment. The solution was trialled for a year at Singapore Institute of Technology’s (SIT) campus at Dover, and the Mercatus Co-operative Limited’s corporate office at One Marina Boulevard in Raffles Place. Both locations achieved more than 30 per cent in energy savings, while improving comfort for occupants by ensuring that the indoor temperature, and air quality were optimal. With the validated outcomes, SP and 75F will offer the solution to customers in Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia. Air-conditioning contributes 60 per cent of a building’s electricity consumption. With buildings consuming a third of Singapore’s total electricity consumption 1 , this new solution will help Singapore reduce electricity consumption and support the goal of cutting national emissions intensity by 36 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Mr Brandon Chia, Head, Centre of Excellence, SP Group said: “SP Group has partnered with 75F on this micro-climate control solution that leverages A.I. and IoT. It enables customers to enjoy cooler comfort in buildings while lowering their carbon footprint. We look forward to developing more next-generation technologies to help customers in Singapore and the region save energy and cost.” The micro-climate control solution is a self-learning, intuitive building intelligence system that optimises and regulates air-conditioning in buildings to improve operational efficiency and occupant experience. The system’s central control unit divides large open spaces into smaller 1 Source: The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Super Low Energy Technology Roadmap Report 1 zones that balances the temperature, air flow, carbon dioxide (CO 2) within each zone. It also optimises the air-conditioning operation by using the least amount of energy to achieve the required comfort. Gaurav Burman, APAC President, 75F said: “Both 75F and SP are committed to saving energy and reducing the carbon footprint of commercial buildings. The Asia Pacific market, especially Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia, represent a huge opportunity given their economic growth, rising energy costs and the growing focus to improve occupant experience and operational efficiency. This partnership combines 75F’s award-winning technology with SP’s capabilities and track record in the region, allowing both companies to accelerate our growth.” SP’s partnership with 75F first started as part of SP’s Energy Advanced Research and Development (SPEAR) programme, under the SP Centre of Excellence (SP CoE). SP CoE is an initiative supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), and drives the research, development, and integration of cutting-edge solutions and next-generation technologies for Singapore’s energy infrastructure network. -Ends- Notes to Editor: About SP Group SP Group is a leading energy utilities group in the Asia Pacific.

[20191205] Media Release -Smart building solution by SP Group and 75Fhttps://www.spgroup.com.sg/dam/spgroup/wcm/connect/spgrp/6ebe350f-4d2e-414a-91f3-a649a1931589/%5B20191205%5D+Media+Release+-Smart+building+solution+by+SP+Group+and+75F.pdf?MOD=AJPERES News Release SMART BUILDING SOLUTION BY SP GROUP AND 75F HELPS BUILDINGS ACHIEVE MORE THAN 30% ENERGY SAVINGS Singapore, 5 December 2019 – SP Group (SP), a leading energy utilities group and 75F, a building intelligence solutions provider, are offering a micro-climate control solution that can save more than 30 per cent in energy consumption while improving occupant comfort. The solution uses applied Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Internet of Things (IoT) to reduce energy consumption in a building. It takes into consideration factors like occupancy and weather and optimises air-flow to evenly cool areas. SP partnered with 75F to customise and test the performance and viability of the solution for Singapore’s tropical environment. The solution was trialled for a year at Singapore Institute of Technology’s (SIT) campus at Dover, and the Mercatus Co-operative Limited’s corporate office at One Marina Boulevard in Raffles Place. Both locations achieved more than 30 per cent in energy savings, while improving comfort for occupants by ensuring that the indoor temperature, and air quality were optimal. With the validated outcomes, SP and 75F will offer the solution to customers in Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia. Air-conditioning contributes 60 per cent of a building’s electricity consumption. With buildings consuming a third of Singapore’s total electricity consumption 1 , this new solution will help Singapore reduce electricity consumption and support the goal of cutting national emissions intensity by 36 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Mr Brandon Chia, Head, Centre of Excellence, SP Group said: “SP Group has partnered with 75F on this micro-climate control solution that leverages A.I. and IoT. It enables customers to enjoy cooler comfort in buildings while lowering their carbon footprint. We look forward to developing more next-generation technologies to help customers in Singapore and the region save energy and cost.” The micro-climate control solution is a self-learning, intuitive building intelligence system that optimises and regulates air-conditioning in buildings to improve operational efficiency and occupant experience. The system’s central control unit divides large open spaces into smaller 1 Source: The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Super Low Energy Technology Roadmap Report 1 zones that balances the temperature, air flow, carbon dioxide (CO 2) within each zone. It also optimises the air-conditioning operation by using the least amount of energy to achieve the required comfort. Gaurav Burman, APAC President, 75F said: “Both 75F and SP are committed to saving energy and reducing the carbon footprint of commercial buildings. The Asia Pacific market, especially Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia, represent a huge opportunity given their economic growth, rising energy costs and the growing focus to improve occupant experience and operational efficiency. This partnership combines 75F’s award-winning technology with SP’s capabilities and track record in the region, allowing both companies to accelerate our growth.” SP’s partnership with 75F first started as part of SP’s Energy Advanced Research and Development (SPEAR) programme, under the SP Centre of Excellence (SP CoE). SP CoE is an initiative supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), and drives the research, development, and integration of cutting-edge solutions and next-generation technologies for Singapore’s energy infrastructure network. -Ends- Notes to Editor: About SP Group SP Group is a leading energy utilities group in the Asia Pacific.

POWERING ECONOMIES delivering excellence FROM THE CHAIRMAN SP ANNUAL REPORT 2007 “Today we have the scale and competencies, integration and execution skills, strong management and sound business strategy to achieve our vision to be a leading energy infrastructure company in the region.” NG KEE CHOE CHAIRMAN 04 FY 07/08 was a year of significant transformation for the Singapore Power Group. With the acquisition of the Alinta assets and businesses in Aug 07, we took an important step forward to realising our vision of becoming a leading energy utility company in the Asia Pacific region. Our asset base has now increased to S$29.0 billion, with two-thirds of our assets outside Singapore. We have also enlarged our business scale and increased our geographical and business diversification to further enhance the quality of our revenue stream. Our Group portfolio today spans regulated, contracted and non-regulated businesses across several Australian states and Singapore. We provide the complete range of transmission and distribution competencies covering underground, overhead and undersea cables and pipes. We also provide technical management consultancy services to other utility companies in China, the Gulf region and ASEAN. Financial Performance For the financial year ended 31 Mar 08, SP recorded S$1.09 billion net profit, including an exceptional gain from the sale of the Singapore Power Building. Group revenue rose four per cent to S$5.4 billion, while total assets grew 59 per cent to S$29.0 billion, mainly due to the inclusion of the Alinta assets and businesses acquired. The Group’s return on equity was a satisfactory 26 per cent. Delivering Excellence Our businesses were sharply focused on executing our strategy and delivering results. In Singapore, SP PowerAssets continued its intensive network infrastructure development to increase capacity to meet the future needs of the growing Singapore economy. SP PowerGrid again delivered exceptional network results in FY 07/08. It achieved one of the best network performance worldwide, surpassing its peers operating comparable underground networks. Singapore had one of the fewest outages among cities globally. This excellent performance was due to the adoption of cutting-edge condition monitoring technology, rigorous quality processes, and continuous investment in network infrastructure and staff development. SP PowerGrid rolled out a wireless remote equipment monitoring system in Singapore for the 6.6kV distribution network to facilitate faster supply restoration to residential customers. The project, which involves installing wireless monitoring systems at over 1,000 substations in high density areas, will complete by end 2009. Supporting The Gas Market In Sep 07, PowerGas was designated as the developer, owner and operator of Singapore’s first LNG terminal, extending its vital role as the country’s gas transporter. PowerGas is preparing to roll out a web-based IT system to manage the transportation of natural gas under the new market structure which will come into effect when the Energy Market Authority implements the new Gas Network Code in the third quarter of 2008. Striving For Customer Service Excellence SP Services tapped on technology to re-engineer its processes and improve customer service. Customers can now use SMS to request for utility connections. SP Services’ concerted efforts to enhance customer service has been duly recognised. Customers again ranked the company as providing the best customer service among major service providers in the country, in an independent annual customer satisfaction survey. SP ANNUAL REPORT 2007 05 FROM THE CHAIRMAN Growing Internationally In Australia, following the acquisition of the Alinta assets and businesses, we have expanded our operations beyond Victoria, to Queensland and New South Wales and have become one of the largest energy infrastructure groups in the Asia Pacific. In addition to our core energy transmission and distribution businesses, we now provide competencies in asset development, construction and management services. Through SP Global Solutions, SP expanded its reach to more utility companies in China, the Gulf region and ASEAN. Empowering Our People The Group continued to invest in staff development to deepen our bench strength and improve further our industry leading performance levels. People Who Made It Possible We take pride in our high standards of corporate governance. We are fortunate to have highly experienced Board members who provide sound advice and guidance. I would like to thank them for their invaluable counsel. I also wish to extend my appreciation to Mr Keith Tay who retired from the Board at the SP Annual General Meeting in Jul 07, having served two terms. SP has benefited much from Mr Tay’s past contributions, particularly from his chairing of the Audit Committee. Our achievements would not have been possible without the support and cooperation of our stakeholders including our business partners. We deeply appreciate their contributions. And to all our employees, we thank them for their hard work and commitment to deliver another year of excellent performance and customer service. SP ANNUAL REPORT 2007 In Singapore, our strong rapport with UPAGE (Union of Power and Gas Employees) facilitated the signing of a new Collective Agreement in Jun 07, featuring a better link between individual performance and rewards. We cherish our excellent management-union partnership, as this is key to sustaining our business competitiveness. Caring For The Community As part of our corporate social responsibility programme, the SP Heartware Fund raised S$3.4 million for the needy elderly from Oct 05 to end Mar 08 with the support of our business partners and staff. This surpassed our commitment to the Community Chest to raise S$3 million in three years. In Australia, our businesses invested considerable time and resources to promote environmental sustainability and preserve indigenous vegetation. The Future Today we have the scale and competencies, integration and execution skills, strong management and sound business strategy to achieve our vision to be a leading energy infrastructure company in the region. We are well positioned to assist the many growing economies expand their energy infrastructure and we stand ready to play a larger role in the international utility industry.

With the acquisition of Alinta assets and businesses through SPI (Australia) Assets Pty Ltd in Aug 07, SP has reached a watershed in its corporate history. Our S$29 billion asset base today is more than double our S$13.6 billion assets in 2002. Today, 70 per cent of our assets are overseas, compared to only 18 per cent five years ago. The Group has made great progress in just five years due to our four pillars of strength • Operational excellence • Financial strategies • Corporate finance capabilities • Human talent. Operational Excellence As the owner and operator of Singapore’s entire electricity and gas transmission and distribution networks, and some of Australia’s major electricity and gas networks, we take our responsibilities to the national and regional economies, and consumers seriously. The Group maintains very high standards of network performance. The Singapore electricity grid is one of the world’s best. On average, a consumer in the country experiences less than one supply interruption every 30 years, one of the lowest in the world. This has been made possible by the deployment of new network technologies especially in the areas of condition monitoring. We have also invested heavily in the renewal and expansion of our networks in Singapore and Australia to maintain high operational performance and meet the increasing energy needs of these economies. In the last five years, SP has spent S$4.3 billion in capital expenditure.

This is evident in the rigorous financial, corporate governance and risk management processes embedded in the Group. In line with our strategic focus, we have divested all our non-core assets and redeployed the proceeds to our core electricity and gas transmission and distribution businesses. With our continual focus on operational excellence, financial discipline and optimal capital structure, SP’s return on equity was 26 per cent for FY 07/08, including the sale of assets. SP’s financial strength has made it an established name in the global capital markets, enabling the Group to tap the equity and debt markets efficiently. Corporate Finance Due to the inherent market limitations in Singapore, we have looked overseas to realise our growth ambitions as well as to diversify our businesses. The substantial growth in our asset base has been driven by our international acquisition strategy that focuses on • The Group’s core competencies in electricity and gas transmission and distribution • Developed economies with established regulatory regimes and frameworks • Regulated and contracted businesses that provide predictable and regular cashflows. The acquired Alinta assets and businesses include the gas transmission pipelines in New South Wales and Queensland, a gas distribution network in New South Wales, an electricity distribution network in Victoria as well as significant asset management capabilities. These have increased our geographical and sectoral diversification in Australia. 10 Human Talent SP’s continued success depends on our people and their capabilities. Today, the Group has about 6,400 staff located in Singapore and Australia. To support our rapid growth, we have accelerated efforts to recruit talent, nurture and develop our people. Some of the initiatives include • Apprenticeship programmes • Scholarship schemes • Post-graduate programmes • International posting assignments. In fact, a key driver for the Alinta transaction was the addition of its pool of 2,400 management and staff to our workforce. The integration of these people into SP has substantially broadened our operational capabilities which now cover water utilities as well and the management of third party contracts. Delivering Excellence With our larger asset base and expanded capabilities spanning two countries, we are now in an ideal position to seize growth opportunities. We will continue to explore quality accretive opportunities in US, Europe and ASEAN that will create long term value for our shareholders. We will also continue to deepen and grow our core competencies. For instance, with our proven track record, SP has been mandated to build, own and operate Singapore’s first Liquefied Natural Gas terminal as part of the country’s efforts to diversify its energy sources. We are committed to working with the relevant stakeholders for the successful roll-out of the terminal.

News Release SMART BUILDING SOLUTION BY SP GROUP AND 75F HELPS BUILDINGS ACHIEVE MORE THAN 30% ENERGY SAVINGS Singapore, 5 December 2019 – SP Group (SP), a leading energy utilities group and 75F, a building intelligence solutions provider, are offering a micro-climate control solution that can save more than 30 per cent in energy consumption while improving occupant comfort. The solution uses applied Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and Internet of Things (IoT) to reduce energy consumption in a building. It takes into consideration factors like occupancy and weather and optimises air-flow to evenly cool areas. SP partnered with 75F to customise and test the performance and viability of the solution for Singapore’s tropical environment. The solution was trialled for a year at Singapore Institute of Technology’s (SIT) campus at Dover, and the Mercatus Co-operative Limited’s corporate office at One Marina Boulevard in Raffles Place. Both locations achieved more than 30 per cent in energy savings, while improving comfort for occupants by ensuring that the indoor temperature, and air quality were optimal. With the validated outcomes, SP and 75F will offer the solution to customers in Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia. Air-conditioning contributes 60 per cent of a building’s electricity consumption. With buildings consuming a third of Singapore’s total electricity consumption 1 , this new solution will help Singapore reduce electricity consumption and support the goal of cutting national emissions intensity by 36 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030. Mr Brandon Chia, Head, Centre of Excellence, SP Group said: “SP Group has partnered with 75F on this micro-climate control solution that leverages A.I. and IoT. It enables customers to enjoy cooler comfort in buildings while lowering their carbon footprint. We look forward to developing more next-generation technologies to help customers in Singapore and the region save energy and cost.” The micro-climate control solution is a self-learning, intuitive building intelligence system that optimises and regulates air-conditioning in buildings to improve operational efficiency and occupant experience. The system’s central control unit divides large open spaces into smaller 1 Source: The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Super Low Energy Technology Roadmap Report 1 zones that balances the temperature, air flow, carbon dioxide (CO 2) within each zone. It also optimises the air-conditioning operation by using the least amount of energy to achieve the required comfort. Gaurav Burman, APAC President, 75F said: “Both 75F and SP are committed to saving energy and reducing the carbon footprint of commercial buildings. The Asia Pacific market, especially Singapore, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia, represent a huge opportunity given their economic growth, rising energy costs and the growing focus to improve occupant experience and operational efficiency. This partnership combines 75F’s award-winning technology with SP’s capabilities and track record in the region, allowing both companies to accelerate our growth.” SP’s partnership with 75F first started as part of SP’s Energy Advanced Research and Development (SPEAR) programme, under the SP Centre of Excellence (SP CoE). SP CoE is an initiative supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), and drives the research, development, and integration of cutting-edge solutions and next-generation technologies for Singapore’s energy infrastructure network. -Ends- Notes to Editor: About SP Group SP Group is a leading energy utilities group in the Asia Pacific.

Group revenue rose four per cent to S$5.4 billion, while total assets grew 59 per cent to S$29.0 billion, mainly due to the inclusion of the Alinta assets and businesses acquired. The Group’s return on equity was a satisfactory 26 per cent. Delivering Excellence Our businesses were sharply focused on executing our strategy and delivering results. In Singapore, SP PowerAssets continued its intensive network infrastructure development to increase capacity to meet the future needs of the growing Singapore economy. SP PowerGrid again delivered exceptional network results in FY 07/08. It achieved one of the best network performance worldwide, surpassing its peers operating comparable underground networks. Singapore had one of the fewest outages among cities globally. This excellent performance was due to the adoption of cutting-edge condition monitoring technology, rigorous quality processes, and continuous investment in network infrastructure and staff development. SP PowerGrid rolled out a wireless remote equipment monitoring system in Singapore for the 6.6kV distribution network to facilitate faster supply restoration to residential customers. The project, which involves installing wireless monitoring systems at over 1,000 substations in high density areas, will complete by end 2009. Supporting The Gas Market In Sep 07, PowerGas was designated as the developer, owner and operator of Singapore’s first LNG terminal, extending its vital role as the country’s gas transporter. PowerGas is preparing to roll out a web-based IT system to manage the transportation of natural gas under the new market structure which will come into effect when the Energy Market Authority implements the new Gas Network Code in the third quarter of 2008. Striving For Customer Service Excellence SP Services tapped on technology to re-engineer its processes and improve customer service. Customers can now use SMS to request for utility connections. SP Services’ concerted efforts to enhance customer service has been duly recognised. Customers again ranked the company as providing the best customer service among major service providers in the country, in an independent annual customer satisfaction survey.

People Who Made It Possible We take pride in our high standards of corporate governance. We are fortunate to have highly experienced Board members who provide sound advice and guidance. I would like to thank them for their invaluable counsel. I also wish to extend my appreciation to Mr Keith Tay who retired from the Board at the SP Annual General Meeting in Jul 07, having served two terms. SP has benefited much from Mr Tay’s past contributions, particularly from his chairing of the Audit Committee. Our achievements would not have been possible without the support and cooperation of our stakeholders including our business partners. We deeply appreciate their contributions. And to all our employees, we thank them for their hard work and commitment to deliver another year of excellent performance and customer service. SP ANNUAL REPORT 2007 In Singapore, our strong rapport with UPAGE (Union of Power and Gas Employees) facilitated the signing of a new Collective Agreement in Jun 07, featuring a better link between individual performance and rewards. We cherish our excellent management-union partnership, as this is key to sustaining our business competitiveness. Caring For The Community As part of our corporate social responsibility programme, the SP Heartware Fund raised S$3.4 million for the needy elderly from Oct 05 to end Mar 08 with the support of our business partners and staff. This surpassed our commitment to the Community Chest to raise S$3 million in three years. In Australia, our businesses invested considerable time and resources to promote environmental sustainability and preserve indigenous vegetation. The Future Today we have the scale and competencies, integration and execution skills, strong management and sound business strategy to achieve our vision to be a leading energy infrastructure company in the region.

With the acquisition of Alinta assets and businesses through SPI (Australia) Assets Pty Ltd in Aug 07, SP has reached a watershed in its corporate history. Our S$29 billion asset base today is more than double our S$13.6 billion assets in 2002. Today, 70 per cent of our assets are overseas, compared to only 18 per cent five years ago. The Group has made great progress in just five years due to our four pillars of strength • Operational excellence • Financial strategies • Corporate finance capabilities • Human talent. Operational Excellence As the owner and operator of Singapore’s entire electricity and gas transmission and distribution networks, and some of Australia’s major electricity and gas networks, we take our responsibilities to the national and regional economies, and consumers seriously. The Group maintains very high standards of network performance. The Singapore electricity grid is one of the world’s best. On average, a consumer in the country experiences less than one supply interruption every 30 years, one of the lowest in the world. This has been made possible by the deployment of new network technologies especially in the areas of condition monitoring. We have also invested heavily in the renewal and expansion of our networks in Singapore and Australia to maintain high operational performance and meet the increasing energy needs of these economies. In the last five years, SP has spent S$4.3 billion in capital expenditure.

This is evident in the rigorous financial, corporate governance and risk management processes embedded in the Group. In line with our strategic focus, we have divested all our non-core assets and redeployed the proceeds to our core electricity and gas transmission and distribution businesses. With our continual focus on operational excellence, financial discipline and optimal capital structure, SP’s return on equity was 26 per cent for FY 07/08, including the sale of assets. SP’s financial strength has made it an established name in the global capital markets, enabling the Group to tap the equity and debt markets efficiently. Corporate Finance Due to the inherent market limitations in Singapore, we have looked overseas to realise our growth ambitions as well as to diversify our businesses. The substantial growth in our asset base has been driven by our international acquisition strategy that focuses on • The Group’s core competencies in electricity and gas transmission and distribution • Developed economies with established regulatory regimes and frameworks • Regulated and contracted businesses that provide predictable and regular cashflows. The acquired Alinta assets and businesses include the gas transmission pipelines in New South Wales and Queensland, a gas distribution network in New South Wales, an electricity distribution network in Victoria as well as significant asset management capabilities. These have increased our geographical and sectoral diversification in Australia. 10 Human Talent SP’s continued success depends on our people and their capabilities. Today, the Group has about 6,400 staff located in Singapore and Australia. To support our rapid growth, we have accelerated efforts to recruit talent, nurture and develop our people. Some of the initiatives include • Apprenticeship programmes • Scholarship schemes • Post-graduate programmes • International posting assignments. In fact, a key driver for the Alinta transaction was the addition of its pool of 2,400 management and staff to our workforce. The integration of these people into SP has substantially broadened our operational capabilities which now cover water utilities as well and the management of third party contracts. Delivering Excellence With our larger asset base and expanded capabilities spanning two countries, we are now in an ideal position to seize growth opportunities. We will continue to explore quality accretive opportunities in US, Europe and ASEAN that will create long term value for our shareholders. We will also continue to deepen and grow our core competencies. For instance, with our proven track record, SP has been mandated to build, own and operate Singapore’s first Liquefied Natural Gas terminal as part of the country’s efforts to diversify its energy sources. We are committed to working with the relevant stakeholders for the successful roll-out of the terminal.

We own and operate electricity and gas transmission and distribution businesses in Singapore and in Australia, primarily in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Over a million Singapore industrial and domestic customers benefit from SP’s world-class electricity and gas transmission and distribution, and market support services. Singapore has one of the fewest and shortest power outages among cities worldwide, as rated by international industry indices. In Australia, SP owns a diversified energy utility company, SPI (Australia) Assets (SPIAA), primarily consisting of the Jemena companies, and 51% of SP AusNet, which is publicly listed on the Australian and Singapore Stock Exchanges. As one of Singapore’s largest corporations, SP achieved a revenue of S$7.8 billion and managed S$31.1 billion of assets in FY 10/11. 3 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 4 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 Enhancing Capabilities Powering Growth At SP, our mission has always been to provide reliable and efficient utility services to enhance our customers’ quality of life. Today, holding steadfast to our mission, we operate robust energy networks that ensure power to millions of homes and businesses every day. Such a task takes nothing less than world-class capabilities, and that includes the bestof-class infrastructure, as well as the right people. This is why we consciously seek to invest in new, advanced technologies and continually improve our operating processes. Equally important – naturally – are our people. We are committed to developing the full potential of every staff member, just as we are committed to upgrading our systems and operations. Enhancing Capabilities, Powering Growth. This is what we believe in. 5 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 Overall, FY 10/11 proved to be a positive year with its own share of challenges for Singapore Power. As the global economy continued its recovery, the SP Group turned in commendable results, surpassing that of the previous year. We continued to focus on growing our businesses, while maintaining operational excellence. 6 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 From the Chairman Financial Performance For the financial year ended 31 March 2011, SP Group posted a 23% increase in net profit to S$893 million from S$728 million, excluding exceptional and nonrecurring items. Our operations in both Singapore and Australia have benefited from the strong domestic economy respectively following the global recovery, and continued to grow steadily and prudently with improved financial results. The Group’s return on equity (ROE) stood at 12.2%, excluding exceptional and non-recurring items. This represents a 1.2% decline compared to the previous year, largely attributable to the impact of exchange translation as a result of the relative strength of the Australia dollar versus Singapore dollar on our shareholders’ equity. Excluding exchange translation, the Group’s ROE for the financial year ended 31 March 2011 would be marginally higher than the previous year. The Group’s total assets stood at S$31.1 billion, up from S$30.3 billion a year earlier. Operational Excellence As part of our efforts to provide reliable and efficient electricity and gas services to our customers, we continued to build on our core strengths and capabilities. The Singapore electricity network performance in FY 10/11 was well within set targets. The System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI) was 0.7 minute, while the System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI) was 0.04 interruption per customer per year. In the recent benchmarking study conducted by KEMA, an international utility consultant, SP PowerGrid again achieved exceptional network performance during the year. The study highlighted that Singapore had the fewest and shortest outages among cities globally, and consumers here enjoy competitive prices for electricity coupled with the best-in-class network performance. We achieved these through consistently investing in our operations and systems, and in staff development. Network performance for gas in the same period was also well within regulatory targets, with SAIDI and SAIFI scores of 0.313 minute and 0.0025 interruption per customer per year respectively. On the customer service front, SP Services continued to garner recognition for its excellent service through consistent service delivery and new initiatives. A benchmarking survey conducted in December 2010 found that SP Services had outperformed major utilities overseas in terms of cost efficiency and service levels. SP Services also performed well at the 2010 International Contact Centre Awards, winning Gold in two categories, the Most Innovative Use of Technology and Best Contact Centre Manager of the Year (above 100 seats). In Australia, SP AusNet continued to invest in initiatives to improve performance and reliability. We upgraded the electricity distribution network, allowing a faster response time to outages and the ability to switch power around the network from other areas if a fault occurs. The year in review also saw SPI (Australia) Assets (Jemena) celebrate 10 years of safe and efficient operation and maintenance of the Eastern Gas Pipeline (EGP). The pipeline provides natural gas to over 40% of Sydney, as well as the Australian Capital Territory. Major Developments and Projects During the year in review, we continued to push ahead with investments in our electricity infrastructure to ensure an efficient and reliable delivery of quality power into the future. 7 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 From the Chairman One of the key projects undertaken during the year was the development of the 18.5km North-South and 16.5km East-West cable tunnels in Singapore. When completed, the two tunnels will provide secure corridors for faster and more efficient installation of transmission cables and the replacement of ageing 230kV circuits. Smart grids are the future of energy infrastructure, and SP is committed to working closely with the government and industry partners on the research and development of smart grid technologies in Singapore. Our initiatives include enhancement of the existing intelligent systems, collaboration with the Energy Market Authority (EMA) on projects, and collaboration with Research Institutes to develop solutions and enhance technical know-how and capabilities. The year in review also saw SP Services embarking on the upgrading of its IT System, enabling retail competition in the Singapore Electricity Market. The system upgrade will help SP Services maintain a robust and efficient IT system to serve the needs of a growing contestable customer base in the electricity market and improve efficiencies through the consolidation of a common IT platform. Intensive development and testing activities were conducted in preparation for the system go-live in 2012. SP Services introduced an e-billing email alert, providing customers their monthly utility bill summary via email without needing to access their accounts online. Besides enjoying greater convenience, customers can now opt to go paperless and view their current and past bills online. In Australia, our subsidiaries, SP AusNet and Jemena, commenced the roll-out of the smart meters under the Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) initiative as planned. Our AMI Network Operations Centre is now receiving data from over 154,000 smart meters installed at households and businesses on the network. Select Solutions, a non-regulated business unit under SP AusNet, established its position as Victoria’s largest water metering service provider through its acquisition of Schultz Plumbing in October 2010. Select Solutions also invested in innovative technologies to facilitate and improve the identification of potential issues or faults on electricity assets. These technologies played a key role in the response and recovery from Cyclone Ului and Cyclone Yasi. Valuing Our Human Capital At SP, our core expertise lies with our people. During the year in review, investments in staff training and development remained a top priority. In FY 10/11, we leveraged the National Skills Programme for Upgrading and Resilience and provided over 1,400 up-skilling opportunities for staff. SP also launched a structured training programme for young engineers to acquire knowledge specific to the electricity and gas transmission and distribution industries. Over 40 engineers have enrolled in the programme and the knowledge gained allowed them to adapt more seamlessly to our engineering environment. SP also strengthened its partnership with its labour union, the Union of Power and Gas Employees (UPAGE), through the signing of a new Collective Agreement in July 2010. The new agreement features enhanced progression and re-employment opportunities for staff. In Australia, SP AusNet has developed a talent management strategy to assist in building a highperformance culture and deliver transformational change across the business. This strategy recognises and outlines the need to attract, assess, develop and retain people. SP AusNet was also presented with the 2010 Minister’s Award for Excellence for Employers of Australian Apprentices for the Gippsland region. The award recognised SP AusNet for demonstrating commitment, innovation and outstanding achievement in the training of apprentices. In 2010, Jemena conducted an Employee Climate Survey to determine the level of employee engagement within the organisation. Specific action plans, including a Jemenawide Employee Engagement Programme, were developed to improve employee engagement levels. 8 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 From the Chairman Giving Back to the Community As our business continued to grow, so did our commitment towards contributing to the community and helping the less privileged. In FY 10/11, the SP Heartware Fund raised over S$880,000 for the needy elderly under seven Home Help Service programmes. In recognition of our contributions to the Home Help Service, the Community Chest awarded us the 5-Year Outstanding Special Events Award and the Special Events Platinum Award for the year. During the year, SP also provided over S$58,000 worth of sponsorships to 14 organisations as part of its corporate philanthropy efforts. In Australia, SP AusNet supported the local rebuilding and revegetation of areas affected by bushfires while Jemena raised over A$140,000 for local and overseas charities. SP AusNet and Jemena also continued their partnership with Landcare Australia, providing key funding for native flora and fauna projects within network areas, for the restoration and revegetation of land areas to protect the habitats of native species as well as to enhance areas available for public use. In Appreciation I would like to thank my fellow Board members for their valuable advice and guidance over the past year. I am also pleased to welcome to the Board Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican, who joined us on 15 February as an independent director. I also thank UPAGE for its sterling service in upholding the interests of its members, while working closely with the SP Group Management, as well as the Unions representing our employees in Australia, for their unwavering effort in building the close ties that we enjoy. My gratitude also goes to our business partners and customers for their continued support. Looking Ahead With the fast-changing landscape of the industry, the future will no doubt bring new challenges. We must be ready to take on the challenges that lie ahead. We will continue to benchmark our engineering capabilities against the world’s best, and constantly look to improve our systems and embed in our processes the best practices that drive greater efficiency in our operations and achieve the best performance. Not least, we will continue to invest in developing our people’s potential. Their expertise and their drive to set new benchmarks in the face of new challenges are critical to the continued growth and success of Singapore Power. As Singapore Power continues to build on its capabilities to keep pace with the changing industry landscape and new challenges, I am confident that we have what it takes to seize new growth opportunities and take SP to greater heights in the years to come. I also wish to extend my deep appreciation to Mr Eric Gwee who will be retiring from the Board at the SP Annual General Meeting in July 2011. SP has benefited much from Mr Gwee’s contributions and years of dedicated service. Our achievements in FY 10/11 were made possible because of the dedication and commitment of our staff. To all of them, I extend my sincere appreciation.

Indeed, the SP Group’s continued strategic focus on the transmission and distribution segments of the electricity and gas industries stood it in good stead, with the Group’s revenue and earnings rising significantly. SP remains dedicated to strengthening its core capabilities and expertise. We achieve this by continuing to invest in the development of our technical and operational competencies, as well as in our people. SP’s strong growth is supported by four key pillars: Investment Strategy Financing Strategy & Capital Management Investment Strategy The SP Group constantly seeks to improve returns for its stakeholders, as well as deliver sustainable longterm value. SP’s investment in Australia represents 69% of the Group’s total assets. The financial contribution from SP’s business in Australia increased from 33% in FY 09/10 to 51% in FY 10/11. This increase was contributed mainly by regulated network businesses through higher capital investments, as well as better performance by Jemena’s service business. The recovery of many economies from the global financial crisis has also resulted in a renewed interest in infrastructural investments in Singapore, Australia, Europe and USA, and presented opportunities for SP to establish strategic investment partnerships with global financial investors. Financing Strategy & Capital Management As a result of the improved financial market and liquidity conditions, the SP Group has been able to finance its capital expenditure programme and refinance its maturing debt at competitive rates. Significant financial transactions completed during the year include the following: • SP PowerAssets issued a total of S$740 million of bonds under its S$8 billion Global Medium Term Note Programme. These issuances comprised three bonds in two different currencies, with maturities ranging from 7 to 12 years; Operational Excellence Human Capital • SP AusNet completed A$800 million of financing through a series of bank debt facilities, as well as a 10- year A$250-million bond issued in March 2011; and • SPI (Australia) Assets established itself in the capital markets with three bond issuances totalling A$1,094 million. These issuances, which were in three different currencies, have maturities ranging from 5 to 10 years. In addition, SPI (Australia) Assets also put in place A$1,700 million of bank debt facilities. 14 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 Corporate Review The proceeds from the bond issuances have been used mainly to refinance maturing bank debt, while stretching out the Group’s debt maturity profile. The SP Group is committed to maintaining a prudent financial profile, as well as a strong credit rating. SP is currently rated AA- / Aa3 (both ratings on “stable outlook”) by Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s Investors Service respectively. Operational Excellence SP continues to build on its core strengths and capabilities to compete with the industry’s best. In Singapore, the average duration of unplanned electricity interruption a customer experienced was less than a minute, i.e. 0.7 minute, which represents a system reliability of 99.9999%. Similarly, the network performance for gas in the same period was also well within regulatory targets, with SAIDI and SAIFI scores of 0.313 minute and 0.0025 interruptions per customer per year respectively. Building Human Capital With more than 7,500 staff in Singapore and Australia, enhancing our employees’ skills is key to strengthening our core competencies and sustaining our leading performance levels to secure our future. To successfully operate our asset owner-asset manager business model, we are firmly committed to investing in our people to deepen our bench strength. We upgrade their skills by providing opportunities for higher learning, on-thejob training, participation in specialist and apprenticeship training schemes, overseas cross-postings and job rotations. We support them in their pursuit of lifelong learning by providing subsidies for personal development courses. We stress a culture of open communication and work-life balance so that they lead healthy and enriching lives. We actively create communication avenues to listen to them so as to understand their needs.

In addition, the development of a major cable tunnel for the future installation of transmission cables on Jurong Island is in progress. The development of two major cable tunnels in Singapore, the 16.5km East-West tunnel and the 18.5km North- South tunnel, has commenced. When completed, they will provide secure corridors for faster and more efficient transmission cable installation. These two cable tunnels will also enable the orderly and controlled replacement of ageing 230kV circuits. • A new 66kV substation at Tuas has been commissioned to provide supply to the industrial developments at the Tuas View Extension. • As part of an ongoing network renewal programme for existing 66kV substations, the International Road and Pulau Ayer Merbau substations have been commissioned. The development of the new 400kV substation at Rangoon Road is in progress. Scheduled to be commissioned by December 2014, it will serve as a power injection node for bulk power transmission to the load centres in Central Singapore, and will help meet the rapid growth in demand. Two 230kV substations at Marina South and Tembusu are under construction. The Marina South substation is scheduled to be commissioned in 2012.

SDC registered a record revenue of S$50.8 million and net profit of S$9.4 million. With the completion of major system expansion projects, its total assets grew by 13% to S$203 million. Marina Bay Sands: SDC’s key customer benefitted from district cooling services. 50 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 Operations Review FY 10/11 began with strong numbers for SDC’s cooling energy offtake as the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Integrated Resort commenced its commercial operations. Phase 1 of the Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) also started receiving chilled water supplies from April 2010. The aggregate cooling energy offtake for the year was 434GW r h, compared to 92GW r h for the previous year. The completion of MBS and MBFC contributed to the attainment of a critical mass of cooling demand for efficient operation of the new utility system. This has led to a major lift in production efficiency. Consequently, the energy usage of 0.23kW e h per kW r h of cooling output for the year was 8% lower than the previous year’s usage of 0.25kW e h per kW r h, and 18% lower than the regulatory benchmark of 0.28kW e h per kW r h. SDC recorded another year of service excellence in FY 10/11. The supply availability index, which reflects the ability to maintain the temperature of chilled water supply within specifications, was 100% for the year. In addition, SDC scored an average of 8.7 out of 10 in a customer satisfaction survey of its key customers, which was conducted in March 2011. In 2008, SDC successfully brought on board MBS to procure its hot water requirement from SDC, although the supply of hot water is not a mandated service. The advantage is that SDC can use the waste heat from its chillers to produce hot water at marginal costs. The recycling of waste heat contributes to environmental sustainability. The hot water supply scheme has been successfully commissioned, and commenced in April 2010. System Development The year in review also saw SDC successfully complete the Stage 2 Capital Projects, at S$128 million. The projects included the 40MW r capacity expansion for Plant 1 at One Raffles Quay, the new Plant 2 (DCP2) at MBS with a 60MW r capacity, the piping network in the Common Services Tunnel and a new control system for the coordinated operation of the enlarged system. New Supply Offtake In FY 10/11, five new supply points were commissioned for the mandated area. The new premises that are being served are the MBS- Theatre, the MBS-Museum, MBFC-Tower 2, the Marina Bay City Gallery and Bayfront MRT Station. To leverage its existing production facilities and operational capabilities, SDC managed to secure two new customers outside its mandated zone, namely Ocean Financial Centre and Gardens by the Bay. Protecting the Environment Being a new urban utility system that increases the energy efficiency associated with air conditioning for a business district on a macro scale, district cooling significantly reduces the associated carbon dioxide emissions. For its achievement in energy efficiency, SDC was awarded the International District Energy Climate Awards 2011 Certificate of Merit for Superior Achievement in May 2011. The Awards were judged by a panel of experts led by the International Energy Agency. Going Forward Demand for cooling energy will continue its robust growth in FY 11/12, with the progressive occupancy of MBFC Phase 1, the Ocean Financial Centre, Asia Square and Gardens by the Bay. The aggregate contract capacity from customers is projected to grow from 120MW r in April 2011 to 145MW r by March 2012. To meet the rising demand for cooling, a new capital project for a 30MW r increase in production capacity at DCP2 has been planned for completion in mid-2012. SDC will continue its marketing efforts to secure the connection of non-mandated premises in the vicinity of Marina Bay to its district cooling system. SDC is currently in discussions with the relevant government agencies about implementing district cooling systems in other new development areas. 51 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 52 Singapore Power Annual Report 2010 Operations Review Australia Operations Our Australia Operations have four main business units – SP AusNet, SPI Management Services, SPI (Australia) Assets and Jemena Asset Management Co.
