Centralised cooling and heating solutions are key enablers in SP Group’s commitment to create a low carbon, smart energy future. These efficient systems enable districts and townships, in Singapore and China, to achieve their sustainability objectives.
SP Group operates the world’s largest underground district cooling network at Marina Bay, Singapore. The network centralises the production of chilled water to provide air-conditioning to prime buildings in the district. This innovative system saves energy, equipment capacity, space and cost, and helps the district to reduce its carbon emissions by up to 20,000 tons annually.
Our expertise and technology have since been adopted in China, where we provide district cooling and heating solutions. SP Group operates the facility at Raffles City Chongqing, the largest shopping mall in Chongqing to supply chilled water for air-conditioning. We are also partnering the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (GKC) to develop district cooling and heating solutions for the upcoming Knowledge Tower. We will continue to expand our presence in Chongqing, Guangzhou and Shanghai through further partnerships and collaborations.
In collaboration with the Housing & Development Board (HDB), SP Group will bring its first large-scale residential centralised cooling system to Tengah. With SP’s centralised cooling system, Tengah residents can enjoy as much as 30 per cent energy savings. This is part of the MyTengah collaboration between HDB and SP Group to develop sustainable energy solutions at Tengah, making the housing estate Singapore’s first smart energy town. Other “green” solutions that will be incorporated include vertically deployed building-integrated photovoltaic systems, and electric vehicle fast charging hubs coupled with battery energy storage systems. The suite of integrated solutions aims to generate efficiencies and energy savings for Tengah residents.
The SP REC Platform facilitates the transaction of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to help organisations and individuals to achieve their sustainability goals. RECs are tradable green energy attributes that represent units of electricity generated from renewable energy generation facilities. SP’s REC Platform allows participating buyers and sellers around the globe to be automatically matched based on their requirements.
The platform is one of the first in the world that uses blockchain technology to track the lifecycle of an REC - from issuance to transfer to redemption. This means that individuals and organisations alike can be fully assured of the integrity and security of their transactions made on the SP REC Platform.
SP Group is building Singapore’s largest public electric vehicle (EV) charging network. Our pervasive network addresses a critical gap in the adoption of EVs and empowers consumers to enjoy greener mobility options.

SP Group and Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) will build Singapore’s first multi-energy urban micro-grid at the university’s campus in Punggol Digital District, with a long-term target to achieve zero-emission and ability to operate independently from the national grid in times of emergency.
The micro-grid will integrate gas, electricity and thermal energy into a unified smart energy network through multiple phases of execution. It will enable SIT to tap green energy sources such as solar energy and deploy energy storage technologies, micro-grid controller and energy digital management system to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.
New solar technologies such as Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) will be deployed at the campus, serving as a green energy source as well as a skylight, which enhances natural daylighting transmission to illuminate SIT’s food court, which will be certified as a Super Low Energy Building.
The multi-energy micro-grid will serve as a teaching and applied research platform for SIT faculty, students and other stakeholders in the energy ecosystem.
SP Group (SP) is partnering Sembcorp Marine to integrate Green Energy Tech (GET™) and rooftop solar panels at Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard.
A total of 8.5 MegaWattpeak (MWp) of rooftop solar energy will be deployed at the yard. The generation, usage, and storage of solar energy will be managed and optimised by SP’s GET smart energy management system that incorporates Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, sensors and advanced metering infrastructure to realise significant energy savings.
Collectively, this provides close to 60% of electricity consumed at the yard’s steel fabrication facility, equivalent to powering more than 2,300 four-room flats for a year. It also reduces annual carbon emissions by more than 4,200 tonnes, equivalent to taking approximately 1,300 cars off the road.
