Engie to Help Singapore with Energy Efficiency
French gas and power utility Engie has signed a memorandum of understanding to help Singapore’s state industrial estate developer JTC make its buildings more energy efficient and environmentally cleaner.
Under the document, the pair will potentially carry out joint research and development, test-bedding and pilot deployment of advanced clean energy solutions for JTC’s industrial buildings, Engie said on October 29.
“Client solutions to support the carbon neutrality of buildings are at the heart of Engie’s strategy towards zero-carbon transition,” the company’s vice president for strategy and innovation, Shankar Krishnamoorthy said in a statement. “We look forward to collaborating with JTC to improve Singapore’s efforts in terms of energy efficiency.”
JTC manages more than 80% of Singapore’s industrial buildings, with close to six million m2 of facility in the country. The Singaporean government has promoted the greater use of natural gas as an energy source in recent years, with national consumption reaching 12.3bn m3 last year.
