There is a new smart school campus in town which is the first of its kind in South-east Asia to have a multi-energy micro-grid network.
The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) will be having a new campus which will employ technology and innovation methods for managing the energy needs of the campus.
Construction works for this new campus follow a ground-breaking ceremony, on 10 September 2019, which was officiated by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
It will rely on various energy sources to meet its energy needs.
These energy sources include gas, electricity and thermal energy.
These various energy sources will run through one energy network, micro-grid, at the future campus.
This latest campus, which will be in the Punggol Digital District, is a joint research effort between SIT and Singapore Power (SP) group.
