ENGIE South East Asia has partnered with the National University of Singapore (NUS) for the university’s 2030 Action Plan to develop a smart, safe and sustainable campus.

The organisations are expected to exchange knowledge and jointly work on low carbon projects, particularly those relating to infrastructure and asset modernisation, energy efficiency services, and digital solutions.

They will also work on research and development, incubation of startups, industrial internship and overseas attachment opportunities. 

Since 2004, ENGIE has been managing and maintaining the facilities of NUS’ main Data Centre, ensuring its optimal operations and efficiency. It is working with NUS on a 5 MWp clean energy project, which will see ENGIE install 20,000 solar panels to power NUS’ Kent Ridge and Bukit Timah campuses, including University Town.

Surveys are being conducted to determine the possibility of installing an additional 3 MWp solar capacity. They are also studying the possibility of deploying green solutions, such as wind turbines coupled with efficient energy storage systems, hydrogen power systems, precinct cooling systems, digital management of electrical networks as well as bi-facial PV modules and solar LED lamp posts.
