Building green hydrogen generation and storage capability in Singapore
Synopsis: Lowering carbon emissions is central in the fight against climate change. One of the ways to achieve this is through the usage of green and renewable energy sources. However, in urban places such as Singapore, due to limited land and inconsistent solar energy, achieving zero emission with 100% renewable energy is extremely challenging. Despite this, in 2019, SP Group managed to power the first zero-emission building in Southeast Asia. The self-sustaining building is 100% powered with renewable energy and green hydrogen via an innovative hydrogen energy system (HES) and can be disconnected from the national electricity grid. The HES is part of SP Group’s Concept Lab that brings together corporates and experts from industry and academia to test and pilot next-generation sustainability solutions for a low carbon and smart energy future for Singapore and the region.
