The Kent Ridge campus of the National University of Singapore will become a live test bed for low-carbon technology in a collaboration with Keppel Infrastructure.
Four projects have been chosen to jump-start the on-campus collaboration, which will be called the “low-carbon living laboratory”.
These projects include a hybrid power grid to ease the integration of renewable energy resources, novel electric vehicle charging strategies, district cooling systems and enhanced seawater desalination.
NUS deputy president for research and technology, Professor Chen Tsuhan, said: “The NUS Kent Ridge campus will serve as a vibrant living laboratory, where innovative solutions are tested in a realistic operational environment before they are deployed at a larger scale. These technological capabilities will in turn help enhance the climate resilience of our campuses.”
