HDB, Panasonic and EMA to study feasibility of pilot energy scheme [News]
By Siau Ming En, TODAY, 3 Jun 2014
A study on the feasibility of establishing a pilot energy scheme in Housing and Development Board (HDB) homes will be in the works, following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by HDB and the Energy Market Authority (EMA) with Panasonic at the World Cities Summit today (Jun 3).
The year-long study will be looking at the different energy choices and solutions which are enabled by new technologies.
Findings from this study will then be used to asses if the pilot energy scheme – which aims to encourage residents to reduce and shift their energy usage – can be implemented across some 3,000 households in the Yuhua estate. The estate is under a Greenprint programme that brings sustainability initiatives to HDB estates.
