Bringing sustainability to Brickland residents

Clean energy collaborationNTU Singapore, Brickland Grassroots Organisations (GROs) and Singapore-based solar energy system developer Sunseap Group are collaborating to cocreate and empower new sustainability initiatives for residents of Brickland in the Chua Chu Kang GRC.

Brickland GROs will partner the two parties to introduce food waste digesters to various coffee shops within the vicinity, set up a virtual power plant and solar photovoltaic panels at various residential blocks, all of which are part of the upcoming eco-circular belt at Keat Hong Woods.

The collaboration would allow Brickland residents, together with the GROs and community volunteers, to work together to make their neighbourhood a more sustainable place to live in.

As the knowledge partner in this collaboration, NTU through its Nanyang Business School (NBS), will seek to provide skills and training for individuals to spearhead and launch sustainability projects through workshops and training organised by NBS’s Centre of Business Sustainability. NTU students from the Corporate Social Responsibility Club will also be involved in sustainability community projects with residents in Brickland.

Sunseap will lend their support by tapping into industry best practices and a portfolio of clean energy solutions. Their experience and knowledge can be put to good use across all stages of Brickland’s sustainability journey. Brickland will also be receiving Sunseap’s sponsorship of ‘Renewable Energy Certificate (REC)’[1] to offset the day’s energy consumption, making this a carbon-neutral event.

[1] Renewable Energy Certificates are market-based instruments substantiating that electricity has been generated from renewable energy sources. They are purchased by companies to offset their carbon emissions.
