Investing in Energy Efficiency
We burn natural gas and oil to produce over one quarter of Singapore’s electricity. Our long-term investment strategy is to improve the efficiency of our power generation, and thus reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Tuas Power Station has installed five natural gas-fired combined cycle plants, which have higher efficiency over oil-fired plants. The Tembusu Multi-utilities Complex (TMUC) uses Biomass Clean Coal (BMCC) cogeneration and Circulating Fluidised Bed (CFB) Boiler technology which yields a remarkable 70% efficiency rating.
In addition, we have developed efficient cogeneration plants for our customers that help to reduce their cost of utilities, as well as reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 20%.
