Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Hitachi and Building and Construction Authority Jointly Commissioned Advanced Combined Heat and Power Pilot Plant

The Agency for Science, Technology and Research's (A*Star) Experimental Power Grid Centre (EPGC), Hitachi and the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) jointly commissioned an advanced Combined Heat and Power (CHP) pilot plant to conduct further research focused on powering cities more sustainably. The EPGC is a research and development programme under A*Star. The CHP plant's research is funded by A*Star-Ministry of National Development Green Building Joint Grant call. The newly completed CHP plant will be used to harness waste heat generated from the EPGC building's embedded generation which provides it with electrical power. The waste heat - which will normally be discharged into the environment - will be transformed into viable energy to power air-conditioning systems. This can increase energy efficiency by up to 33%. Most buildings in Singapore have not adopted the CHP system as they mostly obtain their electrical power straight from the power grid instead of their own embedded generators. The advanced CHP plant will soon hit the market as Hitachi has outlined its plans to commercialise the CHP system, particularly in South-east Asia, in 2015.
