The Government of Singapore has pledged to invest S$100 million (£47.5m) in two projects that are expected to help the nation’s transition towards a low carbon future.

The Building Energy Efficiency Research Development and Demonstration (RD&D) Hub and the Green Data Centre Research Hub Programme will split the funding and use it to make buildings more efficient as well as technology and software to make data centres use less energy.

They were announced alongside five new roadmaps, including solar and carbon capture – all of which focus on slashing carbon emissions.

They will be used to guide government agencies in formulating their plans and funding initiatives to secure the nation’s energy future and address climate change challenges.

The Government is also developing two more roadmaps – one focusing on electric mobility and another on solid waste management.
