YCH Group will work with NTU on the EcoLabs programme and provide Supply Chain City as a testbed for new solutions for logistics in areas such as ambient cooling solution for better warehouse zoning, productivity improvement with AI & Big data, opportunity charging solutions and optimization of fleet management.
EcoLabs Energy & Sustainability accelerator is a joint program with NTUitive & SEAS designed to bring innovation to the energy sector. Thrice a year, we run 3-month programs for early stage startups to boost their growth and derisk their innovation efforts to markets. This is done through targeted and relevant introductions of translation resources (manpower, labs, and testbeds), access to corporate decision makers, VCs and expert mentors.
Our goal is to simulate and build a modular start-up city with start-up techs and explore potential to expand into a modular start-up community with sustainable materials where individuals can live, work, play and exchange ideas. City will be a showcase of the potential of decentralised communities using off-grid technologies, sustainable materials, and exploring the concept of self-sustaining community through experimental plug-n-play solutions.
