The Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS) is a non-government and non-profit business association that represents the interests and provides a common platform for companies in Sustainable Energy sector to meet, discuss, collaborate and undertake viable projects together. SEAS was launched on 12 July 2006. The steady growth in membership numbers and programmes has mirrored the growth of the sustainable energy sector in Singapore and the ASEAN region. The Association benefited from a Local Enterprise and Association Development (LEAD) grant from IE Singapore and SPRING Singapore, underlining their belief in the future of sustainable energy industry and in Singapore’s role as a global Clean Energy hub. Through the years SEAS has continued to expand core services of Knowledge Development, Business Development and Market Development in response to the needs of the membership.
In 2017, the association launched the Sustainable Energy Start-Up Network (SESUN) to connect the young company’s to the ecosystem. In 2018, SEAS also launched the inaugural PowerACE competition, a start-up competition that receives applications from innovative start-ups from around the world including Singapore and helps shines the light on the best technologies and business models in this sector.
Enterprise Singapore is a statutory board under the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) of Singapore. It is the government agency championing enterprise development. Its vision for Singapore is a vibrant economy with globally competitive Singapore companies.
International Enterprise Singapore and SPRING came together on 1 April 2018 as a single agency to form Enterprise Singapore. Its mission is to grow stronger Singapore companies by building capabilities and accessing global opportunities, thereby creating good jobs for Singaporeans.
The agency works with committed companies to build capabilities, innovate and internationalise. It also supports the growth of Singapore as a hub for global trading and startups, and builds trust in Singapore’s products and services through quality and standards.
The Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N), inaugurated in June 2010, was set up with the intention of building on NTU’s existing research strengths, synergizing various research groups, and mobilizing resources in energy-related research. ERI@N’s mission is to develop and maintain a research program and associated facilities, focusing on world-class energy research through a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach that synergizes competencies of their researchers, stakeholders, and partners.
ERI@N is determined to enable knowledge creation and technology transfer in strong alliance with government agencies, leading industry players and SMEs and global universities to support Singapore’s national objectives to meet Singapore’s COP21 commitments. These commitments will be ratified in part through the development of green buildings, renewable energy deployment, proliferation of energy efficient solutions, creation of a “car-lite” society, digitalisation of the energy system enabling a ubiquitous smart grid architecture and establishing low carbon districts.
A large pool of researchers and staff coming from 25 nations across the world, having wide skillsets and expertise in Science, Engineering, Technology, Policy and Social science contributes to a vibrant, multidisciplinary and collaborative research environment at ERI@N, enabling it to achieve its mission for distinction and contribute to National aspirations for a Smart & Sustainable Nation.
A research intensive public university, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has 33,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students in the colleges of Engineering, Business, Science, and Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, and its Graduate College.
