NTU Launches EcoCampus initiative

Published on: 02-May-2014

The EcoCampus initiative was launched on 30 April 2014, by Mr S. Iswaran, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade & Industry. Under the initiative, NTU aims to achieve a 35 per cent reduction in its energy and water usage, carbon footprint and waste output by year 2020.

In partnership with Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) and JTC Corporation, the EcoCampus initiative will transform NTU’s 200-hectare campus into a super test bed for research projects in cutting-edge green technologies. They range from smart building systems and renewable energy, to electric transportation and water conservation technologies, complementing the vibrant sustainability R&D community in the adjoining 50-hectare CleanTech Park developed by JTC Corporation.

EcoCampus will commence with 12 key research projects. Companies, organisations and entrepreneurs are invited to submit and test bed their innovative green ideas at the NTU campus or JTC’s CleanTech Park. The $20 million initiative will be funded by a combination of EDB’s Living Lab programme, research grants and contributions from industry partners, JTC and NTU.
