About the Energy Efficiency Award Challenge
The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge was organized by the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce in June 2018. The Award Challenge intended to promote successful German-Singaporean partnerships in the building sector. The five projects that have been selected show how innovative German energy-efficient solutions have led to increased building quality, reduced energy costs and lower CO2 emissions levels in Singaporean buildings.
The one-day event comprised two site visits in the morning, a workshop in the afternoon and an evening reception. At the evening reception three of the five projects that made it to the finals have been awarded for the use energy-efficient technologies “made in Germany”.
The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge is part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to recognise the positive impact German solutions have on Singapore’s efforts to become more energy efficient.
