SP, CapitaLand and Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly study the use of integrated energy solutions to power data centres. CapitaLand’s data centre is the first to pilot in Singapore under SP’s Energy Partnership Programme. The integrated energy solutions will potentially include a combination of solar photovoltaic, green hydrogen and energy storage amongst others. These will be further enhanced with smart technologies to increase energy efficiency and effectiveness.
The study covered under the MOU will initially focus on developing solutions to power CapitaLand’s flagship data centre, 9 Tai Seng Drive with green energy. The feasibility study results planned for the second half of 2021, would potentially be applicable to benefit other data centres in Singapore.

This collaboration is the first under SP’s Energy Partnership Programme. The programme aims to help corporates meet their green ambitions and overcome energy-related business challenges using integrated energy solutions. Leveraging SP’s technical expertise in smart energy solutions, research and testing will be undertaken at SP’s Concept Lab. Corporates enjoy the benefits of researching and testing the viability of sustainable solutions before advancing to real-world applications.
Mr Chuah Kee Heng, Chief Executive Officer, Sustainable Energy Solutions, SP Group, said: “We are pleased to work with CapitaLand and Sembcorp to green CapitaLand’s data centres. Under SP Group’s Energy Partnership Programme, we provide expertise and a conducive environment to help corporates solve their energy challenges and contribute to a low carbon, smart energy Singapore.”
