In partnership with Envision Digital, a global decarbonisation software leader headquartered in Singapore, SMRT Trains will reduce Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) energy consumption in our train stations through adjusting setpoints with predictive Artificial Intelligence (AI), while maintaining commuter comfort.
HVAC is part of SMRT Trains’ Intelligent Facilities Management (IFM) initiative, implemented to reduce our annual energy consumption at train stations. The reduction is equivalent to the average annual energy usage of about 1,500 four-room public housing flats.
Mr Lam Sheau Kai, President, SMRT Trains, said: “Trains is the greenest mode of public commute in Singapore. We are expanding our green initiatives through Intelligent Facilities Management in stations to lower energy usage, further reducing our carbon footprint for a greener Singapore.”
With IFM and other green/sustainable initiatives, SMRT moves closer towards our vision of achieving net zero carbon equivalent by 2050.
