BlueScope has committed to a 12 percent reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity by 2030 and the increased use of renewable energy across its facilities. As part of this commitment, NS BlueScope Lysaght Singapore Pte Ltd will dedicate its rooftop for the installation of a 500 kWp solar project. Urban Renewables is contracted to supply the solar power and will own and manage the solar asset.

As part of the partnership, Urban Renewables will also provide free EV Charging stations, under the Urban Charge brand, at the company’s facilities in Singapore and will further implement energy efficiency improvements.

“This collaboration with Urban Renewables introduces a very exciting opportunity for us to improve the overall energy efficiency of our operations, and marks an important milestone towards our sustainability objective” said Koh Boon Hong, the Country President of Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei.

Edgare Kerkwijk, Managing Director of Urban Renewables, added that the project is a good example of where an industrial facility can be turned into a more sustainable business and can help to achieve carbon neutrality and that Urban Renewables will continue to scale up its investments in renewable energy in Singapore as part of its climate pledge to develop 100 MW by the end of 2025.
