Keppel Infrastructure Holdings has entered into a master research collaboration agreement with the National University of Singapore (NUS). The agreement was made in a bid to bolster the former’s low-carbon energy innovation and translational research and development of solutions in smart grid, renewables and clean energy, as well as decarbonisation technologies.
The partnership will also provide educational and training opportunities for students in NUS. It will also provide opportunities for open collaboration with other ecosystem players such as start-ups, SMEs and researchers.
Under the agreement, Keppel Infrastructure and NUS will tap into the NUS Kent Ridge campus for the Keppel Infrastructure-NUS Low Carbon Living Laboratory, where they will create, test bed and scale up several trials including the deployment of commercially viable innovations in distributed energy management and the integration of solar photovoltaics (PV).
