Google signs multi-year renewable energy deal with Sembcorp
This includes energy generated from 500 housing flats with rooftop solar installations.
Google has signed a multi-year deal with Sembcorp for them to provide a total energy solution, with a particular focus on locally-sourced renewable power to support Google Singapore’s operations, according to an announcement.
The deal includes energy generated from close to 500 public housing flats with rooftop solar installations. The solar power generated goes directly into the electricity supply of our operations, thanks to a unique three-party collaboration with both the power retailer Sembcorp Power, and the solar developer Sembcorp Solar.
The deal is said to be pioneering the seamless integration of solar power directly into an existing power supply, in which Sembcorp and Google hope is a positive first step towards making renewable energy more widely accessible for all Singaporean energy users in the future.
The green energy deal in Singapore is just a first small step for Google, and the search engine giant is still looking to do more not only in Singapore, but also in the rest of Southeast Asia and across the Asia Pacific region.
