NS BlueScopehas’s subsidiary NS BlueScope Lysaght Singapore Pte Ltd has signed a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with sustainable energy developer, URBAN RENEWABLES to provide clean solar energy sourced from a solar PV rooftop installation at the company’s industrial facility in Singapore.
BlueScope has decided and committed to a 12 percent reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG)emissions intensity by 2030 and the increased use of renewable energy across its facilities. Hence, NS BlueScope Lysaght Singapore Pte Ltd will dedicate its rooftop for the installation of a 500 kWp solar project.
Urban Renewables will supply the solar power and will own and manage the solar asset also. As part of the partnership, it will also provide free EV Charging stations, under the URBAN CHARGEbrand, at the company’s facilities in Singapore and will further implement energy efficiency improvements. This project will be a good example where an industrial facility can be turned into a more sustainable business and can help to achieve carbon neutrality and long term sustainability goals.
