Energy Efficiency Technology Centre

In collaboration with the National Environment Agency (NEA), the Energy Efficiency Technology Centre (EETC) aims to be the leading technology innovation centre that supports local Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in energy efficiency initiatives.

EETC aspires to promote the development of energy efficiency capability and the adoption of new technologies in the local energy ecosystem for the industrial sectors.

Value to Industry

EETC supports local industries in energy efficiency initiatives and helps to address both short and long-term needs in the local EE ecosystem through the following:

  • Catalyse EE improvements at SMEs through the provision of energy consultancy services.
  • Develop a pipeline of engineering undergraduates in industrial energy efficiency.
  • Upskill existing engineers or EE practitioners through practical hands-on training courses.

What We Do

Catalyse Energy Efficiency Initiatives

We help SMEs be more competitive by reducing energy costs through low-cost high- quality energy assessments.

Co-create Innovative Solutions with Industry 

We provide energy consultancy services and actively collaborate with our industry partners to co-create innovative solutions to overcome current industry challenges.

Build Capability and Expertise

We offer the Energy Efficiency Upskilling Programme (EEUP) that provides practical, hands-on training to complement classroom-based knowledge for engineering professionals.

Energy Assessment for SMEs

EETC provides low-cost, high-quality energy assessments to SMEs. The energy assessment of industrial facilities owned by SMEs will be led by EETC energy specialists.
