E2F – Energy Assessment of existing facilities

Using a comprehensive suite of grants, the government encourages
energy efficient industrial practices.

The purpose is to encourage companies in the industrial sector to carry out energy assessments for their existing facilities to identify potential areas for energy efficiency improvement.

NG is an Accredited ESCO that can assist with this grant.

Purpose

Encourages companies in the industrial sector* to carry out energy assessments for their existing facilities to identify potential areas for energy efficiency improvement.

Eligibility criteria
  • The owner or operator of the manufacturing facility must be registered in Singapore.
  • The industrial facility for which the energy assessment is being carried out must be located in Singapore.
  • Energy audits of relevant business activities of registered corporations under the Energy Conservation Act are not eligible for application from 1 Jan 2020.
  • The capabilities of the selected energy consultants** should be thoroughly assessed to ensure that they match the needs and requirements of your facility.

  • The detailed energy assessment should cover the whole plant or facility. Manufacturing equipment and processes may be excluded from the assessment. For large facilities, a partial assessment covering a complete system or part of the facility may be considered. Besides energy assessments, process plants can also carry out long-term monitoring of individual system components and overall systems to identify efficiency degradation. This is known as Energy Performance Monitoring. Such projects are also eligible for funding under E2F.
