Singapore EXPO on a Mission to Achieve Net Zero by 2024

Singapore EXPO, the country’s largest purpose-built meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions facility, is taking firm strides towards achieving net zero by 2024 with the largest single-site solar rooftop installation in Singapore, as well as the development of the largest electric vehicle charging hub in the eastern part of the city-state.

The projects are a significant boost to the venue’s sustainability infrastructure and will enable it to become Asia’s first MICE venue running on clean energy.

With over 17,000 photovoltaic panels installed on the rooftops of 10 exhibition halls and convention wing, Singapore EXPO would be the country’s largest single-site solar panel installation at a total estimated size of about 6.5 football fields.

The installation is expected to be completed in October 2023 and once completed, it will replace conventional energy consumption at Singapore EXPO with renewable energy.

As events and communities return to Singapore EXPO, the venue is also installing 20 Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging points at Singapore EXPO’s car parks, making this the largest charging hub in the eastern part of Singapore.

“We are glad to partner with Singapore Expo in their sustainability journey. We want to deliver more and cleaner energy solutions, and electric mobility is one of the solutions that can meet the growing demand for transport in a lower-carbon world,” said Doong Shiwen, General Manager of Shell Mobility Singapore.
