Aver Asia Partners with Ampd Energy to Cut Carbon Emissions at Singapore Construction Sites
Ampd Energy has teamed up with Aver Asia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation, in a move aimed at displacing thousands of diesel generators and reducing carbon emissions at construction sites across Singapore.
Despite pandemic constraints, Ampd Energy has successfully deployed over 40 units of its battery energy storage system (BESS) across more than 25 construction sites in Singapore, continuing to ramp up its business in the country through Aver Asia.
Ampd Energy’s BESS – called the ‘Enertainer’ – is a next-generation alternative to diesel generators which are commonly used at construction sites. These diesel generators are known to be highly pollutive, releasing not just carbon dioxide into the atmosphere but also air pollutants and excessive noise.
The Enertainer, on the other hand, is a plug-and-play, fully automated, fully electric battery system that can power the most demanding construction tasks including moving heavy equipment like cranes, hoists and welders. It is much cleaner to operate with up to 90% lower carbon emissions, up to 99% lower air quality emissions, and 30 times quieter noise levels, according to Ampd Energy.
The 40 Enertainers operating in Singapore today prevent over 8,000 t of carbon dioxide emissions from the real estate and construction sector each year. Ampd Energy believes that at scale, the Enertainer can eliminate 400,000 t of carbon dioxide every year from the construction sector alone – comparable to the emissions of 160,000 four-room HDB flats.
According to statistics from Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA), the building sector accounts for one-fifth of all carbon emissions in the country, and sustainable construction has gained urgency in recent years with the government implementing a host of measures including Green Mark certification and grants, to help the industry go clean and green.
