SUSTAINABLE CREDENTIALS INGENIA ISSUE 58 MARCH 2014 – pg 25-31

pg 31 – At the start of the project, the Singapore government instructed the design team to endeavour to make the carbon emissions from the conditioning systems no worse than would be experienced in a modern Singapore office building – a major challenge considering the demanding requirements of the plants and the high light levels required. The resulting system ensured that the displaced carbon from onsite renewable energy generation (biomass, supplemented by photovoltaic power) totals 2,050 tonnes of CO2 per year, compared
with carbon emissions from the cooling systems for conditioning the domes of 1,770 tonnes of CO2 annually.
