Certification Course on Driving Energy Performance in Super Low Energy (SLE) Buildings

Event code: 80085

Under the Singapore Green Building Masterplan (SGBMP), more ambitious targets to green the Built Environment sector has been set. The Masterplan, dubbed “80-80-80 in 2030” captures our collective commitment to pursue more ambitious standards in our Built Environment to meet global climate change commitments. It targets greening 80% of Singapore’s buildings by Gross Floor Area (GFA) by 2030, 80% of new developments (by GFA) to be Super Low Energy (SLE) buildings from 2030, and 80% improvement in energy efficiency to best-in-class green buildings by 2030. As such, the BCA Green Mark 2021 (GM: 2021) places stronger focus on outcome-based indicators, covers wider sustainability issues and introduces a new SLE energy efficiency standards for residential buildings.

This course aims to keep professionals abreast on the raising standards in energy performance of our built environment as well as the latest GM:2021 requirements to achieve SLE building standards. Industry practitioners will be equipped with knowledge to design and adopt innovative energy solutions towards an integrative and sustainable urban system. At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

• Apply GM: 2021 requirements to achieve SLE building standards;
• Determine sustainable strategies and technologies that could push the energy efficiency envelope to mainstream SLE buildings; and
• Apply best practices in the implementation of key technologies towards achieving SLE buildings.
