Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), Enterprise Singapore, and the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS) have joined forces to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups innovate, grow and thrive in the competitive energy sector.
Serving as a one-stop hub, the new EcoLabs Centre of Innovation for Energy (EcoLabs) will enable these companies to further develop their clean energy-related innovations and business ideas, and commercialise them into technologies that will benefit industry and society.
Officially unveiled today by Mr Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry, and Education, EcoLabs is the ninth Centre of Innovation in Singapore and the first for the energy sector.
To accelerate product development, EcoLabs will provide SMEs and start-ups with multidisciplinary technical support, cutting edge research equipment, and access to the latest scientific research in clean energy.
The national-level centre will work with corporate partners and investors to provide companies with up to 30 public and private-sector test-bedding sites, ranging from high-tech lab facilities to specialised test centres, to safely trial their ideas and innovations in a controlled environment. Business acceleration support, including strategic advisory, investment pitching and networking sessions will also be provided to SMEs and start-ups.
