Anchorpoint, Liang Court named as first Energy Smart Retail Malls

Shopping malls Anchorpoint and Liang Court have been named the first two Energy Smart Retail Malls in Singapore by the National Environment Agency.

This is in recognition of their energy-saving measures to improve energy efficiency and lower operating costs.

Anchorpoint spent some S$455,000 to retrofit its chiller system. That helped to reduce its electricity consumption by 1,192 megawatt-hours every year, resulting in annual savings of about S$250,000.

Liang Court was recognised for reducing its electricity consumption by 500 megawatt-hours, saving the mall some S$100,000 every year.

NEA’s Energy Smart Retail Mall label is given to the top 25 per cent of participating shopping malls that have done well in maintaining energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality.

The Energy Smart Retail Mall label is an extension of the Energy Smart Building Labelling Programme, which until now comprised the Energy Smart Office and Energy Smart Hotel labels.
