Cleantech Park to be built in Jalan Bahar by 2010

Singapore is developing a new “Cleantech Park” in Jalan Bahar for clean technology research, prototyping and light manufacturing.

It will be sited next to the Nanyang Technological University, in northwest Singapore.

Deputy Prime Minister and Co-ordinating Minister for National Security, S Jayakumar, gave these details at the opening of the 2nd Singapore Energy Conference on Tuesday morning.

The first building there is expected to be up in 2010, and it aims to have low resource consumption, low waste and emissions through having green buildings.

The park will be a place to test-bed clean energy products and solutions, which can be marketed globally.

It was proposed by a panel of global experts in June, to help Singapore build up its capabilities as a global clean energy hub.

Separately, there are plans for an Eco-Park at the Semakau landfill, and a Danish company is investing half a million dollars on studying wind energy here.

The National Research Foundation has set aside S$170 million to facilitate energy research and testing.
