StorHub, which operates 13 self-storage facilities in Singapore, has installed clean-energy solutions at nine of its locations, including smart air-conditioning, green roofing and solar power. The company will also establish electric-vehicle charging stations at two sites. The efforts are in line with Green Plan 2030, a government initiative to advance the country’s commitment to sustainability, according to a press release.
StorHub has partnered with clean-energy service supplier Sunseap Group Pte Ltd. The air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems use smart technology to detect and optimize energy consumption while maintaining building temperature. The green-roof installations are designed to reduce heat transmission by up to 90%. The solar-panel systems are expected to generate a combined 1.8 gigawatt hours of renewable energy each year, the release stated.
“StorHub is pleased to be working closely with Sunseap on various green technologies and solutions by integrating cleaner energy into our business operations, and achieving our goal in reducing carbon emissions and a low carbon footprint toward a greener and more sustainable Singapore,” said StorHub CEO Luigi La Tona.
Sunseap specializes in solar energy. It’s completed projects at more than 1,500 Singapore locations, including commercial and industrial buildings, and public-housing estates, according to its website.
Launched in 2003, StorHub has self-storage facilities across Singapore in Bukit Batok, Changi, Hougang, Kallang, Tampines, Toa Payoh and Woodlands. Its portfolio contains more than 10,000 units.
