Digitalisation plays a big role in shaping tomorrow’s energy future. EMA has been working with the industry and research community to co-create innovative solutions for the smarter use of energy and greater efficiency.

As Professor Wen Yonggang points out: “Singapore is projected to see its data center energy consumption increase by 2030. Managing energy demand and supporting this energy sector are thus of paramount importance. Our solution integrates with advanced algorithms to quickly pinpoint bottlenecks in the system and targets cooling at the specific points to improve energy efficiency of the data center.“
