Sunseap Solutions Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore's leading clean energy provider Sunseap Group, has entered into a joint-venture with Taiwan Secom Co Ltd, one of Taiwan's largest security service providers, to expand its integrated energy efficiency solutions into Taiwan.

The joint-venture company, Sunseap Solutions Taiwan Ltd, will provide Environmental Sustainability Design (ESD) consultancy, Energy Performance Contracting (EPC), and distribution of Optigreen® Green Roof components in Taiwan.

The Energy Performance Contracting scheme focuses on the retrofitting of existing lighting and Air-Conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation (ACMV) systems to energy efficient systems so as to generate operational cost savings for its clients. The contract tenure ranges from five to eight years.

There is zero upfront capital expenditure required from the client as Sunseap Solutions Taiwan fully finances the retrofit. Resultant energy savings are co-shared with the client over the contract tenure, during which Sunseap Solutions Taiwan will provide the full warranty for the equipment. This strong value proposition allows clients to improve energy efficiency and generate operational cost savings. They will also get a brand-new set of equipment which are fully warrantied throughout the contract duration. This service allows clients to save approximately 25% off their energy bills.

Green roofs are essential to improving the life span of the building's waterproofing membrane and regulating thermal transfer by lowering the Roof Envelope Thermal Transfer (RETV) value. The RETV calculates how much heat is gained through thermal transmission through the roof slab. By lowering the RETV, heat gained through the roof slab is reduced, thus lowering the cooling requirements of the immediate floor below the roof. This indirectly leads to savings on air-conditioning energy consumption.

Mr Frank Phuan, Co-Founder and CEO of Sunseap, said: "We are excited to partner such a well-established company like Taiwan SECOM to introduce our energy efficient services to the Taiwanese market. By being able to tap into Taiwan SECOM's network of over 10,000 buildings, we look forward to helping the commercial sector in Taiwan do their part in protecting the environment while saving on their electricity bills and becoming more sustainable in their businesses."

The joint-venture's first three projects are underway. The first - a green roof on Taiwan Secom Tiding Boulevard building – is slated for completion by late October 2019. The other two projects are Energy Performance Contracts for lighting and ACMV at LeeBao Neihu building and LeeBao Taichung building.

Taiwan Secom indicates "Sunseap is a leading clean energy provider in the region. We are pleased to be working with them to help Taiwan become greener. Our services bring forth a strong value proposition to the Taiwanese market where it is made up of predominantly older buildings. Our services allow clients to have a brand-new set of equipment, improved energy efficiency, lowered operational costs, without worrying about equipment maintenance."

Sunseap is one of the largest and most established players in the solar energy industry in the region. It has a pipeline of projects in Cambodia, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Australia.
