Our business operations demand a high level of energy consumption, hence we focus on consuming energy efficiently. We are committed to environmental sustainability and we embrace the use of technology to manage our environmental footprint.
One of Singapore's largest solar installations can be found in Universal Studios Singapore®’s Ancient Egypt Zone. This solar photovoltaic system is designed to generate a minimum of 550 megawatt hours of electricity annually to support the energy requirements of the ride. This is equivalent to powering 108 typical four-room Housing and Development Board flats while also reducing carbon emissions by 342 tonnes a year.
In 2015, 679,911 kWh of electricity was generated, which is equivalent to powering 135 Singapore 4-room HDB flats for a year.
We believe in going beyond the hour and one of our many daily green initiatives is keeping our air-conditioner temperatures between 24°C and 25°C. Green roof-top is also a common feature around the resort to lower urban air temperature and mitigate the heat island effect. It also provides an insulation to minimise heat gain in buildings. This reduces air-conditioning electricity usage by 20%.
