JTC to plant more trees in Tuas to help companies cut energy costs

 

SINGAPORE: JTC Corporation will plant more trees in Tuas to help companies there cut energy costs, the company revealed at its tree-planting event at the Tuas Biomedical Park on Wednesday.

 

It said a joint study with the National University of Singapore showed that areas with more greenery experience cooler temperatures.

 

Shade from trees and rooftop greenery can bring down temperatures in buildings by nearly five degrees, which suggests that well-shaded buildings could see energy savings of more than 25 per cent.
