Cooling Singapore: Proposed projects – extended collaborations.
Friday, June 1. 2018
2.00 pm - 5.00 pm
Singapore ETH-centre (SEC) (Level 6), 1 Create Way, 138602 Singapore
The objectives of this preview and scoping session are to
- Present a summary of the key findings of the Cooling Singapore project and their implications to government agencies; and
- To discuss the need for further research and widening the scope for the next phase of Cooling Singapore. In addition, this event represents a networking opportunity between Cooling Singapore, its current and prospective partners, as well as government agency representatives.
Workshop on strategy assessment
The workshop aims to provide an overview on the activities and findings of the Cooling Singapore project during the last 12 months. Especially, the results of the dialogues with agencies will be presented, together with outcomes of the thermal comfort mitigation strategies assessment. Furthermore, two key experts have been invited to amplify their experience on involving urban climate in the city planning. Finally, the definitions of the roadmap to mitigate the Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improve the Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore will be presented. All in all, the workshop will serve as a platform to push forward awareness and discussion on UHI and OTC in Singapore from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Time: 9.00 am - 5.00 pm
Workshop 'toward a roadmap'
The workshop aimed to help defining key elements of a roadmap with the horizon 2030 and 2050. Current and future considerations on infrastructure, technology, policies and regulatory frameworks were discussed. Solutions to mitigate the urban heat island effect and improve the outdoor thermal comfort were analysed among the multi-disciplinary audience.

CREATE 10th anniversary symposium
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE), a symposium took place featured research highlights from CREATE centres over the past years. We celebrated the successes and fruitful partnerships that the different CREATE centres have forged with academia, government agencies and industry. Prof. Dr. Peter Edwards was invited to give a keynote presentation about Cooling Singapore, the first intra-CREATE project.
Date: December 1. 2017
Time: 9.45 am - 10.00 am
Workshop on mitigation strategies
The workshop aimed to start the collaboration between the UHI task force members and the Cooling Singapore research team. This first workshop provided an overview on the activities planned by the Cooling Singapore project. The catalogue of strategies was presented and discussed together with government agencies. Also, the direction of the modelling work for the selected test areas was presented.
Date: July 3. 2017
Time: 9.00 am - 5.00 pm
A catalogue of strategies for cooling Singapore
The catalogue of strategies aims to give a comprehensive overview of strategies and measures that are available to mitigate UHI and improve OTC. The catalogue contains 86 measures, grouped in 7 clusters. Each measure describes its impact towards UHI and OTC, its applicability in the tropical climate, its integration into urban planning, and its current research status. With this catalogue, we hope to support the urban planning and design process with actionable knowledge.
Mitigation strategies survey
The Cooling Singapore (CS) team asked scientist and researchers from different fields of expertise to complete a 10 - 15 minutes questionnaire and identify strategies to reduce Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improve Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore.
Assessment models/tools survey
The Cooling Singapore (CS) team asked scientist and researchers from different fields of expertise to complete a 10 minutes questionnaire and identify simulation models/tools to assess the microclimate impact of strategies to reduce Urban Heat Island (UHI) and improve Outdoor Thermal Comfort (OTC) in Singapore.
