ABOUT THE LECTURE
Singapore has a well-developed regulatory regime, ecosystem of solution providers and financing schemes to enable industry players to readily adopt energy efficiency initiatives. The plethora of options available, with or without capital investments, can be a source of confusion for decision makers and implementers alike. Common questions include ‘Where do I start?’, ‘What are the risks?’, ‘How much would an energy efficiency initiative boost my bottom line?’
The session starts by introducing energy savings opportunities in industrial facilities, driven by both structural and behavioural changes. It then deep dives into identification, prioritisation and financial evaluation of energy savings opportunities from a systems perspective. These steps take into account commonly-encountered business challenges. Real-life case studies from relevant industry sectors will be discussed to demonstrate the realisation of energy efficiency savings. Participants can expect to take away practical skills to implement energy efficiency initiatives in their workplace.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Dr Ulrika Wising
Head of Section
Sustainable Energy Use, Europe
DNV GL- Energy
Dr Ulrika Wising has a PhD in Chemical Engineering specialising in industrial energy efficiency as well as a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering with a process focus. She spent two years as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal, managing several large research projects to optimise the pulp and paper industry. Since 2007, she has done work for two consultancy firms in Belgium, in industries such as, steel, pulp and paper, chemicals, cement and refining. Her expertise is in helping companies optimise their processes through data validation, reconciliation, mining and modelling, both first principle and black box. In her tenure at consultancy firm Belsim sa, Dr Wising managed a €3M project for SATORP in Saudi Arabia where she oversaw project delivery, quality control and customer expectations in a newly-built refinery. At Belsim sa, she also worked with IBM in an international project to standardise energy data formats for upstream and downstream work in the oil and gas industry. During her time as CEO for Pepite sa, an SME with 20 employees in Belgium, Dr Wising successfully developed a consulting business in the field of energy cost reduction for heavy manufacturing and process industries. Her approach was based on data mining and methodologies such as kaizen, lean manufacturing and six sigma. For assessing the current state of energy culture in a company, three axes have to be taken into consideration: technology, management as well as mindset and capabilities.
The programme is pending accreditation by the Professional Engineers Board’s Continuing Professional Development Programme for Engineers in Singapore and Singapore Certified Energy Manager Registry’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme.

Launched in February 2004, the Professional Sharing Series (PSS) aims to promote a dynamic exchange of environmental knowledge amongst NEA and the public sector, as well as industries, academics and businesses. PSS is a knowledge-sharing platform where SEI periodically brings in professionals in their respective fields to share their expertise and perspectives on environmental issues. Topics that have been covered range from emerging environmental technologies and management approaches, to good environmental practices and environmental awareness.
