- $125,000 per facility for other facilities
Qualifying costs includes:
- Equipment and materials
- Professional services
- Software and IT services
Singapore GST is excluded
Cost of instruments and metering is not supported for new ventures with estimated annual energy consumption of ≥54TJ.

EMIS Project Features
The EMIS project should include the following features. Otherwise, justifications must be provided.
Tracking and monitoring
- Monitoring and tracking of energy performance based on suitable Energy Performance Indicators (e.g. kWh/ton production, kW/CMH) and relevant variables (e.g. temperature, pressure)
- Real-time monitoring to enable timely intervention
Reporting and alerts
- Customised reporting to different user levels
- Highlight inefficient performance in a timely manner and generate alerts to prompt users to take rectification action
Data capture and data analysis
- Capture data at appropriate intervals and stored for adequate period
- Include data analysis functions (e.g. regression analysis) to identify performance gaps and opportunities
Disbursement is on a reimbursement basis. Companies can claim the disbursement requests as follows:
- Disbursement of the first 80% of the grant upon commissioning of EMIS and submission of commissioning report
