Simonn Ng Yan Cheng
With a keen eye for business opportunities long before they become apparent and are either too late, or too costly for investing, Simonn saw, much earlier on, the huge potential returns in the nascent energy efficient, energy renewal industry in Singapore and the region.
He drew a similarity in companies deriving substantial cost savings from being energy efficient, to that of generating profits from their normal business activities – they both go straight to the bottom line!
He advocates that the sooner companies realize this and adopt energy-saving systems in their operations, the better it is for them, as they would, apart from achieving an additional source for company profits, be contributing to a regenerative healthy environment at work, whilst helping to reduce the national and global carbon footprints.
His businesses range from property investments and developments in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Australia and the United Kingdom, to continually upgrading and improving his financial app that has, since its launch, monetarily benefited over 500,000 players across more than a dozen countries, including South East Asia, Hong Kong, China, Australia, Italy, UK and the US. Currently, its global appeal and popularity continue unabated.
Lee Eng Lock
Lee was educated at Surrey University, England under a Colombo Plan Scholarship, where he studied naval architecture before gravitating to energy services.
For more than twenty-five years, he dedicated his life to the continuous improvement to the design and engineering of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), showing the rest of the world how much energy could be saved through good engineering, innovative design, and attention to details.
Regarded as the pioneer in very accurate long-term measurement and monitoring for mechanical plants, Lee’s basic philosophy on energy efficiency is grounded on two principles: you cannot manage what you do not measure; and what gets measured gets done.
His outstanding work in energy conservations and achieving greater energy efficiency in buildings has won him numerous awards, including the
Lee’s many achievements and awards for energy efficiency include an invitation from Lawrence Berkeley National Library, California as a visiting lecturer and speaker in 2009; serving as a former member of the technical committee of USA-based International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol; holding the position of Co-Chair of Working Group of SS591: 2013 – Code of practice for long term measurement of central chilled water system energy efficiency; attaining a Bronze medal in the 2004 Asian Innovation Awards for the re-designing of Grand Hyatt, Singapore’s the HVAC system which resulted in S$1.1 million annual savings; and garnering the prestigious “Champion of Energy Efficiency Award” from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
Er Steven Kang is the Managing Director of Measurement & Verification Pte Ltd. A graduate of the National University of Singapore with an Honours degree in Mechanical Engineering, Steven also holds a Graduate Diploma in Marketing from the Marketing Institute of Singapore.
Before joining Measurement & Verification, Steven was Mechanical Engineer at Singapore’s Public Works Department before becoming Business Development Director at Trane and at Johnson Controls Inc, where he spearheaded several successful energy solution initiatives.
Steven was involved in the design of hyper-efficient HVAC system for Platinum-rated Green Buildings and Data Centres and is a member of several Green and Energy Efficiency advisory committees. He has spoken at various forums on HVAC designs, energy optimization and green buildings. He has also spearheaded innovative research in energy efficiency in several government funded R&D projects.
Appointed as Ambassador for the Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority, he also sits on the committee for Singapore Energy Auditor Registrar, Singapore Standard on Chiller Plant Measurement and Verification (SS591), Singapore Standard on Air-conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation in Buildings (SS553) and was part of the technical review committee of Vietnam Green Building Council’s Sustainable Building Assessment System.
