The GBIC-Building Energy Efficient Demonstrations Scheme (GBIC-Demo) serves to demonstrate novel energy-efficient technologies that have not been widely implemented locally in actual operating buildings. GBIC-Demo aims to link up developers and building owners with technology providers and system integrators in order to establish platforms where industry can test and showcase these technologies to generate local performance data for verification carried out by a research or verification parnter. In doing so, we hope that these demonstrated technologies, if successful, would be replicated in other buildings and eventually, commercialised.

Prior to submission, the project team is encouraged to schedule a meeting with the GBIC administrators for a briefing and quick assessment.

Applicants who are keen to explore funding under the GBIC-Demo should complete the attached Pre-Application Form to facilitate the preliminary evaluation of the feasibility of the proposal.

Proposals submitted to BCA shall be evaluated by the appointed Project Evaluation Panel (PEP) comprising of members from the GBIC Programme, BCA's Green Mark Departments and/or any partners whom may be co-opted at any point in time. The evaluation will be based on the eligibility criteria.

Shortlisted applications will be considered for funding where the quantum shall be decided based on the following criteria:

  • Novelty of the technology;
  • Potential for replication and commercialization;
  • Energy savings;
  • Ease of maintenance.
In addition, the applications may be subjected to further screening to determine if a similar project had received funding from other agencies.

It would take on average about 3 month to process the application form. However, in some cases, more time may be required for the purposes of verification and seeking clarification.
