What is REAP ? REAP PowerSeraya REAP (Responsible Energy Advocates Program) A sustainability program wholly sponsored by PowerSeraya with the aim of developing tertiary students to be energy advocates in Singapore – to raise awareness on energy conservation, to implement energy solutions for households and to engage in project work for the benefit of the wider community. Jointly developed by PowerSeraya in partnership with NEA (National Environment Agency) and South West CDC (Community Development Council).
REAP for Tertiary Students REAP PowerSeraya Draws upon the energy and passion of youths today on the issue of climate change by nurturing tertiary students to be energy advocates in raising awareness and taking action on energy conservation. We welcome the participation of tertiary students to make this a meaningful and sustainable program that benefit not only themselves but also the community they come in contact with. Only 30 tertiary students are selected each year to be in the REAP program.

3 Components of REAP REAP PowerSeraya Students will go through 3 components to complete the REAP program. Students undergo 4 day workshop to be educated in sustainable development, climate change & energy, behavioural change, energy audit Workshop starts in Jun 12. Students will assist selected households in the South West district to reduce their energy consumption for a 3 month monitoring period (Jul to Sep 12). Students will work with an estimated 3 to 5 households. Prizes for winning households and students. SW CDC will assist PowerSeraya to screen suitable households and facilitate arrangements for house visits. Students will embark on energy conservation projects for a 3 month period (Oct to Dec 12). Projects dont necessarily need to be linked to the community service component. Projects dont have to be technical in nature. It can also cover the social change aspects of energy conservation. No requirement for projects to be implemented. Choice of pre-defined projects by PowerSeraya or students preferred projects subject to approval. Project Work CommunityService Education

Students are given Freedom & Flexibility in REAP REAP PowerSeraya As this is a holistic program, students need to complete all 3 components of the REAP. However, we do recognize that students have to juggle between their studies and other commitments and have thus incorporated some freedom and flexibility into the REAP program. For example, For the community component, students are give free play as to the frequency of visits to the households and the means to achieve the greatest energy savings during the 3 month energy monitoring period. For the project work component, students can leverage on existing school projects and modify them for the REAP. However, in the spirit of this program, students must demonstrate that their projects help the community (e.g. schools, households, businesses) on energy conservation.
