What is REAP? 4 REAP This programme is jointly developed by YTL PowerSeraya in partnership with the NEA (National Environment Agency) and South West CDC (Community Development Council). REAP (Responsible Energy Advocates Programme) A sustainability programme wholly sponsored by YTL 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.
3 Unique Features of REAP 5 #1 We are the 1st energy company to have an energy-related programme targeted at households with South West CDC. #3 The community service component of the REAP targets ‘above- the-line’ households that incorporates a combination of behavioural change and energy saving fittings to deliver reductions in household energy consumption. #2 REAP is the only 3P (People-Private-Public) sustainability programme, developed in partnership with NEA and South West CDC, that is centric on energy conservation and one that holistically integrates the components of education, community service and project work to benefit students as well as the community.

REAP for Tertiary Students 7 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 programme that benefit not only themselves but also the community they come in contact with. REAP Only 30 tertiary students are selected each year to be in the REAP programme…
3 Components of REAP 8 3 components to complete the REAP programme… Project Work Community Service Education Students will assist selected households in the South West district to reduce their energy consumption for a 3 month monitoring period (Jul to Sep 13). Students will work with an estimated 3 to 5 households. Prizes for winning households and students. SW CDC will assist YTL PowerSeraya to screen suitable households and facilitate arrangements for house visits. Students undergo a 4-day workshop. The workshop helps students to be educated in: Sustainable development Climate change & Energy Behavioural change Energy audit Workshop starts in June Students will embark on energy conservation projects for a 3 month period (Oct to Dec 13). Projects don’t necessarily need to be linked to the community service component. Projects don’t have to be technical in nature. Projects can also cover the social change aspects of energy conservation. No requirement for projects to be implemented. Choice of pre- defined projects by YTL PowerSeraya or student’s preferred projects subject to approval. REAP

Students are given Freedom & Flexibility in REAP 12 We know that you have to juggle between your studies and other commitments. So, to help you complete all 3 necessary components of the programme, we have incorporated freedom and flexibility into it! For example… For the community component, students are given free play 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) in their energy conservation. REAP
