A*STAR’s Urban and Green Technologies Office (UGTO) coordinates, guides, and directs development of urban and green technologies in A*STAR, and at same time provides tech consultancy to public sector agencies and local enterprises. UGTO’s focus lies in four key areas: carbon capture and utilisation, energy efficiency, infrastructure and waste management. It is supported by A*STAR capabilities in areas such as life cycle assessment, modelling and simulation, and digital technologies.
