Temburong Ecotown Development Phase 4
Temburong district is famous for its rich nature and is has become more attractive because of easy access from Bandar Seri Begawan since completion of the Temburong Bridge. If it is developed into an ecotown or smart city, Temburong will become one of the best examples of an ecotown or smart city in ASEAN. The research study of the project conducted in 2019–2020 focused on concrete and applicable aspects to support Temburong’s ecotown development – (i) preparation of energy efficiency and conservation guidelines for commercial buildings (both new buildings and retrofitting) in Temburong district; (ii) clean electricity supply to Temburong district through applying smart-grid technology; and (iii) a proposal for a smart transport system. An overall road map for the development of an ecotown in Temburong district was also included. ERIA hopes the Ministry of Energy of Brunei Darussalam will initiate development of an ecotown in Temburong District with the collaboration of the Temburong District Development Authority (AKDT) and makes use of this report.
