Despite their youthful appearance, 19-year-old Ren Kejia and 21-year-old Eng Zi Guang possess ambitions that would put many of their older peers to shame. With a scholarship from the Energy Market Authority (EMA) in their bags and a spring in their step, these two scholars hope to change the energy landscape in Singapore, one light bulb at a time.
