"Contributions to the Energy Sector" & “Innovation”
EMA has awarded a $6.2 million research grant to develop Singapore's capability to accurately forecast solar energy output. To mitigate the effects of solar intermittency and to keep the power supply stable, EMA’s power system operator will need to know the solar PV power output ahead of time in order to take appropriate actions to balance the grid.
EMA is launching a Regulatory Sandbox to enable the energy sector to test new products and services in the electricity and gas sectors. This will also allow EMA as the industry regulator to assess the impact of new products and services before deciding on the appropriate regulatory treatment.
