Energy Storage Systems
Energy Storage System (ESS) is a game-changing technology which has the ability to store energy for later use. ESS not only addresses solar intermittency but also enhances grid resilience by actively managing mismatches between electricity supply and demand. These advantages are key enablers for Singapore to maximise solar as part of the Singapore Green Plan 2030.
Accelerating Energy Storage for
EMA launched the ACCESS programme to
facilitate ESS adoption in Singapore by promoting use cases and business
models. The programme also looks at securing space, marrying demand with
solution, and facilitating regulatory approvals for ESS deployment. ACCESS is led
by EMA in collaboration with partners. Please refer to the ACCESS programme
for more information or email us at EMA_Enterprise_Development@ema.gov.sg
Beyond the ACCESS programme, EMA has also launched the following initiatives to facilitate the deployment of ESS in Singapore.
| Past Initiatives
Storage Grant Call (2015)
||Catalyses cost-effective energy storage innovations that can be effectively
deployed in Singapore.
|ESS Technology Roadmap
||Provides insights on the global technological development and economics of ESS technologies, as well as recommendations to accelerate the deployment of ESS in Singapore. The Roadmap can be accessed here.
|Handbook for ESS
||Outlines the various applications for ESS in Singapore, with a focus on Battery ESS (BESS). It also serves as a comprehensive guide for those who wish to install BESS in Singapore. The Handbook can be accessed here.
|Electrical Energy Storage Systems Technical Reference (TR 77)
||Provides guidelines on planning, performance assessment, risk assessment and safety consideration for deploying and maintaining storage systems in Singapore. The TR 77 is available from the Singapore Standards eShop. Learn more about Singapore Standards and Technical References, and where to purchase them.
