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 Singapore (ACCESS)

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 for enquiry.

Beyond the ACCESS programme, EMA has also launched the following initiatives to facilitate the deployment of ESS in Singapore. 
 Past Initiatives   Description  Downloads
Energy Storage Grant Call (2015) Catalyses cost-effective energy storage innovations that can be effectively deployed in Singapore. Media Release
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 Media Release
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.
