EMA and the Singapore Institute of
Technology (SIT) have collaborated on a S$20 million research programme
focusing on next-generation energy technologies. The EDGE programme or Exploiting
Distributed Generation Programme, focuses on building capabilities in
distributed energy technologies to prepare Singapore for an increasingly
decentralised energy landscape.
Under this partnership, companies and
researchers from Institutes of Higher Learning will have the opportunity to
participate in grant calls. This will be to develop innovative new technologies
and capabilities in the areas of micro-grid design, distributed energy
optimisation and management, and differentiated power-quality systems.
EDGE will also leverage test-bedding
platforms such as the Pulau Ubin Micro-grid Test-bed to raise the
commercialisation prospects of successful research outcomes. Grant awardees
will be able to implement their projects in a realistic and controlled
environment to test out the viability of their ideas. Successful solutions can
then be deployed on a larger scale at the upcoming SIT@Punggol campus
micro-grid when it is completed in 2023. SIT, with its Electrical Power
Engineering programme and future campus micro-grid sited in the heart of the
Punggol Digital District, is well-placed to push the frontiers in distributed
