EMA-SIT Partnership

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 generation technologies.
