Singapore’s energy sector is being disrupted, driven by technological advancements and climate change. Declining costs of clean energy have also spurred investments, altering the way we generate, distribute and use energy. To enable a greener, decentralised and digital energy future for Singapore, EMA will continue to work with the industry and research community to: 

  • Catalyse Research & Innovation: To enable the integration of more clean energy into our power system, help reduce energy demand and strengthen grid resilience in support of Singapore Green Plan 2030.
  • Support Enterprise Development: To strengthen the translation of ideas into new market opportunities and nurture a vibrant energy ecosystem.
  • Facilitate Deployment of Promising Solutions: To address industry-relevant challenges, and help our local enterprises build track record and international competitiveness through strategic partnerships.

Watch two videos on how EMA has been working with the industry and research community to co-create innovative energy storage systems (ESS) (link) and digital solutions (link) to achieve Singapore Green Plan 2030. The Project Showcase (link) also provides a list of R&D projects that EMA has supported.
