Singapore’s energy sector is evolving, driven by technological advancements and climate change. Declining costs of clean energy have spurred investments, altering the way we generate, distribute and use energy. To enable a sustainable 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 the Singapore Energy Transition.
  • 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 records and international competitiveness through strategic partnerships.

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