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 Institutes of Higher Learning/Research Institutes 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’s Energy Story.
