Issue 1 | JANUARY 2012
Foreword
Developments in the past year remind us of the global energy landscape's volatility. Rising oil prices and geopolitical unrest underscore the importance of forging new partnerships and taking steps to mitigate the impact of increasing energy prices and supply shocks.

Closer to home, the Energy Market Authority (EMA) will continue working with our partners and stakeholders to achieve our vision of a Smart Energy, Sustainable Future. To do so, it is critical that we engage and update our key stakeholders.

We released the inaugural Singapore Energy Statistics publication and started the Distinguished Speakers Programme and Energy Forum last year.

These were useful platforms to provide updates on the energy sector and also opportunities for industry representatives to share their views and experiences. It is in the same spirit that EMA has decided to start a corporate newsletter.

Entitled "ON", this quarterly newsletter will feature developments in Singapore's energy sector, updates on EMA's projects and initiatives, industry leaders' insights and opinion pieces on energy-related topics.

In this issue, we are honoured to have Mr Choo Chiau Beng, CEO of Keppel Corporation and Non-Resident Ambassador to Brazil, share some of his insights into Singapore's energy landscape and his thoughts on the sector's outlook.

EMA has come a long way with strong support from our industry partners, union leaders, colleagues from other government agencies and not forgetting our former and current staff. Looking ahead, we will continue to work closely with the industry to shape Singapore's energy future together.

I hope you will enjoy the newsletter, and may I also take this opportunity to wish everyone a successful and energetic
year ahead.
