EMA-Shell Partnership

Nurturing Local Energy Start-ups

EMA and Shell Singapore signed a Memorandum of Understanding at EMA's Energy Innovation 2019 event to nurture local startups. This would help them build capabilities in areas such as renewable energy, distributed power generation, and Energy Storage Systems (ESS). The partnership was renewed in 2021.

EMA and Shell will jointly provide support through the Shell Startup Engine Programme. It is a global innovation programme to build up capabilities of local energy startups and power their growth through leveraging Shell's expertise and network. Participating startups also have the opportunity to apply for post-programme R&D funding from EMA to further develop their solutions. More information on the programme and application details can be found at the Shell Startup Engine website. 

To date, three projects have been awarded under the EMA-Shell Startup Partnership.

EMA-Shell Joint Request for Proposal

EMA and Shell launched a Joint Request for Proposal (RFP) on 17 July 2020 to design and deploy battery energy storage systems (BESS) with improved cooling and fire safety technologies, fast electric vehicle chargers (EVCs), and to implement a smart energy management system that integrates distributed energy resources at three Shell service stations.

The solution will be the first-of-its-kind to be deployed in service stations in Singapore. The Joint RFP provides opportunities for the industry, especially Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs), to work alongside Shell to testbed their solutions at Shell service stations and build track records to enhance their competitiveness. The outcome of the grant call is as follows:
