11 May 2021

    The Energy Market Authority of Singapore (EMA) and the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) of Hong Kong, China held their inaugural bilateral workshop to strengthen knowledge sharing and energy cooperation between the two energy regulatory agencies.

2. This bilateral exchange follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Energy Cooperation between EMA and EMSD at the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) in October last year. Both regulators exchanged views on liquified natural gas and hydrogen developments in their respective markets.

3. Mr Ngiam Shih Chun, Chief Executive of EMA, said: “Today’s exchange was a good opportunity for both EMA and EMSD to have a discussion on the use of liquified natural gas and hydrogen for our energy systems. These exchanges will enhance our overall regulatory functions and we look forward to more opportunities to share best practices on energy sustainability and resilience.”

4. Mr Eric Pang, Managing Director, EMSD, said: “The Government is updating the “Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan” to set out the roadmap for carbon neutrality before 2050. EMSD is looking forward to introducing the new roadmap for carbon neutrality, sharing the new low-carbon technologies, and working together with EMA along our shared vision in advancing towards a low-carbon society, and for a green and sustainable future for generations to come.”

5. Both regulators will continue their discussions at a bilateral dialogue to be held at the sidelines of the Singapore International Energy Week 2021 from 25 to 29 October.
