Singapore: Gateway to Linked Asia Power Grid?

Singapore is planning to import low-carbon electricity — a potential precursor to greater renewable power exchanges in Southeast Asia, where a proposal for grid interconnection has been languishing for years. Singapore will be issuing two tenders shortly to seek a total of up to 4 gigawatts of “low-carbon” electricity imports by 2035 to meet around 30% of its electricity requirements, the country’s Energy Market Authority (EMA) announced Monday. While the island nation's own energy needs may not be significant, the country could serve as a gateway into the much larger Southeast Asian market for ambitious multigigawatt renewable energy proposals seeking to export solar power in the Asia-Pacific.
