WATCH ON DEMAND: The ASEAN Power Grid & Green Imports to Singapore


Singapore expressed its ambition to attain zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century at COP26 in Glasgow, and has recently announced that it is considering 2050, seeking public feedback on the timeline. Recently, the EMA-commissioned 'Energy 2050 Committee' produced a study outlining a number of zero-carbon options for Singapore's power production.

It is apparent that green electricity imports via subsea interconnectors will be critical in assisting the country in meeting its goals. The EMA is already moving in this direction, having just issued a tender for 1.4GW of green imports.

Simultaneously, the ASEAN Centre for Energy has been developing the concept of a 'ASEAN Power Grid,' which would boost system dependability and facilitate regional energy sharing.
