The Energy Market Authority (EMA) has announced that Singapore will be issuing two requests for proposals for up to 4 GW of low carbon electricity imports. This will, EMA said, represent around 30 per cent of its energy by 2035.

EMA said that first request for proposal will be launched in November to begin importing up to 1.2 GW by 2027. The second request for proposal will be issued in the second quarter of 2022, with 2.8 GW to be imported by 2035.

EMA said that it recognised that non-renewable sources of power may be needed to make the imports commercially viable or available as baseload power. EMA said: “For example, some thermal generation may be needed to smoothen intermittency from solar generation.”
