The power grid of today and tomorrow is fast becoming a “thinking” grid that will be able to adjust and regulate its performance, incorporate varied power infrastructure and enable multiple business models. This new grid will have to balance these capabilities with the need for security and the impact of disruption. The Roundtable G session delved into trends and challenges of …

Four Key Takeaways from the SIEW Energy Insights Sessions. Oil Demand Could Peak as Early As 2020 With growth in GDP globally at around 3.6 per cent per year, oil demand has increased and crossed the milestone of an average 100 million barrels a day. However, growth in oil demand is slowing with the shift …

The construction tender for the two 1.5 megawatt-peak (MWp) floating solar PV systems on Bedok and Lower Seletar Reservoirs has been awarded to a local engineering firm BBR Greentech Pte Ltd. Construction works are in progress and the systems are expected to be operational by 2Q 2020. BBR Greentech was one of the companies that …

As digitalisation and new technologies continue to play a more prominent role in bridging the divide towards a cleaner energy future, data regulation is fast becoming an emerging priority. Our correspondent Lindy Tan explains. During the third session of the Singapore Energy Summit, Matthew Friedman, Chief Information Officer & Chief Digital Officer, Sembcorp Industries Ltd., …

SATS Ltd. (SATS), Asia’s leading provider of Food Solutions and Gateway Services, and Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp), a trusted global integrated energy company, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development of a suite of integrated solutions to help SATS reduce its environmental footprint across several facilities. This will bring SATS a step towards …

Our Energy Story will harness “4 Switches”, energy efficiency and the power of co-creation to create a sustainable energy future for Singapore. Singapore’s energy sector has come a long way since its early days. Over the last 50 years, we have moved from oil to natural gas for cleaner power generation. We are also starting …

Singapore scientists from NanoBio Lab (NBL) of A*STAR have developed a novel approach to prepare next-generation lithium-sulfur cathodes, which simplifies the typically time-consuming and complicated process for producing them. This represents a promising step towards the commercialization of lithium-sulfur batteries, and addresses industry’s need for a practical approach towards scaling up the production of new …

Globally, the energy sector is evolving, driven by technological advances and climate change. Distributed energy resources (DERs) such as solar and energy storage systems today complement traditional power plants which generate electricity centrally. Electricity produced from these energy resources at end users’ premises can be coordinated intelligently like a “single utility-scale power station”. Such a …

The recent years have been witness to various developments in the energy sector. With this, has it ever occurred to you what will be the state of the energy industry in the future? Multinational consultancy firm Arup discusses this matter in their recent paper, “Energy systems: A view from 2035 What will a future energy …

While solar and wind power are rapidly becoming cost-competitive with fossil fuels in areas with lots of sun and wind, they still can’t provide the 24/7 power we’ve become used to. At present, that’s not big a problem because the grid still features plenty of fossil fuel plants that can provide constant baseload or ramp …
