Singapore’s power market is in motion. A total of 25 power providers – and growing – want a slice of the pie and are introducing a continuous stream of new offers, technologies and business models to the market in preparation for next year’s complete liberalization. It is the power consumers that will benefit, because the tough competition will provide them with numerous new possibilities.
Solar energy quadrupled
Although Singapore’s government does not intend to subsidize solar energy, its decision to install solar panels on 27 government buildings and feed the power they generate into the grid is decisively contributing to the boom. In the last three years alone, solar energy production has quadrupled, as the Singaporean newspaper The Business Times reports. To ensure that the development of solar energy proceeds in an orderly manner, as with any other renewable energy, the Energy Market Authority (EMA) will have to adjust the regulatory framework.
How big of a role foreign market participants will play is one of many questions that the EMA will have to clarify. The future of energy promises a lot of change in Singapore too.
