S’pore to import electricity from Malaysia in pilot trial over 2 years
SINGAPORE – The little red dot wants a greener energy mix, and is taking multiple steps to achieve this – from an electricity import pilot with Malaysia to soaking up more sunshine at home and investing in research on emerging low-carbon technologies.
Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing on Monday (Oct 26) laid out the steps that Singapore will take to be a “bright green spark” for the world – a place where ideas and applications can be an inspiration and help to create more sustainable and higher quality living environments.
As part of its plans, Singapore hopes to tap green energy from around the region through regional power grids. The groundwork for this will be laid through an electricity import pilot with Malaysia for over two years.
