During Singapore’s International Energy Week, Singapore’s Minister of State for Trade and Industry released the city-state’s ambition to invest in new energy solutions. For the next five years, nearly $ 500 million will be invested in clean energy.
According to Goh Chee Kiong, EDB’s executive director for clean technologies, this wave of green energy investments augurs well for Singapore to be the leader in the energy transition in Asia.
The REIDS project – Singapore’s Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator – supported by EDB, and led by the NTU – Nanyang University of Technology, is part of this commitment.
All major international players in the production, distribution, storage and management of renewable energies have seized the opportunity offered by Singapore, EDB and NTU. They become pioneer in Off-Grid solutions, in a region where the potential is considerable.
It is alongside these major players that the IDSUD Energies group has been selected and is developing its new micro-grid solutions.
An R & D platform will be located on the open sea at the gates of Singapore, on the island of SEMAKAU. A network of about ten microgrids will be developped and will form the bigger R & D platform of the tropics.
Rethinking the production, management and distribution of decentralized energy. This platform will act as a demonstrator for its partners, and as a real marketplace for the markets of South East Asia.
IDSUD Energies is participating in this initiative to develop both its mobile microgrid solution and its adapted EMS – Energy Management System, enabling intelligent management of the energy produced, stored and distributed, by its own system as by any other source.
These new technologies must make it possible to autonomously supply isolated or energy-stressed sites and, in the long term, to replace generators, major fuel consumers and, therefore, very large polluters.
