Research grants worth $10 million have been awarded to six projects in Singapore, that focus on ensuring that the electricity grid is reliable and continues to be so.
The EMA (Energy Market Authority) have funded these projects to support Smart Grid innovation, spanning areas such as energy analytics, control systems and storage.
Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and co-Executive Director of EIPO, Mr Yeoh Keat Chuan has spoken about the Smart Grid sector and its “robust growth globally”. Because of this growth, the need for increased and continued stability and management is paramount.
These projects provide Singapore’s Smart Grid sector with support for growth, and lay more foundations for the sector as a whole globally.
Another grant call by EMA on enhancing the availability, reliability and overall system efficiency of the power generation sector is currently open and closes on July 18, 2013.
