EMA, Singapore Power call for proposals to test energy storage system

SINGAPORE: The Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Singapore Power (SP) announced on Thursday (May 12) that they were jointly requesting for proposals to implement a utility scale energy storage system test-bed.

The test-bed is projected to be six megawatts in size, which can power 500 four-room HDB flats for a day, EMA and SP said in a press release. They added that the test-bed will evaluate the performance of large-scale energy storage systems for different applications, and "different technologies such as Li-ion, flywheels, and redox flow batteries could be deployed at three substation locations in Singapore".

EMA and SP said that proposals will have to take into account operating conditions under the island-state's hot and humid climate, which impacts the performance of energy storage systems. Space constraints and safety concerns will also have to be factored in "given our highly built-up and urbanised environment", said the agencies.

"Findings from this initiative will help us better understand and facilitate the deployment of energy storage systems in Singapore," EMA and SP said in the press release.

They added that energy storage could help them better manage electricity demand and will facilitate greater deployment of solar energy. This would, in turn, reduce Singapore's carbon footprint and contribute to the Republic's energy independence.

Those interested to submit proposals can do so on EMA's website by 12pm on Aug 3, 2016.

This year in Thailand-what next?

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
