Singapore approves the import of 2 GW of low-carbon power from Indonesia

Singapore's Energy Market Authority (EMA) has given conditional approvals for five companies to import 2 GW of low-carbon electricity from Indonesia. The five companies managing the projects are Pacific Medco Solar (600 MW of approved import capacity), Adaro Solar International (400 MW), EDP Renewables APAC (400 MW), Vanda RE (300 MW) and Keppel Energy (300 MW).

In 2021, Singapore announced plans to import up to 4 GW of low-carbon electricity by 2035 from Malaysia and Indonesia. In 2021, it issued a first Request for Proposal (RfP) to select suppliers to import around 1.2 GW from 2027. A second RfP was issued in July 2022. In January 2023, YTL PowerSeraya and TNB Genco signed a joint agreement for the import of 100 MW from Malaysia, marking the first power supply from Malaysia to Singapore on a commercial basis. In March 2023, the EMA authorised Keppel Energy to import 1 GW of electricity from Cambodia to Singapore by 2035.
