Keppel Energy has been granted conditional approval by the Energy Market Authority (EMA) to import 1 gigawatt (GW) of electricity from Cambodia to Singapore, the statutory board announced on Thursday (Mar 16).
The proposal will see the imported electricity harnessing solar energy, hydropower, and potentially wind power, supported by battery energy storage systems or pumped storage hydropower, said EMA in a media release.
It will be transmitted from Cambodia to Singapore via new subsea cables of more than 1,000km. In response to CNA’s queries, a Keppel Infrastructure spokesperson said the project will require the enhancement of existing infrastructure and the building of new infrastructure.
