EMA and Keppel O&M launch a grant call for energy storage systems

The Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) have forged a $10 million partnership and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop energy solutions in the areas of distributed energy resources, digitalisation and emerging low carbon alternatives.

As part of this MOU, EMA and Keppel O&M are launching a grant call for solutions relating to energy storage systems and smart power grids for the offshore and marine environment. These solutions should seek to reduce overall energy usage and carbon footprint while enhancing overall operational efficiency. The grant call serves to encourage innovation and capability building for the wider industry ecosystem in Singapore. The insights derived from the grant call could be translated to potential solutions to enhance the grid.

The Joint Request for Proposal (RFP) is focused on the development of marinized energy storage systems (ESS) solutions and IIoT-based smart grid solutions for offshore/marine environment.

The solutions will be test-bedded on KOM’s Floating Living Lab, the first-of-its-kind offshore floating test-bed in Singapore.

Interested applicants for the RFP are required to attend an online briefing on 29th April 2020, 1100hrs, Singapore time (UTC +08:00). Attendance is compulsory for the participation in the RFP. Please refer to the RFP to register your interest for the briefing by 20 April 2020, 2359 hrs, Singapore time (UTC +08:00).

Applications are now open and will close on 24 June 2020, 1200hrs, Singapore time (UTC +08:00). Proposals and all accompanying attachments are to be submitted to [email protected].
