Spotlight on SIEW 2013

In addition, the International Energy Agency hosted a lunch presentation on its comprehensive analytical study on energy trends and prospects in ASEAN, while a half-day Public Private Partnership (PPP) Conference on power markets and interconnectivity was convened, following the US-Asia Pacific Comprehensive Energy Partnership (USACEP) announced by US President Barack Obama at the 7th East Asia Summit.
  • Singapore signed two separate Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with Cambodia, and the United Arab Emirates, pledging to strengthen partnerships in the energy sector
  • The inaugural Singapore Energy Awards was held, with awards presented to energy student/youth group, Energy Carta; industry veteran, Quek Poh Huat, Senior Adviser, Singapore Power; and Senoko Energy.

Initiatives announced

  • Singapore’s LNG market is set to develop further with the government awarding up to two new licenses to supply the city-state’s next tranche of LNG cargo.
  • To give gas buyers more choice, the Energy Market Authority is developing a Terminal Access Code to provide clarity on how terminal capacity can be allocated to spot import and other ancillary services without affecting the terminal’s throughput. The moratorium on piped natural gas in Singapore will be lifted when BG, the exclusive LNG supplier to the Jurong Island terminal reaches its 3 Million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) franchise or in 2018, whichever is earlier.
  • A Demand Response programme will be introduced in the National Electricity Market of Singapore and is expected to be implemented in 2015.
  • Trials for an electricity futures market in Singapore will begin in 2014, with a launch targeted in the second half of 2014.
  • A public consultation exercise on the regulatory framework for intermittent generation sources, such as solar energy, was launched as part of Singapore’s efforts to maximise the deployment of these energy sources when the technologies become commercially viable.
