Find Electricity and Power expertise in Singapore
Singapore has few natural resources of its own. About 80% of electricity is generated from natural gas from Malaysia and Indonesia, whilst oil provides 16.9%, and other sources make up the remainder (2011). The Energy Market Authority (EMA) was formed to ensure a reliable and secure energy supply and promote effective competition in the electricity and gas industries. Since formation, the EMA’s mandate has been broadened to oversee the further development of a sustainable energy market. Generation companies bid to sell electricity every half hour at the National Electricity Market of Singapore (NEMS). There are 11 generation licensees in the electricity market (2010), and there are six licensed electricity retailers, of which five actively compete to sell electricity to contestable consumers. About 75% of the total electricity demand has been opened to competition (2010).
