Panel Discussion on Lao PDR-Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore Power Integration Project (LTMS-PIP)

Regional power grids can help accelerate the development of renewable energy projects in ASEAN countries and promote economic growth and bring greater energy security to the region. The Lao PDR-Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore Power Integration Project (LTMS-PIP), which commenced on 23 June 2022, serves as a pathfinder towards realising the vision of an ASEAN Power Grid. It is the first multilateral cross-border electricity trade involving four ASEAN countries, and the first renewable energy import into Singapore.

In this session, our panellists will share their insights on the policy and regulatory planning required to implement the LTMS-PIP, and how we can continue to advance the development of the ASEAN Power Grid to enhance interconnectivity, energy security and sustainability through electricity interconnections in ASEAN.

Green grid ecosystems and the latest developments in renewable energy exports

Dr Fraser Thompson will share insights into the role interconnected electricity 'green grids' can play in accelerating transmission of renewable electricity across Asia.

A regional green grid is an ecosystem of interconnected renewable energy, from sources such as geothermal energy, hydropower, or solar energy, shared between nations for mutual benefit and global sustainability. A regional green grid is also a solution to power intermittency and affordable renewable power that could work efficiently and equitably for all countries involved.

This session will explore the future innovation and research required to drive interconnected green grids, contributing to countries meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement, accelerating the clean energy transition, and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Greenification of our Future Energy Grid

Greenification of our Future Energy Grid will have A*STAR scientific experts and technology partner share how research collaborations amongst ecosystem stakeholders are helping to accelerate developments towards decarbonising the energy grid.

Although nascent, the introduction of low-carbon technologies and integrated system modelling of the grid can significantly improve Singapore’s resiliency towards energy needs and provide sustainable alternatives away from fossil fuel-dependent energy production methods. Coupled with industry participation to provide readily deployable energy storage solutions that can help balance renewable intermittency and energy demand management, we can ensure our grid readiness to meet the rising energy demand.

This session will have speakers share and discuss the landscape for research and industry synergises towards driving R&D efforts in decarbonising and building a more sustainable grid.

Ready for Hydrogen - The way to Carbon-Free Power Generation

Hydrogen readiness is a key enabler for conventional gas power plants. To avoid carbon lock-in investments, gas power plants should be ready for conversion to renewable fuels such as hydrogen—or any other renewable gas such as biogas or biomethane.

Compared to large central power plants, smaller distributed engine power plants can be installed at sites where both power and heat is used while achieving very high fuel utilisation rates up to 95%.

Combined with heat storage and back-up boilers, engine power plants can operate flexibly, running wind, solar, or hydro power is unavailable.

INNIO’s Jenbacher brand has demonstrated how hydrogen powered engines can be converted from natural gas to hydrogen operation, and how these engines work with 100% hydrogen. This session will explore achieving output, efficiency, and emissions when operating on hydrogen fuel.

The session will also discuss case studies from INNIO’s Jenbacher H2 projects in Germany and South Korea.

11:55 – 12:15 hrsShell: Singapore start-ups pave the way towards a decarbonised future

The global transition to a net-zero future is picking up speed. Countries and companies around the world including Shell have set net-zero emissions goals to be reached by 2050. In the same vein, our island nation has targets in The Singapore Green Plan to achieve net-zero emissions as a country as soon as viable. But this momentum can only be sustained if we all collaborate to support society’s journey towards a lower carbon future, from governments, corporations, investors, consumers to businesses.

In particular, the inventive and entrepreneurial energy of start-ups are increasingly looked upon to help play a part within the low-carbon value chains. Hear from six local start-ups from this year’s Shell StartUp Engine Singapore cohort about their innovations and how they are supporting sustainable development for Singapore and the world.

Shell StartUp Engine (SSE) is a global innovation programme targeted at early to mid-stage Singapore-based energy start-ups. Through an accelerated six-month programme, SSE seeks to build start-ups’ capacity through knowledge sharing, mentorship, showcase opportunities and position them for success in the smart, clean energy landscape. SSE is in line with Shell’s ambition to becoming a net-zero emissions energy company by 2050 or sooner. It also aims to create lasting value for society through enterprise development. Our official programme partner is Energy Market Authority (EMA), which offers SSE start-ups a chance to secure funding post-programme. More information about SSE can be found here.

APEC Energy Demand and Supply Outlook 8th edition

Now in its 8th edition, the Outlook provides detailed projections of energy production, supply, and demand for each of the 21 APEC member economies. Across two scenarios, the report identifies major challenges and opportunities facing the region’s energy sector; and it assesses the impact of current energy trends and policies on the region’s fuel mix, energy goals, and CO2 emissions.
