A new partnership between Energy Market Authority (EMA) and PSA Singapore aims to make the latter’s port operations more eco-efficient by helping reduce overall energy usage and carbon emissions.

EMA and PSA Singapore will jointly launch R&D grant calls in smart grids and energy management systems for the container ports at the Pasir Panjang Terminal. These efforts will involve integrating renewable energy sources like solar with smart control networks and energy storage solutions. With this smarter use of electricity, the ports aim to reduce their overall energy use and carbon footprint.

Ong Kim Pong, regional CEO Southeast Asia, PSA International, said: "Sustainability plays a vital role in the development of our port. As we continue to expand with more automated electric cranes and equipment, power demand forecasts and energy monitoring will become increasingly important.

“Implementing smart grids and developing innovative energy solutions will enable us to better manage and optimise our energy usage, leveraging integrated intelligent real-time communications, Internet of Things, renewable energy storage and digital technologies to obtain substantial energy savings and reduce our carbon footprint.

“PSA is pleased to partner EMA in encouraging the co-development of innovative, future-proof energy management solutions to reshape the entire port energy chain for the better."

Industry partners and the research community can also co-develop and test-bed innovative energy solutions with PSA Singapore, while tapping on PSA’s global networks for access to international markets. The EMA-PSA R&D Grant Call is open until 17 July.
