Singapore has deployed its first utility-scale energy storage system at a substation in Woodlands, the Energy Market Authority (EMA) said on Thursday (Oct 22). Its capacity is equivalent to powering more than 200 four-room HDB households for a day. The EMA said that while "solar is the most viable renewable energy source for Singapore", solar energy faces intermittency challenges due to cloud cover and rain in Singapore's tropical climate. These challenges can be mitigated with the energy storage system, which enables the storage of solar energy for later use.
