Tan See Leng on Energy (Resilience Measures and Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill

The Energy Market Authority (EMA) will have important powers to step in to safeguard Singapore's energy security and reliability, as the country shifts towards cleaner and more efficient modes of power generation. It can acquire, build, own and operate infrastructure, enhance the protection of critical electricity and gas infrastructure, as well as impose energy and carbon efficiency on parties licensed under the Electricity Act. Second Minister for Trade and Industry Tan See Leng, who outlined the proposed changes under the Energy (Resilience Measures and Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (Nov 2), said energy security is not just about ensuring supply but also about "energy future". He said the Bill is necessary to ensure that EMA has the levers to navigate the energy transition while ensuring that Singapore's energy supply remains secure and reliable. Dr Tan said the Government will continue to monitor and study further enhancements for a smoother transition.
