Singapore will build a first-in-the-region, hybrid micro-grid that combines renewable power from the sun, wind and sea.
The grid will also tap energy management and storage systems to ensure a stable and consistent power supply.
The demonstration grid will be located offshore at the Semakau Landfill and is expected to produce about 1 megawatt of power, which will be used on Semakau for a start.
That amount of power is enough for small islands and villages, and can act as an emergency power supply for cities. In Singapore, it would be able to power about 250 four-room HDB flats.
