Singapore to launch Southeast Asia’s 1st floating, stacked energy storage system

It will start operations in the first quarter of 2024.

Singapore rolled out the first floating and stacked Energy Storage System (ESS) in Southeast Asia at Seatrium’s Floating Living Lab, with a maximum storage capacity of 7.5 megawatt-hours.

In a statement, the Energy Market Authority (EMA) said the ESS, which is expected to start operations by the first quarter of 2024, can meet the electricity needs of over 600 four-room HDB households for a day in one discharge.

This part of its around $7.3m (S$10m) partnership with Seatrium.

The EMA added that the project addresses Singapore’s land constraints as its deployment footprint is up to 40% less than land-based ESS.

EMA said ESS will support the intermittent nature of solar power which fluctuates during rainy and cloudy periods.
