DEVELOPMENTS IN THE SINGAPORE ELECTRICITY TRANSMISSION NETWORK

In recent months, we have seen an increase in new generation planting proposals by power generation companies (Gencos). EMA welcomes these proposals, as they will add new capacity to meet growing demand in the future. However, we note that the surge of new plants may lead to a situation of excess
supply in the initial years, as well as some constraints in the transmission network because of the surplus generation capacity. This paper therefore seeks to inform the industry about the likely transmission constraints, and how we see these constraints being resolved in the coming years.
