The Experimental Power Grid Centre (EPGC), an experimental power grid facility is officially opened in Singapore. Located on Jurong Island, EPGC, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s (A*STAR’s) centre for energy research is established to support Singapore’s goal toward developing a smart energy economy.  

The facility will pave the way for research and research collaborations with local and international partners to develop future energy technologies in areas of electrical power networks and energy distribution and renewable energy resources, for eventual commercialisation. A*STAR’s EPGC has signed a research collaboration agreement with SP PowerGrid and three MOUs respectively with Housing Development Board (HDB), Meidensha Corporation Japan and National Instruments. These agreements span research in varied fields, including renewable energy integration, advanced high efficiency inverters and smart grid control, with the aim of developing robust, cutting-edge solutions that can be quickly adopted and implemented.  This latest public-private partnerships will add to existing collaborations forged with Vestas and Rolls Royce.
