Singapore Electricity Roundtable 2019 Highlights

Singapore Electricity Roundtable 2019

Ben Skinner sharing Australia’s experience with renewable energy

The 12th Singapore Electricity Roundtable was held on 30 July at The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore. This year, we welcomed more than 210 participants from Singapore and the region.

The event this year saw robust discussions on trends and issues that are impacting power markets around the world, such as the rapid rise and penetration of renewable energy, and digitalisation in the energy sector. There were also updates on developments in the National Electricity Market of Singapore (NEMS), as well as discussions on the challenges and opportunities facing Singapore’s power sector.

We were honoured to have the Chief Executive of Energy Market Authority – Ngiam Shih Chun – as one of our distinguished speakers this year. We were also grateful to the following esteemed speakers who shared invaluable perspectives from their experience in established electricity markets in Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Singapore – Ben Skinner, General Manager for Policy and Research, Australian Energy Council; Damien Sanford, Chief Operations Officer, Australian Energy Market Operator; Phillip Harris, Consultant and Former President/CEO, PJM Interconnection; Stephen Woodhouse, Director, Pöyry Management Consulting; and Poa Tiong Siaw, EMC’s Senior Vice President for Market Administration.

Roundtable participants using the event app

To improve the participants’ experience and further reduce our carbon footprint for the event, we introduced an event application this year to replace hardcopy conference materials. We also purchased carbon credits to offset the indirect carbon emissions arising from sources like energy consumed during the event, waste generated, international travel by air and local transportation.

The Roundtable ended with an exclusive networking cocktail and dinner at Monti at the Fullerton Pavilion.

We would like to thank all participants for making the Singapore Electricity Roundtable 2019 a great success. We look forward to welcoming both returning and new participants at the next Roundtable in 2021.
