The Asia Green Grid Network was launched last week at the Singapore International Energy Week. Tan Wooi Leong, Managing Director for Energy & Industrial, is second from the right.
Surbana Jurong is among the founding members of the Asia Green Grid Network (AGGN) to drive innovation in support of an interconnected electricity grid to accelerate the transmission of renewable electricity across Asia.
Green grids are carbon-free electricity grids that transmit power generated from renewable resources such as wind, hydropower, or solar energy. The AGGN aims to address the fragmentation that exists in the current green grid research landscape regionally and boost collaboration to support cross-border renewable electricity trade through an integrated grid.
The partners of the AGGN include Sun Cable, developer of the Australia-Asia PowerLink (AAPowerLink); the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR); the National University of Singapore Faculty of Science; Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore); Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT); Surbana Jurong; University of New South Wales; University of Adelaide, James Cook University, and Charles Darwin University (CDU).
“The energy transition is rapidly gathering momentum across ASEAN, as we bring affordable, reliable, and sustainable power to the communities we serve. The Asia Green Grid Network will facilitate the deep technical expertise, research and collaboration that are so critical to help our clients navigate the challenges of global energy transformation,” said Mr Tan Wooi Leong, Managing Director, Energy and Industrial, Surbana Jurong.
