Biggest and Fastest Energy Storage Containers Built in Jurong Island Three Years Before Target

Nov 2022

Singapore constructed Southeast Asia’s largest energy storage system on Jurong Island, which are referred to as giant batteries and can store a minimum of 200 megawatt-hour of energy. The system is actually container-like batteries that can store surplus energy from the sun or wind for later use, usually at night or during cloudy periods. It will start functioning in November and is ready three years ahead of the Republic’s target.

Energy Market Authority (EMA) stated that besides being the fastest of its kind, the 200MWh fleets of container-like batteries could power the daily electricity needs of about 16,700 four-room Housing Board flats in a single discharge cycle.

The EMA plans to continue to assess the requirement for more such energy storage systems in Singapore to enhance its grid resiliency and support more renewable sources.
