Views sought on regulating solar, other power sources

Singapore is reviewing its regulations for intermittent energy sources such as solar power and is seeking the views of the public.

The Energy Market Authority launched a public consultation paper on the issue yesterday.

The paper is available on the agency's website and the deadline for comments and feedback is January next year.

Intermittent energy sources include solar and wind energy, and their output depends on the weather and the environment. This means that if not managed properly, their use could result in blackouts and power disruption.

The paper includes how registration processes can be simplified so that small consumers with intermittent generation sources can be paid for supplying their excess electricity to the national power grid.
