“The government’s first priority was to invest in our power infrastructure to meet growing needs which were crucial for our nation’s survival,” says Energy Market Authority (EMA) chief executive Ng Wai Choong.

He says Singapore today enjoys one of the most stable and reliable electricity systems. With an average interruption time of less than one minute per customer per annum, it is more reliable than Tokyo and New York, which have five and 14.34 minutes, respectively.

“Singapore has grown remarkably over the last 50 years and the energy sector continues to play a fundamental role in powering our economy forward,” adds Ng.
